People Are Talking About The Club’s Impact

“I was beyond down-and-out when I stumbled — literally — through the Club’s doors. Life at home for me was hell almost from the word go. The Club was really the first healthy home and family I ever knew. It’s where I truly “grew up” and learned how to live a healthy life free from alcohol and drugs. No matter what happens today, I know that with the Club and the people I’ve met there by my side I can weather whatever comes my way in recovery!”

“Ever since getting sober, I struggled to engage with my art. After seeing a poster at the Club for the Recovery Art Walk, I decided to take the plunge and sign up. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made since putting down the bottle. I found my inspiration again and        haven’t stopped creating since. Opportunities like these to grow in recovery are one of the many reasons I love and cherish our Alano Club!”

“I bet I spent over $100,000 bouncing from one treatment center to another. By the time I was 40 I had cycled through half-dozen 30-day programs, at least that many credit cards and a second mortgage to boot, without ever achieving 6 months of sobriety. It wasn’t until I connected with the 12-step programs and amazing recovery community at the Alano Club of Portland that things really changed for good. I learned that recovery is a life-long process, one made much easier and possible with the support and fellowship available at the Club. When I think of all the money I spent to spin my wheels in ‘professional centers,’ supporting the Club seems like a downright bargain!”
