Located in the greater Chicago area, our sobriety houses provide transitional housing, spiritual counsel, lifestyle support, and accountability for men getting free from incarceration and/or substance addiction. Dr. James MacDonald’s inspiration for Act Like Men Sobriety Houses is drawn from Matthew 25:40 and Jesus’ promise “in that you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”

…When There’s Nowhere to Look But Up | Our first ALM Sobriety House and the location of our headquarters is affectionately known as Rock Bottom. Additional ALM Houses are also located in greater Chicagoland – apply for residency here.
On Saturdays throughout the summer, Pastor James preaches at our Rock Bottom headquarters. In addition, he and our sobriety ministry leaders spend themselves building into the men who reside in our ALM Houses, and those who have graduated but still desire to be part of our ministry family.
A new season of in-person Bible study is underway! All adults are welcome.
To equip as many men as possible with this in depth, 40-day teaching, Pastor James is giving away his Act Like Men book for the cost of shipping + a nominal handling fee.
