One of the key services we provide is transportation. We travel approximately 1,500 miles per week in our small passenger van helping people get to detox, treatment as well as other appointments and service events.
We know the importance of ‘meeting a person where they’re at’- not only in their recovery readiness but physically as well. A lack of transportation shouldn’t be an obstacle to recovery but surprisingly, it can be. When a person is ready to get help, we know that every minute counts. That’s where CTC helps fill the gap. For a person who decides to take a first step toward his/her recovery, the time between making that decision and getting to detox is most often filled with immense anxiety. Being able to talk to an experienced recovery peer professional like Mike, our CTC president, who knows the detox and treatment process and providers in the areas we serve is a great help as he not only picks up the person but helps them through the process, giving viable encouragement that a person with addiction understands, and many times, stays with them through the process of getting admitted so they aren’t alone.
1,500 miles a week is a lot of travel and we can’t control gas prices!
The ability of a person to enter sober living following treatment or in early recovery exponentially increases the ability to remain on a recovery path and continue their recovery journey. Helping people locate and secure sober living accommodations is one of CTC’s great passions- because we know how important it is to a person’s recovery.
The current, average cost for a person in sober living is approximately $500 per week.
We provide scholarships for sober living to give people a sure footing as they begin their recovery. Our scholarships are based on the generous donations of our supporters.
Addiction steals everything from a person- including their dignity. Our outreach program to provide basic needs in the way of clothing and hygiene packs filled with basic hygiene products is geared to help:
- Those just starting their recovery journey. Having the basic necessities in our hygiene packs gives back dignity to a person more than we can explain!
- Those who are homeless. Our hygiene kits provided to the homeless people we meet allows us to help them know they haven’t been forgotten, allows us to invite them to connection with recovery because CTC holds strongly to our belief that as long as a person is breathing, they can attain recovery.
Nick's Place is our men's recovery interim housing.
In our goal to fill the gaps that often come as roadblocks to recovery, and knowing that a key element to sustaining early recovery is the ability to consistently remain in
a recovery community, we opened Nick's Place.
Nick's Place offers temporary sober housing for men who are already started in their recovery journey and have a period of sobriety but may be awaiting entrance to treatment following detox completion or awaiting entrance to an established sober living house following detox or treatment.
Cost is based on income and there are a limited number of free scholarships are available.
Call 425-328-8122 for an initial entrance interview.
