MARY LOU RODGERS founder | operator
Mary Lou found her path to lasting sobriety through a sober living house.
An adopted child, Mary Lou struggled with abandonment her entire life. She didn’t realize that her abandonment issue, along with the Irish “gene” for alcoholism, would turn her periodic and binge drinking eventually into a diagnosis of alcoholism.
The eldest of six adopted children, Mary Lou was raised in a non-traditional family and lived all over the US & Venezuela. In her early career Mary Lou worked professionally in the entertainment industry as a talent agent and as a Casting Director. After starting a family, materialism became her measuring stick of a successful life. A huge estate, yachts, multiple properties and vacations all over the world were the byproducts of her success - another byproduct was heavy drinking. Eventually this led to multiple rehab stints, therapy, small amounts of time of sobriety only to relapse and relapse again.
Her sobriety date is July 18, 2010 and she attributes the journey of her recovery this last time to her experience in sober living. Mary Lou attended the Navy Drug & Alcohol Counselor School for her CDAC certification. A near death experience in 2014 caused her to get serious about her passion, which is helping other women find their way to a new life, a life beyond their wildest dreams!
