Anonymous, Mom, 2014
“Words can’t express my gratitude to Alo House. When I think about the people that have literally helped to save my daughter’s life, I think of our friends at Alo House. From day one and my first conversation with Evan, I felt really blessed to feel so much empathy, understanding and love. Thank you for that Evan.
I was so incredibly relieved to know that my daughter was in good hands. More importantly, she has grown to love the Alo House family as her family. It didn’t start out that way, but by the grace of God, something seemingly impossible in the natural happened. She had been in detox for nearly a week at another facility when we found Alo House. They made all the arrangements to pick her up from detox. Literally 30 minutes before the pickup time, my daughter called me and said she wasn’t going. My heart sunk. I knew she was still sick and headed for life-threatening trouble. I don’t know how he did it, or what he said, but somehow Jaymee talked her into not only leaving with him, but staying at Alo House once she arrived. To me, he’s an earth angel, and I will never forget everything he has done for my daughter. It was nothing short of divine intervention and brings tears to my eyes.
My daughter really thrived in the group sessions. I absolutely cherish the pictures I have of her from rock climbing and hiking activities. She looks so ALIVE. And she loved the equine therapy with the horses. She was able to do some volunteer work and community service on the ranch which really gave her a sense of well being and built up her self esteem. Priceless to recovery.
As a Mom that will never give up trying to help my daughter, I am so grateful to Evan, Jaymee, Jared, Bob, Susie, the therapists and the entire staff at Alo House for never giving up on my daughter, loving her, and for everything they do to help people in recovery. How could I ever thank them? With all my heart.
If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, turn to Alo House.
With deep love and gratitude…”
