My experience here at sober living is awesome.
I don't know how to explain it. This place has help me so much and has change my life. I could not done it with out them helping me. Tiffany our director has help me so much. She has tought me to love my self and she loves you no matter what the situation is. She the best director sense I been in sober living America.
Spartanburg SC was the Sober Living America campus I attended. First they took me in off the streets with nothing to my name then this program saved my life by teaching me how to live again while I was recovering from my addiction. They tought me morals and structure which I needed to survive in the real world. They drove me to work, A.A meetings and honestly anything I asked that was reasonable. I owe my life to them and the brotherhood. They made me feel loved again between the staff and other guests, which helped me love myself again. I found my purpose in life while there striving to have what other's there already found. I followed the lead of the trainers which would stop in and bless us with there story. I have a relationship with God now and a purpose to live. I'm still in the program and volunteer to work on staff as work development, so I can give back what was giving to me. I'm so grateful for Sober Living America!!!
sparta2 .SLA saved my life! They took me in when no one else would. I was at Rock bottom, with no money and they welcomed me with open arms! I owe my life to them. I would recommend SLA to anyone who is struggling with addiction.
So very grateful to SLA Atl 1, I was welcomed with open arms and immediately felt as if I was at home. I was plugged into recovery on my first day and found a sponsor by my 3rd day here. The staff are well concerned about our livelihood. In the words of Ken "We care more about your life than we care about your feelings." That right there let me know that he truly believes in our recovery even if we may not like the truth's that the staff are telling us. I would recommend SLA to anyone needing help with Sobriety and God.
I'm glad I was able to come here to Atlanta 1, I had couldn't get my SSC due to covid -19 and the staff pooled together to help me order my Birth Certificate so that I could gain employment. The Director Ken, has helped me tremendously along the way. He has shared with me his story and I can tell he is passionate about his and our recovery.
I came to SLA Columbia from another local program. The program that I came from didn't really give me tools for success. In Columbia I got set up for success. They helped me get a great sponsor who I work the steps with and also participate in a lot of leisure activities with him. I really like the church that we started going to recently. We were going to zoom church but I'm happy church is back open. Bryan is great. He really helps me understand the steps. I love the community and how to pay it foward. It is a great program for me.
Excellent Recovery Program!! My loved one completed the program with flying colors and is living sober and loving life.
I am in Sober Living America in Columbia. I am really greatful to be here and the opportunity that has been given to me to turn my life around and to control my alcoholism. The staff here is amazing. I also got a very good job and get along great with everyone in my apartment.
Before I came to Sober Living America I was destitute. I found a solution here and a way to finally stay sober. They taught me to be able to live again and the right way. Not only do they give you employment opportunities, they teach you how to live sober and give you the right tools and solutions to be able to live life to its fullest.
I came to Sober Living America from Salvation Army ARC in Va. Beach Va. after finishing their program. I am an alcoholic and have been struggling with the disease for several years. I came here to transition back into a regular living society while still being involved in my recovery. I stayed here several months. The fellowship here is really great, the Staff is caring and very helpfull as well as a good recovery centered program. They provide transportation to out meetings as well as their own inhouse meetings. We have a spiritual meeting every day as well as a off campus to Church every Sunday now. They also help you to find a good job and provide transportation to and from work. I went to another recovery house but came back here to SLA. I have been to several recovery houses around the country but SLA is by far the best I have ever been to. It treats the whole man, mind body and soul. I consider it my home for now.
my names is Vanessa sober living change my life. I was homeless didn't have no where to stay got in touch with sla and enter the program. Im clean and sober. They got me a job at the chicken plant and i enjoy going to work everyday. I get visit with my children once a month and i enjoy every bit of it . I have a level head and now i can think a little clear now that im not using. without sla i don't no where i will be.thanks for everybody in the program.
#sparta2 Great Recovery Place. Staff is Awesome. Meetings are great this place has really helped me with my recovery and to get back into society. Would Definitely recommend this place.
