We are currently in search of a building to open a men's recovery residence. Clients will live on-premises and work during the daytime (at staff approved job sites) and are expected to attend classes in the evenings. They will learn the life and job skills necessary to maintain a successful sober life.

The Crossings Addiction Services, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation. It was formed out of a desire to help people break the chains of addictions, and to thrive in recovery for the rest of their lives. It isn't enough to just work the steps and do the classes. It is about helping them learn to love themselves and give them hope for a new life, then giving them the skills necessary to become productive members of the community and restore their lives. You take you wherever you go, so it is important that clients learn to live and work in their own communities.
