Active Recovery Foundation, Inc.


Active Recovery Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to creating a foundation for continued growth and recovery for adults who are bettering themselves after addiction. Our goal is to support and develop Recovery Residences for persons affected by substance abuse. The foundation is also committed to addressing the stigma associated with alcoholism and drug addiction through coordination and collaboration in providing information to the community regarding this disease.

A variety of studies showed that halfway houses improve treatment outcome (Braucht, Reichardt, Geissler, & Bormann, 1995; Hitchcock, Stainback, & Roque, 1995; Milby, Schumacher, Wallace, Freedman & Vuchinich, 2005; Schinka, Francis, Hughes, LaLone, & Flynn, 1998).

Many individuals attempting to abstain from alcohol and drugs do not have access to appropriate housing that supports sustained recovery. Expanding sober living is essential if we are to better meet the housing needs of persons suffering from alcohol and drug disorders.

The Active Recovery Foundation owns a home in the South Highland neighborhood and partners with Oxford House to provide a recovery residence that offers sober living for individuals in recovery. The Foundation is responsible for providing materials and supplies for repair, appliances and furniture as needed, and other needed items to support the residents. The Foundation realizes that individuals in recovery desperately need a supportive home environment, along with job readiness skills and basic life skills necessary to continue their progressive growth in society.

In addition, donations are also utilized to develop publications, support groups, meetings, workshops and other activities aimed at education and understanding regarding recovery.
