Allie, Alumni, 2014
“From the first time I contacted Alo House, I felt supported and cared for. Evan, co-owner, and the Intake Director, guided me through the process on how to get to treatment from the other side of the country. Even over the phone, they were warm and kind and I knew I was making the right decision.
The properties are gorgeous. The groups are fabulous. The therapists and staff truly care about you and your well-being. I was at their sober living house for approximately 3 months and the experience challenged me and helped me to see things about myself that have been essential in my recovery. After attending Alo House, I have the most sober time since 2009 when I first attempted sobriety. After being a chronic relapser for 5 years, I finally feel like I have a strong footing in my recovery.
From equine therapy, to spending time with the animals at Big Heart Ranch, outings to the Self-Realization Temple with resident meditation and spirituality guide — Jaymee, hiking trips, sharing amazing meals together…I remembered that a sober life can truly be fun and rewarding. And that the relationships I build in recovery are the most authentic and rewarding relationships I will ever have.
As an only child who never had much family, I can say that Alo House is family. These people are amazing and truly care about YOU. You are not just a number or dollar signs. The sense of community is absolutely amazing and I will always hold my experience at Alo House and the people I met there dear to my heart.
Best decision I ever made. Hands down.”
