Stephan is a native Canadian, who moved to Texas after attending treatment in 2011. Stephan has many years of personal recovery under his belt. Steph lives outside of Dallas with his wife and three beautiful girls.
Austin is a fun loving person in long-term recovery, who loves to spend time helping others in recovery. In his free time, Austin enjoys to make music, dance with his friends, and lead his cult for alien worship.
In addition to his passion for the recovery program that saved his life, Shook brings a charismatic management style that he has used to manage teams in the residential treatment setting. He also has experience running the alumni program for a successful outpatient (IOP) and as a case-manager for a transitional-living facility nearby. Shook brings this energy to the RD houses, meeting weekly with our live-in house manager/assistant managers while detailing the progress of our residents and sending regular updates to families and helping professionals involved in the resident’s treatment.
Having gone through treatment near Waco, TX, and sober living in Kerrville, TX, Shook has been in the same shoes as a new resident is walking into our homes. Now in long-term recovery himself, Shook is beyond excited to provide the same desperately needed structure to individuals with a desire to change their lives. “We can recover,” says Shook “if we can practice the spiritual disciplines that have been proven to work for millions just like us. Real Deal Sober Living is a place where the foundation is laid for this lifelong journey that we commit to daily. From each morning at our house meditation to the weekly community meetings, and the required 12-step groups and IOP/therapy sessions we encourage all residents to attend, we are on this journey together. You are never alone in this Fellowship. Join us.
