This place was supposed to help me rebuild my life but it ruined it instead. Save your money and go to free AA meetings.

I arrived at The Palm House on January 9, 2017 and have been here for over a month and I am pleased to say I have remained sober. They have fifteen weekly in house meetings directly related to recovery form alcohol and drugs either AA, NA or Celebrate Recovery. They even build resumes and help with job placement. A friend of mine got on with Caterpillar and is so happy he chose to stay here. The accountability here is tough in that they always know where you are. They make me sign in and out and make me attend at least 7 meetings a week and they check your progress. They even give me food here not to mention a roof over my head. Ricky, Joe, Steve, Ron, John and Wanda have helped me and I know they care about us because you hear it in their voice in the meetings. I want to thank the Palm House for everything they do. I feel as though I have a family away from home and if you want real life recovery I would come here.
My name is Sandie. Throughout my life I have battled with the disease of addiction. At the end of my active addiction, I wanted to end it all. I tried, but God had a different plan for me. I was incarcerated for three years in prison. During that time I found God. I prayed. I asked God to one day give me the opportunity. The opportunity to help women who were like me. Who suffer daily the way I had. I was released from prison and I went home. I was miserable, because my children were in active addiction and there was nothing I could do. I found out after spending ten months at home that I had to go to rehab. I tried talking to my probation officer to get a sentence modification. It was a no go. Even though I was miserable at home, seeing my children in active addiction and being so close to falling myself I was willing to put up with it. I was willing to put up with it because I was afraid of change. The day came and I had to go. I had spoken with some people at the palm house and that's where I would be living. I would be there for a year. I was so nervous and was dreading the days that were coming . Time flew by though and something amazing happened. My prayer was coming true.I grew in the program and was promoted to being a house parent. I was starting my journey in recovery and helping other women. The reward of seeing these girls come in broken and afraid like me, then seeing them change and start putting their lives together again. I’m telling you there is nothing like it. No price can ever be placed on it. This is all thanks to being here at the Palm house. Since then I have graduated the program. I am now the Assistant Women's Coordinator. Last and most importantly I have my children back and they are no longer in active addiction either.
I arrived at the Palm House on November 11 of 2015 from Prison. I had been trying to get clean for 15 YEARS. Finally, I put my self-centered attitude away and took the suggestions they offered. I disliked the structure of the Palm House, but stuck with it. Through the structure of the Palm House and the Grace of God, I graduated, and remained clean. Now, I work to help others which is what I learned there.
I stayed here for 6 months. It is only worried about your money. The owner owns pay off Athens and is only interested in money not recovery. Their ways of doing things are NOT fair to others. For the amount of money they make, the houses could be much much better. Your recovery comes last. Your "recovery" is going to na or aa meetings. Look somewhere else! !!
Excellent Staff! Everyone one that I came in contact with at Athens Area Commencement Center appeared sincere in their quest to help! The office was inviting and felt like a safe zone. I would highly recommend using Athens Area Commencement.
I would recommend this treatment center to anyone in need. Very nice treatment center!
