Feb. 22, 2021 – Flanagan believes that the five months he spent living in a sober house on St. Paul’s Summit Avenue cemented his commitment to sobriety. 

“I lived with 14 guys who were between the ages of 20 and 55. I stayed in real structured living between inpatient treatment for 40 days and sober living for five months. The structured living saved my life.” 

This realization that living in community with other people working toward long-term sobriety was key to his survival ultimately led Flanagan, a former private wealth manager, to make major changes in his life. He wanted to help others take the next step toward lifelong sobriety, so he decided to purchase a house and convert it into a sober-living residence.
