The Redemption House is a place for people in recovery to go when they need a place to restart their journey.
Unfortunately, many people with substance abuse disorders relapse as they go through their journey of recovery. Those of us who own recovery houses sometimes have to make hard decisions, having to do what’s best for the safety of the house. This usually means that the person who has relapsed must leave. But what does a person do when treatment is not an immediate option?
Kicking someone out with no place to go can be disastrous and sometimes deadly. Some of us end up overdosing when we are asked to leave the recovery house. Another scenario that happens a lot is that the person will overdose and go to an emergency room, where he or she will be stabilized and then released back out to the streets, again with nowhere to go. Hospitals don’t have enough resources to handle the increasing number of people with substance abuse disorders who overdose, and often they do not know how to advise those who truly want to go to treatment, so they give them a list of numbers, some of which might even be outdated, or they tell them to call 211 after they are released back to the streets.
The Redemption House is a bridge to connect people who have relapsed with the resources they need to continue their journey toward recovery. The Redemption House is a non-profit run by volunteers working to keep people off the streets and connect them with resources to help them navigate toward recovery. Our primary purpose is to provide resources for the community, for hospitals, for treatment centers, for recovery houses, and, most importantly, to provide a safe place for the person who is recovering to stay so they can remain clean and sober while waiting the long term services they need.
Welcome to the Redemption House. We are glad you're here! What we offer here is a fresh start to those who are still sick and suffering or who may be coming off a relapse. The beauty of this house is that we are all about addicts helping addicts. We offer 24/7 peer to peer support, gratitude and wrap-up groups as well as multiple 12-step recovery meetings.
We bring in recovery coaches to help our clients who are truly seeking refuge. Outside speakers from our sober community visit the house every night to bring experience, strength and hope. We also lay a foundation down for our clients to continue the next steps in their journey as we set up sober house placement, intensive outpatient as well as inpatient placement.
At The Redemption House. We will not leave an addict on the streets. We are firm believers of offering all of our clients a chance to join a sober community. With one on one tailored case management, Medically Assisted Treatment, and medication management, no matter where you are on your journey you have the promise of a stable recovery, should you want to do the work.
This is a safe environment where we provide all this and more. We provide three meals a day, bedding, clothing and hygiene products to those who can not provide these items for themselves.
Keeping up with client safety and education, we make sure both our staff and clients are trained on NARCAN administration. The sad reality is that many people with opiate abuse disorder overdose and die. NARCAN is a life saving drug that should always be kept around to save someone from this horrid fate.
