“We have seen our son embrace a lifestyle of recovery where he can be vulnerable enough to really want to take charge of his own life..”
Foundation House truly changed the course of our son’s life. Our young adult son Jake chose to attend Foundation House after completing a 30-day inpatient treatment program. At Foundation House, our son was not just a resident but instantly taken in and treated as family, from the moment he first walked through the door. Family that will always be there for him and support him when life takes difficult turns. This quality elevates Foundation House and instills a unique spirit in each and every one of their men.
One of the most special things about Foundation House was that they instantly treated Jake with the trust and respect worthy of a young man trying to take control of his life. Being able to have his cell phone, his computer, and his car at the onset of entering Foundation House was meaningful to Jake as he recognized that Foundation House saw him as a person capable of managing his own life in real-world situations, and not making him earn things that had been a given in his life.
We have been thoroughly impressed with the clinical team at Foundation House, not only for the therapeutic guidance and support offered to Jake, but also the support offered to us as parents as we addressed our own recovery from the effects of addiction on our family. Patrick and the incredibly talented people who work at Foundation House pull no punches when they speak to Jake and the other men in the program. As parents we appreciate and applaud Foundation House’s attention not just to addiction recovery, but on the deeper underlying issues that lead to addiction; such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and poor interpersonal communication.
We have seen our son embrace a lifestyle of recovery where he can be vulnerable enough to really want to take charge of his own life and maintain a course of sobriety, meaningful social interactions with an exceptional sober community, and an overall sense of responsibility and ownership over his own life. As parents, we will forever have immense gratitude for Foundation House.
