FRESH START is a nonprofit Transitional Supportive Housing program for people recovering from substance abuse addiction. Our goal is to provide (beginning in the summer of 2009), in the mid-shore area, a stable housing environment complemented by aggressive case management to assist the residents in achieving sobriety, independence and self-sufficiency with enhanced possibilities for future success.
Individuals in the early stage of substance abuse recovery often encounter multiple problems which may impede their efforts to remain clean and sober. In addition to the addiction itself, there are often housing, employment, legal, and family problems.
Support in areas such as housing, jobs, and appropriate emotional and social skills contributes to a greater likelihood that the recovering individual will remain clean and sober over the long term. The Fresh Start Program provides the Mid-shore area with a transitional supportive housing program for persons who have completed a drug and/or alcohol treatment program.
