NEW PROGRAM: SOBER FRESH STARTS!

Sober living facilities provide a safe, structured, healthy living environment for men and women to continue to work on what they have learned in treatment and build upon their sobriety while offering much needed peer support.

Recovery coaches help individuals affected by substance use disorder by providing guidance and direction on the journey to recovery. They develop and implement a recovery plan, ensure a strong support system is in place as well as making sure each person is using all the recovery tools available to best reach their goals.

Addiction acupuncture is becoming a complementary treatment in addiction recovery programs. Auricular or ear acupuncture is a popular form of this treatment that involves acupuncture at various points on the skin of the external ear to help ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings.

Our family program helps family members gain a deeper understanding of addiction and attain greater confidence in assisting loved ones by developing new tools, resources and support systems.

We offer sober fresh starts scholarships, which include sober living rent, recovery coaching, acupuncture, and support for family members.  We want to support those with substance use disorders with positive steps toward living a substance-free life.  Candidates are given a chance for a fresh start and transition into their new sober live in a safe and successful way without the financial burden of paying rent right after treatment.  Our goal is to support individuals and their families on their path to recovery and a new healthy, lifestyle.
