“I want to create the type of environment I wish I had when I was a college student in early recovery”
Most college students completing a treatment program need additional support. While there are many long-term treatment facilities available, very few allow students to continue their education as part of their recovery process. The HERO House is specifically designed for college students who have completed an inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment program, but are not ready to return to their primary college environment.