#sparta2 ive been at SLA a year and ive gotten everything ive needed out of this program and more . Our director Tiffany Mosley does a wonderful job very grateful i got to known her
I have been here for one month and I love it. Kereen holds the best meetings and always has good experience, strength and hope and is always supportive, and Patrick and Kevin and Kiersten have been absolutely instrumental in my recovery. They are always available when I have a problem and they are really good listeners. I could not get through this program without them. I have had nothing but a good experience while here and Im very happy with the services I am receiving. I wish the counseling would be through the rest of the time here but Im glad I at least have Scott's phone number to call whenever I need. My roommate has made being here a lot easier as well as the girls in my apartment and I wouldnt trade them for the world.
Patrick,kiersten,,ms .kereen,and kevin are great. they are always professional and helpful at the same time. when i came to this program a bitter person and a addict that made an excuse about my addiction.through the care that they have for the members here . i can honestly say im today 15 days clean in my sobriety because of them . is not just about getting me a job or giving me a place to stay they truly and honestly care. i would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to recover from addiction
Hey Im Valerie Jones I have been here at SLA for four weeks now and they are awesome here they have a wonderful program here to help you stay clean and sober. Im thankful and grateful through my precious Jesus to be here and all you have to do is let go and let God. The program works it really does and thank you for taking the time to read this.God bless all of you and take care.
When I got to SLA I was in dire need of help. I had just gotten out of rehab for the second time. I had no where to go and no one was willing to help. I thank god I had gotten into SLA when I did. They accepted me with no money upfront, and helped keep me on the path to recovery. I am now 2 years clean and ecstatic at how much better my life is now. Thanks to SLA I have a job, I have my recovery and I can say that I am a happy human being.
I'm at the atlanta mens 1 campus and since I got here almost 3 months ago I have always felt comfortable and welcome. They make sure we are going to meetings and helped get me a sponsor that i felt good to talk to. They hooked me up with a good job that i actually enjoy doing too. Thank you sla for giving me an opportunity to get my life back on track.
#ATLMen's1 is awesome. This community is really tight knit and everyone looks out for each other. The staff is always available and try to do everything they can to help all of us residents. I was here for about 4 months and decided to go back home to try it on my own and that did not work out so I called back and they gave me another chance to do it right. I cannot thank the staff here enough and definitly recommend this place if you need help staying clean
Proceed with caution! This is, by far, the most poorly managed social services/recovery oriented organization I have ever encountered or experienced in my life. It is merely an overpriced, glorified homeless shelter. They do not drug test or search anyone's belongings to ensure the safety and/or integrity of the community. While they seem to pride themselves on accepting new clients with no immediate funds available (simply stating they will "find you employment and allow you to pay back any accruing/past due balance") in all reality, you will find that their primary focus is, and will consistently remain throughout your stay, the MONEY, above ALL else, including your recovery. They boast being a 12 step influenced program, yet they barely, if ever, bring you to 12 step meetings or even hold you accountable to attending them. In fact, their staff, who are merely other residents who are "hired" on as "staff", but are paid, minimally, under the table, do not "work a program" themselves. So much for "Lead By Example". The program is a veritable revolving door, thereby promoting chronic relapse. All I can say is "buyer beware", and if you're looking for a decent recovery community, this is a very risky choice.
This program is run like a 3 ring circus. Most of the time they have someone who has less than a year sober, sometimes less than 6 months sober working as a director for an entire campus. They have zero issues taking your money but giving you back what they owe you is like pulling teeth. This company is a complete scam. Do not waste your time or money. They also create fake email accounts and then make reviews so they look better when searched on Google.
I'm here at the atlanta men's 1 campus and have nothing but great things to say about it. The apartment i'm in is clean and everything works, the roommates are awesome and I have a bed to sleep in. Coming in from living on the street I am so grateful to have a bed and a roof over my head. The staff (Cory and Calvin) are great guys that really care about all the residents and take the time to get to know us and they always make sure we have what we need. They make sure we are going to meetings and doing what we're supposed to and I think that is awesome cuz Im used to just doing whatever I want. This is place is a great start if you really want recovery. A+ in my book.
