Oak Forest Recovery provided me a safe environment where I could grow mentally, physically and spiritually.

A schedule was to be kept and chores were assigned. I was afforded food, bed, gym access, transportation, and other luxuries.

Other luxuries or freedoms were to be earned. The rules were reasonable. There were about 15 sober guys in the house. Yet I could find sufficient privacy if needed. There was always a sense of community. the most important thing was that a spiritual awakening through a 12 step program was paramount.

I could not have had a better chance at sobriety anywhere else.
