Alco house is a great place to begain your road to recovery. There are many people here with years of sobriety. Rules are simple to follow and theres plenty people around here to help you. Ive been around alco for 20+ years and am currently closing in on 7 years of sobriety. This house has saved my life. It by far has the highest sucess rate of any recovery house in jacksonville and i would recommend it to anyone trying to and wanting to help yourself get sober .You can do it with Gods help. thanks GOD BLESS ALCO HOUSE JIM P>

The manager (kris or chris or something like that) uses the threat of kicking out or making things hard on the girls who come thru there in order to try and get them to do "favors" for him behind closed doors.

A real sleezeball if there ever was one.

Heed my warning, do NOT chose Alco House for your recovery. The manager Chris Haines kicks people out of the house simply because he doesn't like you, or you don't fit into his Alco House clique. Additionally the house is falling apart, during my stay there, one person had the ceiling cave in on their room and our bathroom--which we had to share with 7 other guys--was broken down for three days. That left one bathroom for a house of 30+ people.

And to make matters worse, there are people using drugs in the house. I heard that some of the oldtimers there actually sell drugs to other residents.

You know the place is struggling when the manager has to write a review of the place. Don't believe me, see that third comment below. Mr. Haines has a horrible reputation in the recovery community.

Just to give you an idea of my situation, I am working the 12-step program, have a sponsor, attended all their mandatory meetings and Mr. Haines still kicked me out because he seemed to think I didn't fit in to his house. Sure he made up some trivial rule I broke to save face, but that's the truth. Mr Haines is putting people's lives at risk but the way he is running his house. While I was there, I witnessed at least three people that were kicked out of the house, not for using drugs, not for not doing their chores, not for anything near important. Simply put, Mr Haines didn't like them, and he doesn't think twice about kicking people out on the street.

He does not care one bit about the residents in his house.

Choose anywhere else but here. Trust me. Mr. Haines is not a respectable person. You don't want to end up on the streets. while you are trying to get sober simply because you rub some old guy the wrong way.

And finally this place is littered with racist comments, some said by people on staff. Matter of fact I cannot rule out that Mr. Haines kicked me out of the house simply because I am of Hispanic decent.

For SHAME MR. Haines. For SHAME.

I entered Alco House on June 13, 1999 now 13 years later I am still sober (& clean). Alco gave me a safe enviroment in which to detox and regain my desire to live....My heart is full of gratitude for this establishment....

Best House in The City – Although I have not had the pleasure of living in the house, I have met many of the tenants and directors. A great group of folks, comfortable living setting and proximity to meetings and events that really help us visitors in recovery. All is Neat, Clean and Well Kept. You will not be disapointed! Go visit for yourself.

Thanks for allowing me to write,

Kevin