Atlanta Men's 1 has been great so far, corey and calvin welcomed me in and made me feel comfortable as soon as I got here. They showed me to my apartment with a bed already made for me and introduced me to my roommates who offered to help me with anything I might need. The atmosphere here is like its a big family and that has made getting settled in really easy. I got to go to a meeting my first night here and they are helping me get a sponsor cuz I am used to NA and was wary about going to AA but they gave me advice that has me excited about attending AA now. I look forward to my stay here and woudl reccommend this place to anyone needing help
I transferred to ATL Men's 1 last week from a different campus. I did not want to transfer at all and was kinda mad that I had to, but after getting here and talking with the staff I could not be happier that I ended up here. These guys really care about the residents and push recovery hard, it was awesome to feel that they actually care about my well being and that they want the best for us. I am starting a new job that sounds like it will be a great fit for me and pays well. I was at the other campus for about 3 weeks and didn't get to go to a clothing closet so I was having to wash the few things I had multiple times a week, Corey and Calvin gave me basically a new wardrobe so I am set-up now. This place seems to run really smooth and the community is pretty tight from what i've seen, I like the atmosphere. We get to go to outside meetings twice a day too. Thank you to this staff and the program in general, I appreciate everything thus far!
I'm at the Atlanta Mens 1 campus and this place has been great since I walked in the door. Corey and Calvin have made sure I had everything I need and helped me get a sponsor cuz this is the first time im in a program so I didn't really know what to do. My bed was made for me when I got here and I felt like I was home. The counseling sessions are really helpful and I am starting to open up at the AA meetings. I can't thank sla and the staff at my campus enough. Really glad I came here!
I've been at the Atlanta Men's 1 campus going on 2 months now and it has been awesome! I came in with no where else to go and my family barely speaking to me. The staff has always made sure I have what I need and have pushed me to work my recovery as hard as I can. I am already seeing that those promises they were talking about really come true if you put the work in. My family reaches out to me and actually wants to talk to me, they even brought me to see my little brother graduate. No way that would have happened if it wasn't for sla. I am gainfully employed at a job I actually like, I have a great sponsor that is pushing me to work the steps and I have hope for my future for the first time in a long time. I highly recommend this place if you want a better life and an opportunity to start moving forward from active addiction. Thank you to Corey, Calvin and sla for helping save my life.
Atlanta Men's 1 has been a life saver for me. I came in with nothing to my name besides the clothes on my back and no hope that I could get my life back on track. The staff here made me feel welcome and comfortable as soon as I arrived, they had a bed already made for me and had plenty of extra clothes that I could go through and keep. Corey and Calvin made sure I had something to eat and didn't go hungry until I could get my first paycheck. I got a good job and started working within a week! They even got me work boots. We get to go to AA meetings every day and anytime I have needed to talk, Calvin and Corey has been not only available but willing to sit down with me and talk thru anything going on with me. The staff here truly cares about us residents and I can't thank them enough for giving me an opportunity to get my life back on track! SLA is a great place and ATL Men's 1 is the place to be
I've been at the Atlanta Men's 1 campus for a couple months now and it has been life saving to say the least. I came down here from New York beaten, broken and bruised and needed to find a new way of life. The staff has been great since the day I arrived, always there to help me with anything I need. They are always available and give me hope that I can be successful again by sharing their experiences with me and pushing me to work the steps. This place has been a blessing for me! Would recommend this program to anyone that needs help with this disease!
I have been in SLA for few months in Atlanta 1 recently transferring to a different location Duluth 1.And To be honest it has really added structure to my life especially at this location.Sean Smith the director is a great director.If I had any needs or questions he was there to answer me and help me.My stay has been great and they willing to work with you as long as you are willing to put forth the work yourself.I have been able to rebuild my life and everyone see a change in me.Don't believe the hype cause this program has helped me save my life and build a better relationship with my wife and kids.So I advise anyone if you have a desire to change your life and build stability and a new self confidence when it seems all hope is lost.No point in procrastinating SLA is a good program.If you seen me when I first came I was a hot mess but now I'm striving for perfection inside and outside.All I can say is.Look at me now
#Atlanta Men's 1 has been the new start I needed! I came in beat up and broken, I had lost my nephew to an overdose the morning I came in here. The staff welcomed me with open arms, made me comfortable and told me it was going to be okay. They talked with me about my nephew for awhile, telling me similar stories that they had went thru themselves which gave me hope. I got set up with food stamps, work boots and a job within the first week. I have started working with a sponsor and get to hit meetings every day. If you truly want help in living a positive life and staying clean, this place is where its at
I've been at Atlanta Men's 1 for almost 2 weeks now and this campus has been nothing but a blessing for me, I had been to different locations in the past but the staff here goes above and beyond for all of the residents. I came in with the clothes on my back and no food, I was worried to say the least. Corey and Michael sat down with me and immediately took that worry away by setting me up with clothes and plenty of food before I even got to my room. I could see that these guys really care and they shared their experiences with me. They got me a good job that I like to do and always check in to see how I'm doing and if they can do anything else to help. Highly recommend this place if you want a new way of life!
