KEYSER - A New Beginning, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Green Spring, West Virginia, announced Monday the opening of a new program for women recovering from addiction.
Riverside Recovery Home will provide a peaceful, serene, positive living environment for six women committed to maintaining a drug- and alcohol-free life with continued participation in the 12-step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Narcotics Anonymous.
The home will open in mid-July, and applications are now being accepted.
“Applicants will be carefully screened to ensure a good fit for this program”, says executive director JoAnn Burnett, “which will be minimally supervised and allow the women some freedom.”
The residents may stay up to 24 months, provided they continue to follow the organization’s guidelines. Each resident will be expected to work, and pay a program fee.
“They will be self-supporting through their own efforts, while living in a safe, affordable residence that supports them in becoming well established in their recovery and begin new lives,” says program director Cris Shuck.
“SAMHSA has delineated four major dimensions that support a life in recovery:
Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms; Home—having a stable and safe place to live;
Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities; and
Community—having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope” (SAMHSA.gov, Recovery and Recovery Support). A New Beginning incorporates these major dimensions into their programs.
They also protect their clients’ rights to privacy and anonymity, therefore, the location of the residence as well as the identities of the participants are confidential.
A New Beginning Inc. was founded in 2016 by Larry and Cris Shuck of Green Spring, the site of a more comprehensive recovery program for women opening soon.
