"I want to thank you and the rest of the Choice team for taking such good care of our son over the last 90 days. I think Choice House was just what he needed: a safe place to continue his recovery surrounded by a highly professional and caring staff. That starts with you and works its way down. I think you made more progress with him in 90 days than others have done in years. I just want to thank you again and express to your team the heartfelt appreciation of Anne and me."

"I was so fortunate to find Choice House to continue my recovery. It was the perfect place to transition back into society, which includes all of the step work and therapy that was provided. The people I met there were great and they definitely played a major role in my recovery... At Choice House, I was able to be a full-time student at CU-Boulder. All the other sober houses I looked at would not allow me to take all of my classes. I am grateful to have found Choice House because without it, I would probably be somewhere getting high. The house is so nice and clean, which is pleasantly different than what I was used to when I was getting high all the time. It helped me retrain myself to be a contributing member of society and live a clean and healthy life."

"Choice House was an essential piece to my current sobriety. I stayed at Choice House for 6 months while enduring through the loss of a family member. Having a safe place and in-house meetings helped me get through the unimaginable while recovering from my own addictions. I felt very comfortable in their upscale, nice living environment. I would recommend Choice House to anyone who needs help. I am forever grateful for my time at Choice House."

"My experience at the Choice House was so important to my recovery. I have grown to love the staff and people that live there. The expertise and environment is perfect for people with the real disease of addiction and or alcoholism. I made an investment in my future through living there. I’ll never forget when the obsession to use and drink was removed the peace I felt being able to sit underneath the stars out at the Choice House."