So far this program has helped save my life and get it back on track. I have relapsed multiple times in my attempt to remain sober. The leadership has worked with me thoroughly to maintain a plan of action and accountability. They helped me get work within the first 2 days of being there and provided food as well as transportation To and from work as well as for grocery runs. The living arrangements are good and overall a great program. The people there are very understanding and friendly yet adhere to proper rules for the sake of sober living. They also provide letters as needed for court issues or work.
Nothingbut great things to say about Sober Living America and Atlanta Men's 1. I was at one of the lowest places in my life when i made the phone call to SLA telling them i needed help. They welcomed me with opened arms and couldnt have made the process any easier. They were very accommodating to my physical ailments and made sure that i was confortable as soon as i arrived. It's been 4 months since i made that call and i am ever so thankful that i did. I cant thank SLA and the Atl 1 mens team enough!
I came to SLA 5 months ago with absolutely no idea how it would change my life. I was hopeless, burned almost every bridge I had, and didn’t know how to love myself or anyone else. During these past five months I have reconciled relationships with loved ones I never thought I would. I have learned more about myself, and formed friendships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. SLA’s patience and understanding with every individual in this program really sets them apart from other organizations and actually gave me the impression that I was cared about and that I can beat my addiction. Forever grateful.
I've been in sober liveing America 14m and happier then I've been in years this is one of the best places of recovery I've. Been in I've been in twenty this the best meetings work they take you to and from when the time is right you can move into the company and work for them if thats what you would like to do i have chosen to do so because i want to give back to the recovery program that saved my life
I came to the SLA Atlanta Mens 1 campus 4 months ago not knowing what to expect. The staff welcomed me into the program and helped assist me with everything that I needed to get back on my feet. They helped me gain employment, placed me in an apartment with a few others guys that are apart of the program who helped me get adjusted. This place truly saved my life and I would recommended it to anyone that I know.
A family member told me about SLA and at that point I was willing to do anything as long as I could just get help so I googled Sober Living America, called the help center number that is on the websites main page and after a 5 minute phone call i was accepted into the program with no money down, all I had to do was get a bus ticket to the greyhound station closest to the Atlanta 1 campus and once I arrived there on the bus then staff picked me Up immediately. I’ve been here for 3 months now and this place has truly changed/saved m life. I couldnt recommenced this place enough to anyone seeking help with addiction. I can’t thank all of the staff members enough!
I was literally at rock bottom when i called Sober Living. I came to Atlanta Mens 1. My life was total chaos. I wanted to go to sleep and never wake up. But I made the call and they told me they would take me. I wasn't used to people saying they would take me in. In the two months that I have been here my life has changed so much. I have friends. I have a great job. I have a sobriety network. This place has given me hope and changed my life. The staff here is caring and dedicated. If you are struggling with addiction, do what I did and make the call.
I am currently at the Greenville 2 SLA location and my experience here at this location and SLA in general, is going great, I love it. Its helped me alot and kept me sober, as of yesterday I am 2 weeks sober and progressing foward. The staff members are great and know all about recovery and I would highly recommend this program.
Sober living america has given me an opportunity at a new life. They have given me the structure and tools to really make a difference in this transition of my recovery. I am truly grateful for this program and all it has to offer.
#Spartanburg SLA has taught me a lot. I have been here for over 3 months and did not think I would ever make it. When I came in I was welcome with open arms and they showed me the way to stay sober. The meetings are great and full of knowledge and experience. Would recommend to anyone.
