I was a resident at Foundation House for 11 months and it saved my life. It gave me the relationships with my family back and taught me how to develop real friendships with my peers. It is not like so many other programs, where you are stuck in an institutional bubble, unable use any of the skills you are learning and actually grow towards an independent life in recovery. The culture is one where the cool thing to do is be sober, and you are given countless opportunities in activities, athletics and daily life to learn how to have fun again. I was convinced my life was over when I decided to get sober, and FH showed me otherwise. The clinicians are among the best, and most caring that I have ever been around. They don’t just sit in their office and wait to see you for an hour a week. They are out at activities, up at the ranch, and support you in the community. The alumni staff who run the activities were awesome and showed me that things do get better. Overall, Foundation House is an amazing place because it is not designed to be a holding pattern or another institution built upon false promises, negative culture and shame. It was the best place in the world for me to find recovery, connection and a new way of life. The people who work there, and the guys in the program saved my life.

Foundation House is a secondary treatment center/sober living house I attended after going through 60 days at Cirque Lodge. I took all the tools I learned to stay sober from Cirque Lodge to Foundation House. It was at FH how I truly learned to be happy joyous and free. Through the help of attentive, caring, and understanding staff, I was able to push through my fears and actually live life on life’s terms. I can’t rave enough about FH. After an 8 month stay, I got the opportunity to stay around the community and work here. My year working here has given me so many gifts and memories that I will cherish forever.

This extended care sober living facility was the piece of the puzzle that had been missing. I went to two treatment facilities and returned back home both times and relapsed nearly right away. This last time I went away to Maine from NYC and began anew. i was living with a bunch of sober guys who were like-minded for the most part and bought right in to the culture that was pervasive here. Guys were getting well, getting sponsors, going to meetings, working AA 12 steps, providing service both in AA and our community, we were engaged in fun activities like tennis, golf, football, kayaking, yoga, acupuncture, going to the beach, playing golf and football to name a few.

Had an excellent and unparalleled experience while both attending and being an employee of the program. Those in attendance are given every opportunity imaginable to make positive change in their lives.
