  1. For years I’ve traveled the country trying to get sober, living in many different sober living homes along the way. The Oaks House is nothing short of amazing. The structure and the community I built while living there absolutely saved my life and set me up for long term sobriety. For me, one of the most important aspects of the home was being separated from the men. I was placed with women who truly wanted to get better and together we got to work on ourselves each day. The owners are very loving and supportive, and provided everything I needed to put my recovery first and rebuild my life.

  2. The Oaks House sober living completely changed the trajectory of my life. I had been trying to get sober for over five years prior to moving into the Oaks House, and I couldn’t stay sober longer than a couple of months. The day that i moved into the house is the day that my life started to change. The structure that they provided pushed me into an amazing recovery community, where i made some friends that i will have for the rest of my life. They Provided me with a safe and comfortable environment where i was able to work on myself and start building a life. The Owners of the home and the fellow residents that I lived there with very quickly became my second family and continue to be a huge part of my life and my recovery. Words cannot express the gratitude and love that i have for The Oaks House and all they have done and continue to do for me.

  3. The Oaks house is run by an extremely hypocritical drug addict and his money hungry hypocritical wife. They are unreasonable and very controlling and they make people hand over their government benefits food stamps cards so they can buy food for their business. They tell other people that they have to go get food stamps and give their card to them in order to stay living in the house. It is illegal for anyone living in the house to have a government benefit food stamp card because Jim and Luciana are supposed to provide the food and there’s no reason anybody needs these government benefits while living here. It is also illegal for Jim and Luciana to force people to hand over their own government benefits. Jim and Luciana pick and choose the standards for each person and it is extremely cynical, hypocritical, and sickening to watch people claiming they are helping people recover yet completely unwilling to look at their own actions.