#Spartanburg This is a great place to get the help you need. I came here and my expectations were exceeded. I have met a lot of great people and got the tools I need to stay clean and sober. This program works if you work it.
Very clean apartments with staff members that are truly dedicated to making you feel as comfortable as possible while going through what is a very difficult time for most. This has been the best experience for myself and my loved ones. I would recommend SLA to anyone who is willing to do whatever it takes to begin a new life.
Sober Living America has given me a second chance. The opportunity to become self sufficiant and grow within a strong knit community and develop not only a solid relationship with my family, but also with others in a healthy way. Ashton Spears (Marietta 2 Director) has a true and genuine care and respect for the residents here. She has shown me what accountability is and what leading a sober life has to offer. I am truly grateful for SLA and the staff that work very hard to meet my needs and guide me towards a better life.
I am writing a review from the Atlanta Women's Campus. I have been here, voluntarily, since 11/22/19. Although I will graduate this month, I plan to stay a full year, based on my experience, thus far. The staff truly cares for the clients and have the wisdom to pass on to us from their own experience, strength and hope. I think of it as filling my "toolbox" with all the tools necessary to use in order to live a sober and meaningful life when I leave. The living arrangements are also fantastic, in that you can build a great network with other addicts and alcoholics, such as myself., to rely on when life shows up (good and bad.) Program fees are very reasonable, transportation is provided, a variety of outside AA meetings are available, as well. The most important thing for me is the availability of the staff to us, at all times. I give SLA Atlanta 5 star!
I came to Atlanta Men's 1 Wednesday of last week on 05/06/2020. It was nothing I expected from previous experiences. I was greeted with open arms and welcomed home. It was the most pleasant experiences I could've asked for being in such a difficult time. I was given hope and another chance to fight this disease with my fellow SLA brothers at my side. I couldn't be any happier of where I'm at, or any prouder of myself that I am here and have made it this far. I would also like to give a special thanks to the staff (Corey Cullen, Eric Matthews, and Michael Risner) who are at my location (Atlanta Men's 1) giving it their all and consistently doing everything they can do in their power to help those in need and that suffer from the disease of addiction!
I came to ATW SLA with nothing and had a terrible relationship with family and myself. Taking the suggestions from SLA I got a sponsor, went to meetings, and got my literature. I made a new family here, we had thanksgiving dinner and i felt like i was at home, for Christmas even though i was away from my mom, dad and other family members I was still with the family i made in SLA. Being here I was scared 7 hours away from home and everyone i knew and now i wouldnt wanna be anywhere else. SLA holds me accountable, they provide me with a sober network and help me get in touch with myself again. The promises have started coming true, I got to visit my great grandparents, my twin that i hadnt talked to for 2 years texted me, my mother in active addiction saw what i was becoming and started going to meetings herself. I scheduled my first ever dentist appointment in SLA and was able to pay for it with no help. I can take care of myself now and without SLA that would have never been possible. This program gave me Faith, Hope, a Home, a Family, a Job, and the ability to feel like i could contribute to society in a positive way instead of being in jail or being homeless. This program lets me be a better person and helps me be a positive influence to my family members in addiction. ATW Womens SLA gave me myself back!!
After 10 years of into intravenous drug use, 5 failed rehab/half way house/program attempts and 12 jail visits I finally accepted that my fait would be “jails, institutions and death” if I didn’t make a change but I had hit a point of hopelessness. I had tried every way possible to quit just like I had tried every way possible to use without having to face the consequences that came with it. Neither one ever lasted very long before failing miserably. I don’t come from “money” nor do I have insurance so I thought that getting into a program that would actually be able to help me was next to impossible but a family member told me about SLA and at that point I was willing to do anything as long as I could just get help so I googled Sober Living America, called the help center number that is on the websites main page and after a 5 minute phone call i was accepted into the program with no money down, all I had to do was get a bus ticket to the greyhound station closest to the campus and once I arrived there on the bus then staff picked me Up immediately. I’ve been here for 3 months now and this place has truly changed/saved m life. I couldnt recommenced this place enough to anyone seeking help with addiction.
