“Absolutely the best recovery center in Texas-hands down. The staff here are incredible. I like to refer to them as the ‘Dream Team.’ All of them are very strong in their recovery with great passion for helping others. I’ve seen countless men have life-changing experiences as guests in the ALR community and carry it with them as they leave. I HIGHLY recommend this facility for any men struggling with alcoholism/addiction.”

A man grateful for his own recovery, Robert and his family founded Any Length Retreat to help others find lasting recovery from substance use disorders.

Taking his first drink at age 12, in and out of multiple treatment centers through his teens, and blaming everyone else for his problems, Robert eventually ran out of road, using heroin, and found himself pleading guilty and sentenced to 30 months in prison. During his incarceration, his Higher Power reached him for the first time, and he felt complete freedom despite being locked up.

In 2012, Robert and his family founded Any Length Retreat and committed to a life of service to those who suffer from this disease. As a Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist, Robert finds his life’s purpose through Any Length Retreat’s mission and vision.

John’s struggles began at an early agenever feeling like he quite fit in anywhere or with anyone. His struggles to make friends and sustain meaningful relationships ultimately led him to use alcohol and drugs as a means to fill the void. Eventually his substance use spiraled into addiction, leading to a disastrous car accident, severe depression, suicidal thoughts, and an overdose. Despite his unhappiness and negative consequences, John was unable to stop, and at only 17 years old, he found himself in drug and alcohol treatment.

After 118 days in treatment and a spiritual experience through the 12 Steps, John became willing to go to any length to maintain a life of recovery. Although he wrestled with the spiritual aspect of the 12 Steps at first, the notion of crafting a God of one’s own understanding finally resonated with him, and he was able to embrace the freedom, forgiveness, and joy that the program brings forth.

Sobriety and a God of his own understanding have given John the chance to experience life in a new, fun, and revolutionary way. John has worked as part of the Any Length Retreat family since 2017, and he says it has been one of the greatest and most fulfilling experiences of his life. 

“Our slogan ‘Recovered for Life’ is a promise that we offer to all the men who come into our care, one that every staff member has seen come true in their own lives. We simply try to carry the message outlined in the Big Book of AA.” – John

Having spent much of his youth overseas, where there is no drinking age and a high accessibility to illicit drugs, John developed a substance use disorder at an early age. By the time he returned to the U.S. to attend college, he was using drugs and alcohol daily, even resorting to dealing drugs for money. Years later his addiction would cost him two marriages, his family, his career, and eventually, his freedom. 


With nowhere else to turn but his Higher Power, John sought a path to lifelong recovery at Any Length Retreat after seeing their success with other men who were just like him. He is now blessed with a beautiful life in recovery, restored relationships with his family, and the ability to use his experiences to help others overcome the disease of addiction. From the day-to-day activities, intervention services, mentoring, and business development, John has made it his life’s work to show others that there is a solution.

Conor grew up with a loving and supportive household in Pasadena, CA with his amazing parents and sister. He was an avid participant in team sports and thrived in athletics. His early interests included football and club volleyball, as well as playing music and creating art. As a child he struggled academically and found himself getting in trouble at school and with the law. Unaware that he could have the predisposition of potentially becoming an alcoholic/addict because of family members who had struggled with this disease, he began experimenting with substances in his teenage years.

He attended an all-boys, private, Catholic high school in Los Angeles where he was raised in the church, was involved in his community, and excelled in team sports as captain of both the football and volleyball teams. On the weekends he would go to parties, drink alcohol, and smoke marijuana with friends. He then got accepted to the University of Arizona with the intention of playing football but gave up such dreams to pursue the life of the party. He studied sociology and studio art. Over time he passed the point where drinking and using was no longer a luxury, and it became a necessity. As a result of these newly acquired addictions, he flunked out of school.

Over the course of a decade he found himself in and out of hospitals, jails, and treatment centers for his opiate, methamphetamine, and benzodiazepine dependence. He also struggled with trauma, depression, and anxiety from a very early age. After being sober for a while, he went back to school at Prescott College in Arizona, where he studied counseling psychology and wilderness education.

Unfortunately, he stopped working the program that had got him sober, relapsed, and was eventually incarcerated. Flash forward three years, and he found himself at the door of Any Length Retreat completely broken, traumatized, lost, and desperate. Any Length welcomed him with open arms, where they helped guide him on his journey of recovery. Through patience, love, encouragement, and wisdom, the Any Length team was able to help him grow into a man of purpose. They offered him a solution that he was willing to work for and has since recovered from his addictions.

He now works at Any Length Retreat as a Retreat Mentor, guiding clients through their recovery process. He is a fun-loving, hilarious, patient, and encouraging man of recovery who has since dedicated his life to carrying this message to others who are currently struggling with their own alcoholism, and practicing the principles he has learned in all of his affairs.

Conor is a die-hard University of Southern California football fan, and he spends his free time hanging out with friends, growing spiritually, kayaking, paddle boarding, backpacking, going to concerts, attending AA meetings and fellowship events, sponsoring other men, spending time with his girlfriend, playing volleyball, painting, and going to the gym.

Conor symbolizes what this program can offer addicts and alcoholics who are striving to turn their lives around.
