This July my son will be getting married to a beautiful girl that he thought he lost forever. That would have happened if it had not been for Evan and Jared, cofounders of Alo House. He has been sober for going on four years. Thanks to Alo House and the care and education they provide to their clients, I have my son back to the kindhearted, considerate person he was before drugs. I cannot thank Evan, Jared and Alo House enough.