What SLA has done for me is help me to get my life on the right road, to a better life clean and sober. I feel good about myself, which I could not have done without SLA. I've become a better person and learned to be more responsive about everything I do. I do like SLA and anyone that needs help, this is the place to be. A real good program to get your life back on track and a good staff. I just want to say thank you for everything.
God brought me here. I find hope and love here. Darkness filled my soul, but the people here brought me back to the light
Sober Living of Columbia has really turned my life around. It has helped me focus on my sobriety and all that is important in life. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone. Bryan Dowd has been a great inspiration for me as well.
I don't have a long story to tell, just "my truth". Seven months ago I called SLA after yet another failed attempt at sobriety. I had just reached the end of hope. What then? I couldn't do it on my own. I had no idea how.
Two days later, I arrived in Canton, Georgia tired of it all, but just desperate enough to try again.
It has not been easy, in fact I wanted to walk away many times, but I found what I had been missing all along...a recovery family that loved me and would never give up, even when I did.
Our staff at Canton has stood behind me supporting every step I've taken, asking only one thing from me...Willingness. They gave me all the tools, then simply let me do the work!
For anyone who can't find sobriety here at SLA, simply put, they just weren't ready to give up fighting a losing battle.
I have to personally thank my Canton recovery family for all they have done. Eveyone, from transportation (Steve, Tristan) and job development (Trevor)to guest services (Matt, Jasmine) and our director John Turk...I thank you for all that you do!
#SLA Spartanburg I have been here over 9 months and this has been a blessing in disguise. I came to SLA broke, busted, and disgusted and have been able to develop into a great leader and role model that my family always knew I could be. I was given suggestions and decided to take advantage of them and run with them and I have never looked back. I have been able to deal with life on life terms and very stressful situations and maintain my sobriety only for them to make me stronger. I enjoy waking up in the morning and thanking God for another glorious day. I have come a long way and it all started with a few simple acts of kindness that was shown to me through once strangers that really cared. Would recommend this life giving program to anyone in need of help because that is what SLA has people in place to do, help and give back what was so freely given to them.
#SLA Spartanburg I have been here over a year and this program has been a blessing. I came in and needed love and they showed me a ton and showed me how to live life sober and have fun. They have held me accountable to do the right thing and it has instilled discipline and structure in my life that I needed and will carry with me the rest of my life.
#SLA Spartanburg This has been a great place to get my recovery. It has helped me with connecting with meetings, a sponsor, service work, getting a job, and all that you would need to be successful at life and in recovery. The staff is great and really cares about what is best for you and will set you up with the best plan for your situation. Would recommend to anyone.
#SLA Spartanburg This has been a great place to learn and grow in not only myself as a person, but my personal recovery. I came here with an open mind and willingness to do what it takes to stay clean and sober. I have gained the tools I need to be able to stay clean and live life on life terms. The location is great with a lot of stuff to do and fun activities. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to start there recovery and willing to work for it.
I am a resident at Sober Living America, Greenville 2 Campus. I can tell you from personal experience about how this program has saved my life and continues to help me through life in a positive, drug free way. By far the best program I have ever been in. The staff helps me with any issue or question. Everyone is very supportive when it comes to struggling with recovery.
SLA has truly changed my life. I'm at the Greenville, SC campus. We have a wonderful, dedicated, and caring Director who is genuinely committed to helping his residents on their journey to recovery. His passion is contagious and a daily inspiration. I would recommend Sober Living of America to anyone who has struggled with addiction. Believe me when I say, miracles are happening here ' one day at a time!'
#Greenville 2 - SLA Greenville 2 saved my life. If it wasn't for the compassion of the staff and the programs that SLA provide, I wouldn't be as far into my recovery as I am.
#GREENVILLE2 - SLA Greenville 2 saved my life. If it wasn't for the compassion of the staff and the programs that SLA provide, I wouldn't be as far into my recovery as I am.
It has its ups and downs, but that Is any program. I love the women who are on staff in Sparta2 they have all impacted my sobriety in one way or another. I have grown in many different ways since I have came to SLA, and love the woman looking back at me in the mirror. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is trying to get clean and get somewhere in life.
