We give our users with sensitive content the option to stay anonymous, but unfortunately some people will use this to write dishonest reviews.

Here are 4 methods to know which reviews are credible:

  1. Responses: Any review can be responded to by any user. This facilitates a public conversation and gives our helpful community of users the ability to call out any unscrupulous behavior.
  2. Personalized user profiles: The most credible reviews will be from users that tell us about themselves in their user profile.
  3. Registered as reviewers: Only those users registered as reviewers can write reviews. This prevents Operators or Guests from writing fake reviews.
  4. Rich content: You can usually tell which reviews are real and which ones are fake simply by reading them. Real reviews share a story, provide detail, and feel genuine. Fake reviews are usually vague and only 1-2 sentences long.


We are continually developing processes and tools to enhance our review process. If you feel a review is fake or needs to be looked at by our Moderators, use the “Report” button on the sober living’s listing.
