We have witnessed and experienced the immense beauty that comes with healing your way through to the other side. This intimate understanding is deeply rooted in our magnetic pull to serve others transitioning into a life of lasting recovery.

New Program for the families who are desperate to find help for their loved ones.

Introducing: The Early Recovery Program

Early recovery is messy. It isn't always clear what to do and how to do it. I know personally I was confused, scared, I didn't know who to turn to, how to find answers to the so many questions I had. I stumbled, made bad choices, and I had no idea how to get through them.

There were emotions I didn't understand, my brain felt like it was attacking itself, and I felt so lost and alone.

Just entering into recovery can feel overwhelming. I think back to what I wish I had in the beginning which was more information about what to expect and to not feel so alone but I didn't know how to get that, or even know how to ask for it. So I created this program with the intention to help people find their way through the darkness of early recovery.
