Mr. Wallace started
in the field of sober living in 1992, as a resident
manager of another sober living facility. He enjoyed the
concept of sober living so much that he opened his first
facility called "Soberville" in 1994. Soberville
grew to seven homes with living accommodations for up to
100 men & women. Gary later opened Sober Living Home in
Rancho Palos Verdes, California and
in 2006 U-Stick House in Boise, Idaho for the serious professional who
seeks a sober living environment.
U-Stick House is
based on the philosophy that it is for men who are
serious about recovery. At U-Stick House, we do not
play games with sobriety. We follow a Zero Tolerance
program. All residents must remain clean & sober, follow
the rules of the house, and maintain an active role in
their 12 Step recovery.
U-Stick House, the men are strongly encouraged to find a home
group, get a sponsor and work the concepts of the 12
Steps on a daily basis. U-Stick House is not a
church or religious facility. We follow the 12 Steps as
originally laid out by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1939.
Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, and Al-Anon
just to name a few have adopted these 12 Steps. Each man
is encouraged to find a Higher Power of his
important, we do not let our Brothers in Recovery die!
