Just in case your are looking for Sober Living places in Prescott, AZ – this is one to STAY AWAY from. As if dealing with addiction isn’t difficult enough.
When looking to admit my son Steve Emery was enthusiastic about everything he could do for my son, and pressed very hard for me to mail him a check to secure a bed (he had a waiting list, so I had to act NOW). He was made fully aware of my son’s dual diagnosis, as was his house manager, and they both expressed confidence in their experience and ability to care for my son. He described my son as extremely likable and a ‘great guy’ during his first few days in Anchorage. When my son expressed concerns about being bullied by other members of the household Steve changed completely. He became angry and defensive, he completely refused to listen to anything else and went on and on about how this would affect his reputation. As it turned out reputation is the most important thing to Steve Emory, this comes above the well being of men in his care. He went from positively describing my son, to calling him ‘the most entitled person he’d ever met’ (my son is no angel, but in the many years he has been working to get and to stay well he has never been described as entitled) Within 30 minutes of expressing a concern he threw my son out, told him he was unwelcome and could not return and then categorically refused to even give us even a partial refund. In the end he kept $1,500 for 1 week of substandard care and in our interactions since has been verbally aggressive and extremely unprofessional. I urge you to stay away from this place, there are several well run, professional, ethical and accountable sober living places in the area that are not run solely on one man’s ego.

"...and when we caught up in the Super Sucky Vortex of Entitlement and we think that somehow we deserve these things, that we deserve all the stuff, all the fucking junk that we have been told over and over that we should have, when we get stuck in that vortex of really giving a fuck about the stupid shit, that is when we are most miserable."
It didn't happen when I turned 50, but sometime after I turned 51 I stopped caring so desperately about what people thought of me, and I have to say that it is really fucking awesome (yes, I will u...

If if were up to me I would only teach young, shirtless men who were muscular, super attractive, with lots of money, because, let’s be honest, who has time for any man over 30?
