My recovery experience at A Step in the Right Direction was instrumental to my finding a life free of alcohol and enjoying nearly ten years of sobriety. The luxurious setting, combined with comfort, felt like home to me in such a way that I was able to focus on my recovery journey. I worked the 12 Steps with my sponsor, attended daily meetings, and participated in our community at A Step in the Right Direction. What I found was profound healing and a lifelong community of support. Linda Butler, the founder of ASITRD, has a passion for recovery that is contagious. She empowered me to be the best version of myself sober, and I remember that to this day. Many thanks to Linda, the staff, and the incredible community of women at A Step in the Right Direction. You changed my life.

Horrible experience here. Stayed for 3 months. Owner had her kids living in the same facility as the clients. When I finally decided to leave the owner told me i'd never make it because she was mad I was leaving. Again - one of the worst sober living/treatment facility.

Very luxurious and very clean. The house manager was extremely attentive to the patients every need and was always available 24 hours a day. Hard to find a weakness with this exceptionally well maintained and professionally run facility. From the point of intake the staff and director were very kind and showed a high level of concern and expertise. Very well maintained and beautifully furnished gender specific sober living homes for men and women. The homes are pet friendly, which makes a real feeling of being in your own home. The staff is very gracious and concerned, and take the extra time and effort to make the environment feel so comfortable and safe. Really very well run facilities, with just the right amount of structure and compassion.
