This is the best place I’ve ever encountered on my quest for recovery. Great staff and I’m doing better than ever. Thank you Alo

I’ve been sober for over ten months. I’m gainfully employed and a productive member of society. I spend my free time either creatively or helping other people. I have strong relationships with family and friends. My word means something now. I get places on time. I clean up after myself. When I interact with police, I’m not concerned and neither are they. I’m rarely angry and, in fact, often laughing….Anybody who knows me very well could tell you that this is crazy, impossible even, and yet ALL true. I owe this to ALO House Recovery Centers and, in particular, Bob Forrest. I’ve lived at their sober living in the Hollywood Hills for about a year. Almost all the residents I’ve met here, I now consider close friends. The Residential Advisers are compassionate, knowledgeable, and ethical. The owners, in-take staff, and case managers do not just see dollar signs when you walk in. I came here with nothing. They would’ve had to been hallucinating for that to be true in my case. If you or a loved one is struggling with alcoholism or addiction, I would recommend contacting ALO. It was, hands down, the best decision I made in a long time.

Alo Recovery Centers provides the highest standard of ethical, compassionate care. Evan Haines and Jared Valentine, the founders, have staffed their programs with integral professionals of whom I hold in the highest regard. From the admissions process, throughout all levels of care, to a client’s discharge; as a professional in this field, I value the ethics and dedication they hold not only to clients care but also to the outside professionals involved in bringing a client to their program. It is refreshing to trust and know that each client referred will receive compassionate care, individualized to their specific needs and presentations, community, and foster a skillset to prepare him/her for their ongoing journey to sustain a life of recovery. To the Alo Recovery Team, I thank you for your continued excellence in service to those in need!

I have worked with Alo House Recovery Centers for many years. They have helped numerous clients of mine, and the staff there have been so passionate and dedicated. It is so nice to have a facility that is a one stop shop for client needed Detox, Residential, and Aftercare. If you are looking for a facility that understands the whole client, and can provide every level of care, this is the place to go! Wish I could give more than 5 stars.

I would recommend Alo House to any loved ones who are looking to have a positive and informative treatment stay. Clinicians and case managers were well prepared and all staff members were kind and compassionate.

My experience with Alo House is that the staff members are a team and during times of crisis, they come together very easily to help out the most important person- The Client. I have had the opportunity to see first hand the interactions between clients and staff members (RA's, Therapist, Case Managers, Shift Leads, Admissions, HR etc..) and regardless of the position held, the staff members interact with a genuine concern for the clients. They key is making connections and building a relationship with the client so they can feel comfortable and be open to all that Alo has to offer. I would recommend Alo for anyone who needs help with a substance abuse problem.

Alo House changed my life. I came out to Malibu for treatment from NYC not knowing what to expect and not knowing if it would actually help me. Well, Alo House changed my perspective on how to live my life. After living there for 7 months, it felt like home. The work I did there was work I will be eternally grateful for. The staff at Alo House care so deeply about each client and make you feel so safe and secure in your recovery. Yesterday I had 1 year sober- an achievement I didn't think could be possible. I wouldn't have reached 1 year without the help from this incredible facility. I still consider it a home and HIGHLY recommend sending yourself or any loved ones. A lifetime of gratitude to everyone at Alo House. ❤️

Alo House Recovery Center has a unique community of people with personal life experience in recovery. The people I was surrounded by had the same desire to stop the self-destruction eating away at our core. Alo House helped promote a safe environment for me to discover the the true essence of myself without substances. I enjoyed being in every group/session I was a part of because there wasn't a single group I didn't learn from! I was able to find my way through my dedication to following suggestions and through discovering the spiritual aspects of life that I would never have attempted in my disease. When I first came to Alo House Recovery Center, I could definitely say I had hit my breaking point. I had nothing left to lose on my journey to recovery. My daily drinking habits led me to believe I was not going to live a life without alcohol and other drugs. Nothing more could result from my actions, until I came to Alo House. I was on the brink of wishing my life had ended as the result of one of several DUI convictions. My life, in case you didn't already get it, was officially over. I immediately decided that this was "it." I would finally have the courage to acknowledge that I had been defeated by alcoholism, and that I needed to ask for help. My mother searched and searched for different avenues of treatment until she came across the Alo House website. She said, "this is where I think you should go." Again, with nothing to lose, I reluctantly picked up the phone and spoke with Soraya. She was always really great at getting back to me and getting me to the facility. I was picked up at the airport by Jaymee, the spiritual adviser. The intense therapuetic and spiritual practices Alo House introduced to me help me stay sober and continue my sobriety. Alo House helped me mentally, physically, and emotionally throughout the court case that lead me to my feeling of defeat. I learned that I wouldn't get out of my conviction, but I would be offered alternative sentencing that was far from the usual as the result of my diligence to stick with the Alo House program. I learned that it is most definitely possible to keep moving forward, even when there is something trying to pull me back. I continue to stay in touch with the Alo House Recovery Center through their Alumni Program. I am so grateful for Alo House and for its commitment to helping others. There isn't anything I wouldn't do to give back or pay forward the way they paid it forward for me. Thank you Alo House.

I wish I could say more to describe how far they went to help me, or how far they've gone to help other people I've seen struggling. Compassion can't be taught, and somehow every staff member seems to be seasoned in the art of compassion and healing. I've worked in the recovery community and this is the only place I'd feel comfortable recommending to anybody.

I'm a parent, and my son had been to at least five treatment centers before a friend recommended (and took him to!) Acadia Malibu. I felt like my son, even more than my husband and me, had given up hope. With crossed fingers, I can now say that he's approaching a year sober and has a job (in recovery) that he loves. Much of his progress is due to the commitment, friendship, and optimism of owners Jared and Evan, who support their attendees as friends. They also pick their staff with great care and attention. The people at Acadia Malibu became my son's friends, supporters, and family in recovery. I will be eternally grateful.
