“The recovery program employed by Stand Down House has been beneficial to all aspects of my being: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Using the tools I’ve been taught by the therapists and staff I have been able to maintain my sobriety. This program works.” – Scott, U.S. Army, 5th SFG(A) 1983-1985
