The image that most people have of a homeless person is of someone that is drunk or high on drugs. Although, not everyone who is homeless has an addiction issue, there is a large amount of people who are homeless that have struggled with alcohol and drugs. Although homeless people are not the only people who abuse substances, you probable have a neighbor who lives in a house on your street that has an addiction; the difference is that someone who is homeless has their addiction play out in public for all to see.
This is why PiN offers recovery groups. PiN offers a 12-step recovery program, facilitated with curriculum from Recovery for Life. Most of the time, an alcohol or drug issue is only a symptom of a deeper issue; however, until you deal with the substance abuse issue you will not be able to get help for the deeper issues.
PIN Currently offers two recovery groups each week; however, we are hoping to expand our groups to seven days a week starting in 2015. If you would like to make a donation to PIN to help us expand our recovery groups, it would make a huge difference in an individual’s life. You can make a donation to help us expand our recovery groups by visiting our Donate Page.
