Review for The Extension Inc, Marietta, GA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I’ve been involved with The Extension for a few years. Initially I became involved with The Extension through my church. I’ve been impressed with the residents as they support one another in their quest for sobriety. Also the residents see the value in the mission as the Alumni (the folks who have transitioned/or completed the program) continue to support the current residents by leading classes, stopping by to check-in, share their stories, help with a meal etc. This isn’t a free-ride, residents get a job and have some skin in the game as they give a portion of their pay-back to the program.

I’ve also had the opportunity to meet with the leaders in the organization and able to access their character as well and their capacity for caring. They have demonstrated both. They know what to expect and how to address the special requirements of their constituents. They also know what’s at- stake and are genuinely concerned with each person admitted for treatment. In my mind this is a tall order, but I am continually impressed with the strong sense of purpose in the leadership.
