Any Length Retreat is the real deal. As a non-believer, I was hesitant to engage in a 12-Step approach to recovery, but thus far all other methods had proven futile for me. Any Length is entirely staffed by recovered addicts from a variety of faiths (or lack thereof) and made it clear that the process of recovery doesn’t require a religious worldview to be lasting and effective. My addiction to alcohol was destroying my life and the lives of those around me. After 45 days at the retreat, which is a gorgeous property on the outskirts of Austin, I left with a fresh perspective on life equipped with new and better tools to manage the attitudes and conditions that I previously medicated with alcohol. In addition to helping me achieve and maintain recovery from addiction, Any Length also put me in connection with a robust and uplifting community in Austin and beyond. From my perspective, Any Length offers the gold standard in recovery approaches. I know I’m biased from the success I’ve experienced and witnessed with them, but the guys who are running it are genuinely committed to helping others achieve the kind of freedom they have in recovery. The company could quite easily adjust their program to acquire clinical certification so that they could milk insurance companies for inflated expense, a practice that is unfortunately all too common in the industry, but they are passionately against this mindset. The company has legitimate vision and hard-coded ethics, attributes evident in all they do, and it’s refreshing to see that kind of integrity in an organization meeting people when they’re at their weakest. If you or a loved one is struggling with persistent relapse and is serious about kicking their addiction, Any Length is the ideal place to start. I speak not only from my personal experience, but also from the experience of my brothers in their program.John D.
