It's incredibly humbling... surreal even, to think back to when we opened our first sober house in St. Petersburg, and to see all the men, families, and friends that have been touched by our community. We love you all! Thank you for your honest feedback.

This place has been an amazing experience for me. The owners and staff care about the residents and help them learn how to live a positive and productive life. After countless relapses I made the decision to come to Real Recovery Tampa and the accountability and friends I've made while living here has made all the difference. This place is newly renovated and the living conditions are fantastic. Getting involved in a 12 step program and attending meetings on a regular basis has helped me grow to be a better person. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay sober and make a positive change in their life.

This place has been an amazing experience. I currently stay here at real recovery and I must say it includes everything you could ask for in a sober living facility. From nightly meetings and plenty of fellow peers to speak with, as well as firm yet understanding leader ship. If you are looking for a safe space to call home and get your life on the right track then this is the place for you.. 10/10 would recommend to others in need.

As a parent of an adult son who was taking the next step in recovery, Real Recovery really showed up for the support, structure and fellowship needed to help our son move forward. I recommend you visit and meet some of the residents to know you are not alone in your path towards sobriety!

I have struggled for many years with a debilitating case of untreated alcoholism , until I made the life changing decision to come to Real Recovery St.Pete. With the support of staff, and residents alike, I am still sober sober 13 months later. I can not say enough good things about this place! Thank you Real Recovery!

I honestly wouldn't consider this residency a halfway house. It's much too clean, the appliances and units are brand new. The furnishings are upheld and cared for. The property itself is maintained multiple times a week. The staff and owners lookout for not just the resident's well-being but their best interests as well. And the property maintains a safe place for men of all afflictions to recover in a safe and sober environment. I would highly recommend this for anyone serious about their recovery.

Real Recovery is the best choice in all regards. Their facilities are amazing, the amount of work and money the owner puts into his properties is unmatched. The programs they have are also the best. House managers are also super involved, go to the same meetings and know what is going on with the clients.

This place has saved me from myself. I am so grateful to be here and staying clean with the help of John and the rest of the community. I, like most addicts, needed a stable environment and accountability and I am happily clean for the longest amount of time I ever have been.

I am currently a resident at Real Recovery in North Tampa. The apartments at the facility have all been remodeled and are like new. The property is really clean and I have access to all the amenities as well as a pool table, a workout gym, a library, a computer room, and an air hockey table. The staff is very helpful and supportive and the residents are all like one big Family. I’m glad I found this place and would not be where I am today had I not. Lastly, if you’re not looking for a better way of life this is probably not the place for you.

I recently moved into Real Recovery and I have been very impressed! I came from a sober living situation in St. Pete but moved back home to Bradenton. If you are looking for a clean, sober living environment - this is it! Mark is a very open and relatable person to talk to. The men here are open, eager to help, and make you feel welcome.

My 21 yr. old son came there after rehab in Tampa He was from out of state and knew no one.

He has had nothing, but a most positive experience!

His words ”I’ve met many life long friends”.

Thank God he had the opportunity and I know it’s helped him and made all the difference in his journey.

He loves the area and it’s been life changing for him.

With the meetings and good atmosphere and awesome influences he’s done great in his recovery.

Absolutely the right choice for him.

I recommend this and as a Mother and am so very thankful. 💙

Real Recovery is the real deal. Everyone there has the same goals; stay sober, support those around you, attend meetings, follow the 12 steps, and lead a clean life. If your goals are not consistent with these principles do not consider Real Recovery as an option. The place is clean and was recently updated; giant TVs in every room and all the amenities of home. If you are serious in your sobriety this place is for you. JJ and Patrick are the best and will call you out if you try to fake it to make it. I highly recommend Real Recovery.
