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.

It has been the best thing that I have experienced. They have given me the opportunity to change my life completely around. And shout out to lex she is a hard worker in and out of Tangu. She has set a good example of what I want my recovery … More and sobriety to look like. The rest of the staff is great as well. My counselor, Julie has absolutely changed my perception on my self and the way I care for others and for that I am grateful. Thank you Tangu.

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.

The apartments are really nice. Super clean and the furniture is cute. The pool and gym are also super nice. The staff is excellent. From the counselors to the housing management. Very helpful and caring people. I highly recommend Tangu … More to anyone who is serious and wants recovery. This is not a flop house. I appreciate all that they've helped with.

I came to tangu in a very desperate state. I just completed a 30 day residential detox and came straight to tangu because I knew if I went home I would relapse. This place and the staff here saved my life. I was able to gain coping skills … More to help with my mental health and gained a deeper understanding of the disease of addiction that I suffer from. I now have 6 months clean from everything. I have gained healthy relationships with other people in recovery. I believed that I was going to die from my addiction and wanted to die, but today I want to live and I have a full life. I still have a long way to go but now I have what I need to live a full life.
