The poet Mary Oliver gave these instructions for life:‘Pay attentionBe astonishedTell about it’And that’s just what I’m going to do-To say that Tangu saved my life is an understatement, but it is the beautiful story of ‘how’ that I want … More to tell you.When I got to Tangu I was the kind of broken and lost that most do not recover from. If I did not find Tangu, I believe with all my heart that I would not be here today. I was too deep in denial, afraid, and clinging to my secrets- even if those secrets meant death.I relapsed within days of entering the program, and I knew that if I was not honest I would die. Tangu set up everything (and I mean everything) for me to go to an inpatient program the same day. I was terrified beyond belief but they made it so streamlined and easy- from insurance, to paperwork, to people waiting for me there knowing my name and my story. Everyone was so kind and supportive, I felt so seen and safe. Tangu sending me to this treatment center was the very best thing that has ever happened to me, and when I got out, they welcomed me back with open arms.I was then, just ready enough, to let them in, to let them help. If you want help, man, is it there. From the group educational classes on specifics like codependency, process addictions, finances, anger management, and the science of addiction, etc. etc. to weekly yoga and sound baths from an outside professional to get things moving and healing in your body, to art therapy, trauma therapy, I could go on and on. Whatever you need, it is there or they will help you find it. You also have a personal counselor who will be specifically in tune to your recovery journey.The community there was such a huge part of my recovery as well, finding that connection with others- that deep knowing that you are not alone, you are not so desperately unique nor a victim. The friendships I have made at Tangu are like no other I have had in my life and are so special to me. It is a bond that is only made through this shared desperation and desire for change and growth.Tangu also pairs your recovery with AA and the 12 steps, so that when you graduate you have a sponsor and a stable community outside of their walls. Once you are a graduate of Tangu you are forever welcome there- to any class, to see any counselor at any time, as well as their alumni group that meets weekly to support one another in this complicated thing we call life.I have been astonished by Tangu, by their commitment to help and to guide. For them giving me the tools I need and letting me fail when I think I know it all, for being there when I fall on my face, and helping me get back up with compassion, for teaching me humility, and teaching me not just to live sober, but to live with hope, joy, and on life’s terms as they come. I am forever, so abundantly grateful.

To start off I’m beyond grateful for the doors that were open for me to be able to go to Tangu. After being in many recovery programs in the past I was hesitant to go to another but I am so glad I let go and gave it another chance. I walked … More in broken, beat down and hopeless and walked out with a confidence and love for myself I never have had in the past. All of the staff cares tremendously between the classes and just the small talk each and every one of them built me back up and made me believe in myself again. They say it works if you work it and that’s the truth. As long as you come in with a willingness to change they will have your back all the way. Forever grateful for the experience I had and for the people at Tangu who showed me how to love life again.

My experience with Tangu has been amazing. The growth I have gotten in my recovery from not just my counselor, but everyone affiliated with Tangu. They are so supportive, in helping resolve feelings, emotions, fears, shame, guilt, and so … More many other things that we as clients are dealing with so new in recovery. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking recovery from drugs, or alcohol.

How can I properly put into words the gratitude I have for Tangu? After leaving an inpatient program, I found Tangu through word-of-mouth and called immediately. Robert Jordan, the Program Director, took my call directly and within 24 hours … More I was at Tangu. I've been in the IOP program and their Sober Living since December 8th, 2021 and can say with complete confidence that I owe my continued recovery to them. The guidance I have received from the staff and my fellow peers has given me the tools, support, knowledge and wisdom I need to live a sober and constructive life. As Jordan says, we all have a purpose. After years of addiction, I am finally finding mine.

From medication management to individual, personalized counseling with my counselor Michael, I can't imagine a more stable and healing environment at this stage in my recovery.
As for sober living, the apartment i'm in with my 3 housemates is incredible. My housemates and I have become family and the connection and strength we share is invaluable.
If you need help (and boy oh boy did I), you'll find it and so much more here.
Tangu has had a great impact on my recovery journey. Robert jordan is a very qualified therapist who understands the struggles of addiction. I highly recommend tangu to any one seeking a new life in recovery
