  1. I want others to know how happy I am with my son being at this sober living center. I believe this is the best thing that could ever and has ever helped my son. The structure was surely what was needed. No more excuses. The main thing is that the seriousness of this disease (life or death) is all consuming for the addict. As a family member we need to get out of the way and at times when we don’t and make a bigger mess…either the addict wants to get well or not. Sometimes the rehoritic maybe gets a bit heated, so what, again it’s about their life. How serious are you? Thank you Steve Emery I know you know how serious this disease is and I congratulate you about caring about that. I highly recommend your sober living homes for the very reasons I just explained. Can’t say enough for you and all your help…I would like to respond to the mom who’s son was upset… I hope she can get to an alanon meeting for herself. It is a family disease…thank you.

  2. Just in case your are looking for Sober Living places in Prescott, AZ – this is one to STAY AWAY from. As if dealing with addiction isn’t difficult enough.

    When looking to admit my son Steve Emery was enthusiastic about everything he could do for my son, and pressed very hard for me to mail him a check to secure a bed (he had a waiting list, so I had to act NOW). He was made fully aware of my son’s dual diagnosis, as was his house manager, and they both expressed confidence in their experience and ability to care for my son. He described my son as extremely likable and a ‘great guy’ during his first few days in Anchorage. When my son expressed concerns about being bullied by other members of the household Steve changed completely. He became angry and defensive, he completely refused to listen to anything else and went on and on about how this would affect his reputation. As it turned out reputation is the most important thing to Steve Emory, this comes above the well being of men in his care. He went from positively describing my son, to calling him ‘the most entitled person he’d ever met’ (my son is no angel, but in the many years he has been working to get and to stay well he has never been described as entitled) Within 30 minutes of expressing a concern he threw my son out, told him he was unwelcome and could not return and then categorically refused to even give us even a partial refund. In the end he kept $1,500 for 1 week of substandard care and in our interactions since has been verbally aggressive and extremely unprofessional. I urge you to stay away from this place, there are several well run, professional, ethical and accountable sober living places in the area that are not run solely on one man’s ego.
