"Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.” — Napoleon Hill

As a person in long-term recovery and the Executive Director/Founder of STAND, Incorporated, desire turned my story into one of success.

Testimonials

Cletis B.

I have been with Stand Inc. for two months now, and in that time I have learned how to maintain a healthier lifestyle. I am truly grateful that this program is open considering the pandemic. I am also grateful for meeting new people who are serious about maintaining their recovery mentally, physically, and spiritually. Stand Inc. has changed my perception in life positively.

Carrey F.

Stand Inc. has paved the way for me and has given me two chances and I am grateful. I now value my integrity, and self-esteem. Stand Inc. is an exceptional program, and God truly has his hand in it. I am thankful from the bottom of my heart that this program has helped me be the man God intended me to be.

Kerry G.

This program has been a God send. The people here are very passionate about what they do. I have never met a group of people that really want to see me achieve whatever goals I have set for myself. They are very knowledgeable and courteous. I will never forget my first day here. I was reminded about where I had come from and encouraged that I didn’t have to “Return”.
