To provide a safe, supportive, and substance free environment for students in recovery who wish to maintain long term sobriety, continue their education, and learn the skills necessary to be positive and productive members of society.
Some students who finish a traditional inpatient treatment program need additional long term treatment to solidify and maintain their sobriety. Some are ready to return to their original college after treatment. And then there are those who fall in between these options. That’s where HERO House comes into play. The main purpose behind HERO House is to create a safe and supportive environment for college students who have completed treatment, are not quite ready to return to their original campus, but have a desire to maintain their sobriety and continue their education.
