Quote from a Practitioner
I have been working in the field of addiction for 20 years. When we find clients who sincerely want to move on with their recovery from detox it is a struggle to find them housing when they have little or no resources. [Dignity has] been a life-saving source of scholarship funding for that first critical week when clients realize they need to move from detox to a transitional living environment that has structure and support. I have seen some of our clients start crying when they realize that someone cares enough to help them with money for that first week until they return to work and re-engage in the recovery community.
