Carter House helps alcoholics and substance abusers maintain sobriety by operating a residential facility that provides a structured, safe environment, shelter, and introduction to the 12-Step way of life.
Our mission is to bring male alcoholics and substance abusers into recovery and to assist them in becoming sober, productive members of the community. This process involves providing a safe haven free of drugs and alcohol. We provide support in healthy lifestyles, creating opportunities for meaningful change, providing guidance and advice; and assisting our residents in finding jobs.
We introduce our residents to the principles and practices of the 12-Step program (AA, NA, etc.), 12-Step meetings, 12-Step sponsors, and other role models from the recovery community. All of these provide a supervised transition to sobriety and independence.
