All programs are geared around the philosophy of the 12-step recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous and all of our programs are centered around the local and in-house “12 step” meetings.
In 1990, two Augusta businessmen and friends, Sam Sibley and Hampton Walker, had a dream to establish a recovery residence for adult men challenged with alcoholism and drug addiction.
The Hale House Foundation Inc. is a transitional program to assist men over the age of 18 with substance abuse problems to recover in a safe recovery residence setting.
I thank God for The Hale Foundation and the people who work there.
I got to the point where I needed a second chance, third chance and a forth chance. The Hale Foundation never gave up on me. They gave me another chance by helping me take responsibility for my life and renew my relationship with God.
I was taught discipline, responsibility and how to be accountable. I had to learn the world doesn’t revolve around me and the good things in life can’t be found at the bottom of a bottle.
What a blessing the Hale Foundation was for me and my family. It was the place where the miracle happened in my life.
The Hale Foundation has given me a chance to learn how to live my life without drugs and alcohol, how to be a Dad, Son and Brother. My life has changed 180 degrees since coming to the Foundation.
I often think about my life prior to my days at the Hale Foundation. I think about how untreated alcoholism put me in a spiral of anger, hate, and pain. I remember the hopelessness, the self-pity, and the emptiness that had overcame my existence.
The program and the things I learned in the 12-step program have allowed me to rebuild my family life and have a successful career.
