SOZO has been one of the greatest and most life impacting experiences I have ever had.  SOZO has bandaged and healed me of all my spiritual and mental wounds.  SOZO has transformed my thinking to be more righteous in the sight of the Lord.  This experience has renewed my mind with structure, responsibility and discipline.  SOZO has taught me how to live and apply to my life the Christian principles found in the Bible and the 12 Steps.  I am learning how to successfully maintain my sobriety, faith, and spiritual center.

Former Client

In order to subdue the beast of addiction, God led me to SOZO Recovery Center.  A complete life change in people, places, and things in my life was called for.

SOZO is located in a serene country setting away from the hustle and bustle. This allows for a healing environment which was needed for my recovery.  I absolutely needed to be away from the distractions of the world.  This spiritual six acre setting where SOZO is located allowed me to focus entirely on what I had to do to transform from being and addict to a clean and sober child of God.  This is what SOZO has given me and many others.

The recovery study groups, one-on-one counseling sessions and Bible study classes, as well as complete involvement with the Hot Springs Village Church of Christ have truly given me the change in lifestyle that I needed to stay sober.

I can honestly say that, to the best of my ability, I am living according to God’s will now.  Today, I help others in the community by doing volunteer work.  Family relationships have been restored. My God is a God of restoration and I pray to Him and praise Him because I am continuously grateful to Him for what He has done for me.

My plan is to continue to learn how to live a happy, sober life by becoming an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous when I leave SOZO and return home.

Before coming to SOZO and attending A.A., I didn’t think that I could live sober and be happy every day. SOZO taught me that this is possible. Every class at SOZO and meeting of A.A. teaches me how to get sober and stay sober.

SOZO and A.A. have given me the tools to use throughout my life to maintain my sobriety.


Our leadership team has over 75 years of combined recovery knowledge and experience.
