Program Connects Locals to Addiction Treatment Resources
A nonprofit organization has unveiled a new program designed to help people in addiction recovery.
The volunteer-run organization, a Safe Harbor Home Inc., opened in 2008 to provide housing for individuals who were victims of domestic abuse and has since expanded its services to help other demographics.
Those who qualify for the program are expected to obtain a peer recovery sponsor, attend 12-step program meetings and obtain employment during their stay. Applicants must have been sober for 28 days prior to entering.
The organization has set aside two houses, one for men and one for women, that can each accommodate up to six people. For people who cannot entirely afford the program, the nonprofit can discuss other payment options with them.
A Safe Harbor Home will assist clients in connecting with other local aftercare, educational and vocational services. Participants can stay in the program for up to six months.
