The Advocate House is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit recovery residence that has been operating since 2012.
The Mission of the Advocate House is to provide an illicit drug and alcohol free residence for people where they can learn about recovery and life from other people who have walked their path. When a person decides to get off of illicit drugs and become alcohol free, life can be overwhelming. The Advocate House promotes and supports people in getting their GED if needed and full time employment. The Advocate House can assist people in getting any clinical assistance needed. We work a program based on the 12 Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous’ Big Book. We learn as people in recovery how to enjoy life, have a peace of mind, and become a productive member of society.
The mask is the symbol of the broken person in addiction. The Phoenix is the symbol of rebirth.
