The Oaks is special. I admit that although I went to the oaks a broken man who was not estatic about being a city kid from NY in the middle of Greenberg SC I left with Hope, Purpose, Sobriety and people I will forever call family. It is by no means passages malibu but what the Oaks is : is a solution to the darkest and lowest point addicts reach. Rather than massages on fridays and a doctor telling you how bad your childhood was which is why you use. The oaks is filled with peers who have been in your shoes who have some sobriety under their belt and are willing to share how it is obtained. It is an opportunity to change your life for the better. A lot like life at the OAKS you get what you put into it. I never went hungry, I had a bed to sleep in an air-conditioned room in the hot southern heat and I always had someone there for me if i needed something. Here you learn the true meaning of accountability. The oaks is truly special and i recommend it to anyone who is looking for a solution in their life. The fellowship and peer-based program is one of a kind and I will carry it with me for the rest of my life. Thank you to the Oaks and once again if your considering changing your life for the better this is the place to do it.
