To say Alo recovery helped change my life would be an understatement. Alo recovery helped save my life.
After 23 years of abusing alcohol and not dealing with my depression, I decided to check myself in to Alo. From the initial phone consultation I knew I had made the right decision. They had a driver named Mike who met me at the airport and helped ease my mind and answered my many questions on the drive to Malibu.
Once I got to the Alo detox house over looking the Pacific Ocean, I was put at ease by the friendly staff and councillors, ( many of whom had some experience with recovery themselves). This was an extremely emotional time for me as I realized I would be getting to the core of my problems with Alcohol and depression over the following month, but not once did I feel it unsafe to discuss any and all topics with the amazing staff, therapists and psychologists.
At the next phase my lodging was in a giant mansion with all the amenities including a pool and 24 hour staff on call to help with any issues.
There was an absolute dream team of chefs who made all types of delicious meals to suite any and all dietary restrictions. Can’t say enough good things about how well I was fed throughout my stay.
The daily programming covered a wide variety of courses and the group discussions were where I found some of the most comfort and solidified some great friendships with other clients.
Jared and Evan have created an amazing thing down there in Malibu and I hope they are aware of the impact they’ve had on many lives, including mine.
All I can say is thank you, from the bottom of my heart to all the staff, councillors, and therapists at Alo House. I just received my 3 month chip ( the longest duration of sobriety I’ve had in 23 years) and Im slowly getting my life back in order.
If you are thinking about recovery, please do yourself a favour and reach out the the team at Alo House. You won’t regret it!
