Many addicts unfortunately relapse as they go through their journey of recovery. What’s next for that person when treatment is not an option? Those who own recovery houses often have to make the hard decision between helping an individual or keeping the house safe for all. If there are no other options, they inevitably choose the welfare of the other residents and ask the individual to leave.Asking a resident to leave with no place to go can be dangerous for the individaul and sometime deadly. Unfortunately, some addicts overdose when asked to leave a recovery house. Sometimes they die, and sometimes they are taken to a hospital where they are stabilized and then, because of lack of resources, they are released to the streets again where the potentially deadly cycle is started again.
The Redemption Houses will be a safety net for those individuals asked to leave their recovery house. We will take them in, and make sure they have a safe residence and receive the treatment they need. Redemption Houses will be a non-profit run by volunteers working toward getting addicts off the streets and connected with the resources that will help them navigate through their recovery. Our goal is to be a resource for the community, hospitals, treatment centers recovery houses and, most importantly, the addict who is struggling and who needs a safe place to go until the services they need are in place.
