Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Addicts and alcoholics in recovery not only need support, their situation also calls for information, tools, learning techniques, etc. Influential groups procurable to these individuals along with services available for their families provide defense strategies against the ongoing battle of alcohol and other drug addictions. Currently there are not enough treatment avenues in our community pursuable to those suffering from this disease. “Each day brings new opportunities for personal growth, renewal, and transformation to millions of Americans who have chosen to forge a path toward recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol. While addiction can destroy self confidence, family ties, and friendships, recovery can restore the promise of a brighter tomorrow,” (Barack Obama, 31 Aug. 2010.).

The ideal purpose of our residential program is to help more people get sober and stay sober, in addition to involving their families as a support group in their sobriety. We intend on battling recidivism and making sure that offenders no longer commit drug related crimes. We aim on committing to these outcomes through education with groups, meetings, and support available to our community. It is not only about 12-step recovery, it is about starting a new way of life in all areas. Life skills, felony friendly job search strategies, spelling and grammar classes, anger management, relapse prevention, and a peer run council benefits our residents by giving them the opportunity to build themselves up as contributing members of society. We provide tools and structure dedicated to long term sobriety, it ensconces all areas of our program.

We are not only dedicated to becoming better equipped for our residents, we also look for alternative ways to fund new projects and programs. A full time grants coordinator is on staff seeking more opportunities for our facility to achieve its very best. Aside from receiving: an outstanding award for a new roof (over $25,000), from Las Patronas Foundation, $1,000 from the Home Depot Foundation as well as awards from other philanthropic agencies, Tradition One enacts fundraisers, activities, quarterly newsletters, and all other sustaining positions to ensure Tradition One remains fervent to our cause.

Tradition One is in the process of creating a Memorandum of Understanding with a local medical facility so that we are better able to serve our residents with mental health issues and other medical concerns.
