Recovery Community

At the center of our programs is a zero barrier Recovery Community, with services wrapped around to support members of our unhoused community in ongoing recovery from the disease of substance use disorder(s). Participation in wrap around services is not a requirement to participating in Recovery Community.

We believe that people living with the disease of addiction are faced with pain every day. Pain from not having the drug and experiencing withdrawals, pain due to the activities done to acquire the drug, pain from the reaction and responses towards them from family and community, pain from trauma that may have occurred earlier in life and at minimal, trauma that has occurred while in active use of substances. Due to this pain, relationships with family, friends and community has been fractured. A person finds themselves often feeling hopeless and disconnected. Our goal is to create a community that helps to heal this pain and reconnect with community.

In building a Recovery Community based on the core values of respect, kindness, compassion, empathy, and inclusivity, our community members can reconnect, and begin to feel hopeful that life can be better. That they can be better. This is at the heart of all of the work that we do at Compassionate Addiction Treatment.

This is a free service provided to our community members who are experiencing living unhoused so that they have access to a safe recovery space throughout each weekday.

Zero barrier supportive employment and housing case management is provided by Certified Peer Counselors who are experts at navigating within local systems to identify employment and housing opportunities. Participants identify their employment and housing goals, and work as a team with CAT's housing and employment specialists to reach their individual goals. Getting a replacement ID, SS card, birth certificate, creating a resume, practicing interviewing skills, identifying places to shower and do self-care to prepare for work, and volunteer opportunities to increase self-esteem and work place skills are among the many things that can be addressed.
