I lived at Akron for almost a year and it was life changing. Because of Akron I have a successful career and I finally got my life back, I learned the tools necessary to live my life independently. Management at Akron really cares about each resident. Akron House is a place where change happens IF you're willing to do the work it's an amazing place to focus on yourself and your sobriety.
I moved into Akron when I was about 5 months sober, they took me in and gave me an opportunity to help run one of their houses. While I was at Akron they supported me through every obstacle I endured, I met with a sponsor weekly as well as sponsees. I'm always grateful for Akron because they were there for me when I went through my transition of getting my son back. It was the scariest time of my sobriety. Today I have been out of Akron for 8 months and being a full time mother in recovery. If you're willing to put the work you will succeed, I'm glad I was able to be in aplace with people who truly care about me and my sobriety.
I moved into Akron at around 6 months sober. I got sober here in Louisiana but returned to Jersey for a few months after loosing my sister to an overdose. Akron took me in with loving and open arms. I got through my sisters death with the help and support of my fellowship in AA and Akron. I moved out after a year sober into my own place and have maintained the same job, friends, fellowship and a learned how to live a happy and healthy life through the ups and downs that get thrown at us. Akron has blessed me with some life long friends and tools I need to handle any situation thrown at me.
