North Country Freedom Homes
provides community residential services to recovering individuals to promote and maintain abstinence from alcohol, other mood-altering drugs and substances.
'North Country Freedom Homes (NCFH) Community Residential Service (CRS) builds upon the work done during inpatient treatment. Becoming abstinent and completing inpatient treatment is a foundation for the work required to continue the recovery process. Unfortunately this rather short period of time and the amount of work that can be done isnt long enough for many individuals and they relapse. Providing a safe, supportive atmosphere to continue and guide the work started in inpatient treatment is what NCFH does. It is a fact that the longer an individual is actively engaged in their addiction treatment the more likely they will continue with the recovery process once formal treatment has completed. We believe that the more work that is done during this period also increases the chance of long term recovery and improvement in the individual's quality of life. There is additional information in the various sections of the website.
A brief introduction
North Country Freedom Homes, a not-for-profit corporation certified by the NYS Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), provides whole person care to male individuals seriously debilitated by chemical dependency. We recognize chemical dependency as a chronic and primary disease. If left untreated, it is both progressive and predictable in its devastation. We believe that, with proper diagnosis and treatment, chemical dependency can be permanently arrested.
Although not affiliated with Smart Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or other 12-Step Programs, we encourage active participation. We believe that active participation in and the support offered by these programs is a vital part of the recovery process. We will provide transportation as often as possible for those wishing to attend 12-Step programs. To assist us in planning for effective use of these resources we ask that residents sign up for 12 Step meetings a week in advance.
Various components of our program address basic physiological needs, increase knowledge about alcohol and other substances, as well as teach the skills necessary to maintain an alcohol/drug free lifestyle. Our overall goal is to provide a program and atmosphere that will help develop the insights, attitudes, skills and knowledge necessary to continue growth in recovery regardless of the problem substance.
