"T.J. D."

It was 30 days in rehab that I was introduced to the term Sober Living Environment. I was able to tour a few in the Sacramento area and once I was introduced to CSTL, "Mad House" seem to have everything I needed to help me stay sober and much, much more.

I checked out of rehab and moved into CSTL with just 60 days sober. I was overwhelmed at first, however I knew I had made the right move. Having to share a room was something I never thought I would have to do, meanwhile accountability is something that CSTL has to offer and I realized that On day one.

CSTL provides a safe and comfortable environment to stay sober. The amenities are countless. One price for everything, 3 meals a day, bath products, WiFi and AA and NA meetings on site, you literally just have to worry about staying sober, working with a sponsor, assigned chores and keeping a clean room.

Above all you are surrounded by alcoholics and addicts. You always have someone to talk to, To relate to and someone to talk to you. The fellowship and friendships you are able to encounter are very important to staying sober.

I am still a resident at CSTL and have been able to be a part of the community and a part of the CSTL family. As a senior resident now I am able to make new residents feel safe and welcomed. I am where I am suppose to be. I take one day at a time. I know without the program at CSTL I would not be the person I am today and I am not worried about tomorrow, No Matter What!!

Who I am today is a direct result of the teachings within the CSTL homes, AA and without putting in substances to change me.  I became totally aware of the love, compassion, and sharing of my experiences, the strength and hope to not only new arrivals but how we support each other on a daily basis; who knows better that people of "like" how to walk us thru turmoil that is just usually our perceptions anyway.  Don Troutman has created something so special within CSTL that it can never really be explained. I suppose that's the way--Bill and Bob--felt when they began this AA journey themselves!  I want to encourage anyone who is suffering any addiction issues to give Clean and Sober Transitional Living a try.

 "The relationships that you build are so amazing . . . There’s just a connection here. It’s really hard to explain, but we just understand each other here. It’s like a different kind of family.

"Gary R."

After 30 days in treatment, I spent about 6 months in an out of different places before going to Clean & Sober Transitional Living.  The place saved my life... without a doubt the best decision I ever made towards my recovery.

I stayed at Clean & Sober Transitional Living for more than three years and even became an Assistant Manager. I feel that transitional living is the best course to take for a person in early recovery from substance abuse. Clean & Sober Transitional Living has so much to offer to a recovering addict in the way of support, meetings on property, and a structured life style that helps a person cope with the real world without the use of drugs or alcohol.
