NEW “SOBER FRESH STARTS” PROGRAM
We offer sober fresh start 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.
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.

A PATH TO FINDING HOPE IN RECOVERY (Our original scholarship program)
1. By providing funds for quality addiction treatment to those affected by the disease who can’t afford it, but are committed to their recovery. We offer treatment scholarships based on need.
2. By providing financial support for those who want to move into sober living after completing treatment (see above). We will help with the rent for the first month or longer until employment is found by the resident.
3. By providing positive emotional support and education for family members affected by the disease through our family program.
4. A family member or friend of the scholarship recipient must attend our family program as a condition of receiving a scholarship from us.
An application must be submitted for each of the financial support services, including medical detox, treatment, sober living, and addiction counseling. Each application will be evaluated by our staff based on need and availability of the funds.

It is our hope this path to recovery will help addicts and their families. Cody loved helping other addicts and these goals are in line with what he would have wanted us to do in honoring his short life, which involved him losing his heartbreaking battle with addiction.
