Providing Housing Since 2019
We help the person seek more than just “clean and sober” lifestyle.
We use the Whole Person recovery approach:
Oftentimes, addiction can stem from many different areas of someone’s life, such as mental health issues, trauma, physical or emotional pain, or other daily stresses that may be occurring. Treating the whole person can dig into those underlying issues and fix the root of the problem.
BCS has a heart for ensuring the success of individuals with disabilities, those in recovery, and veterans. One of our programs has flourished into an opportunity to help all three of these populations. Freedom House is an extension of BCS that offers housing, rehabilitation, and focused redirection for individuals who struggle with recovery and/or are coming from the judicial system. Many of our participants are veterans and may identify with various types of disabilities.
Our team assists men, women, and veterans in identifying personal goals relating to education, employment, health, entitled benefits, spirituality, relationships, and community participation. At Freedom House, they learn the skills to find freedom in their recovery struggles, how to get and keep a job, and how to live and do life in a community. We are so excited to currently offer this service in Bradenton, Florida. Program fees are based on income.
Amenities listed below are provided to program participants:
Three Bedroom Family Style Homes
Training, Education, Financial Management and Employment Assistance
Basic utilities paid
Laundry appliances on-site
Substance Recovery Counseling Assistance
Each home has a housing mentor
We believe in a therapeutic community model that promotes whole wellness. All current “in good standing” participants receive a membership to Crunch fitness. Your time with Crunch can also be spent with Aqua Massage.
