One of the greatest stumbling blocks to recovery is the lack of safe, secure, and stable housing for those who are seeking to rebuild their lives. For someone seeking to overcome the effects of addiction, depression, domestic abuse, or economic displacement, the lack of stable living conditions poses a serious threat to their chances for a successful recovery. In the case of those who are seeking to recover from addictions, the lack of available housing often requires them to seek shelter with friends or family members who are still involved in addictive or illegal behaviors. Studies funded by the National Institutes of Health indicate that those individuals are up to 50% more likely to suffer relapse than someone who is able to find shelter in a stable, sober environment. For those who are the victims of domestic abuse, the lack of available housing often prevents them from breaking free of their abusers, and increases the likelihood of serious physical harm or even death.
This situation sets up a cycle of despair, depression, joblessness, homelessness, increasing addiction, hospitalization, and incarceration. There are currently over 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction. Over 22 million more are still suffering from active addiction. Untreated addiction costs our nation’s economy over 350 billion dollars a year. When we choose to support the recovery of those in active addiction, we’re choosing, not only to save money, but to save lives, marriages, families, and businesses as well.
The Morning Star Residential Recovery House is a non-profit, residential recovery facility dedicated to reclaiming lives and providing support services to those whom we serve. The goal of this program is to give hope and a new start to men and women who's lives have been driven off-course by the consequences of their choices, or even through no fault of their own.
The primary purpose of the program is to provide safety, shelter, structure, and support to our clients as they travel the path to recovery and endeavor to reclaim their lives.
