Check out a short video from the fireworks at the Eastern Promenade in Portland last night – this city just such a great job creating a family atmosphere for this summer holiday. Enjoy!
Check out the video from our 10 week FoxHole Challenge course! This was a really cool experience. The residents and staff involved came together in a way that can only be brought about by struggling through a difficult task as a group. We hope you enjoy the video, and we look forward to the next edition of the FoxHole Challenge!
Foundation House took its house managers and community leaders ice climbing at the Amphitheater wall at Grafton Notch. We hiked 40 minutes through the Maine backcountry to the frozen wall where four different routes ranging in difficulty from moderate to hard mixed climbs waited for us. Every guy was able to push himself beyond his comfort zone and realize that he can accomplish more than he thought possible. A full day spent in the beautiful surrounding Maine wilderness gave the guys a chance to pause and reflect on how far they have come and the rewards that sobriety can provide both internally and externally. Now folks, that’s what we here at Foundation House call a Ropes Course!
In summer 2014, our International Travel Expedition featuring residents, alumni & staff visited a Tanzania Coffee Farm, summited Mount Kilimanjaro and enjoyed a Serengeti Safari. We traced the origin of the coffee bean where man began, and climbed the world’s tallest free-standing mountain.
The greatest accomplishment we can achieve is providing the environment for our residents to not only gain a life of sobriety but a feeling of higher purpose in their own life. Mike Fisher is a profound example of this kind of accomplishment. Mike joined the FoxHole a little over 3 years ago and after a successful stay joined our alumni community in Portland as an active and valuable member. Mike is currently traveling the country, catching a fish on a fly rod in all 50 states and spreading his message of hope and inspiration at treatment centers across the nation. This video tells his inspirational story.
We believe in a strong holistic focus in early recovery – combining a variety of therapies such as mind-body therapies, yoga, meditation, acupuncture healthy nutrition, exercise, creative arts therapies and more. Every week our residents are engaged in these activities in an attempt to “slow down” the thought process and find awareness physically, emotionally and spiritually.
