Reaching For Recovery

We have lost family members to drug addiction. We understand their struggles and how we struggled to help them. Rehabilitation facilities and group homes offer hope and support but are few and vastly underfunded. Our mission is to provide hope for recovery through financial assistance to existing, and /or new group homes and rehabilitation programs for men and women who struggle daily with drug and /or alcohol addiction. All proceeds will be used to provide care, support, treatment and rehabilitation. Your donation is greatly appreciated

Friends of Recovery planning to open women’s recovery house in Lake County

ust months after opening a men’s recovery house in Willoughby, Friends of Recovery Northeast Ohio is embarking on a new journey. Director Dennis Anthony recently announced that it plans to open a women’s recovery house in Lake County. Anthony said it will be called the Arukah Home for Women. The name Arukah was chosen because it means healing and restoration in Hebrew.

Granting Wishes Event

On Saturday, October 22, a volunteer event was held for Friends of Recovery’s first Recovery house in Lake County, Ohio. In addition to the Northeast Ohio Director of Friends of Recovery and his wife, there were 13 volunteers who came out to donate their time to help with renovations. The name of the house is Tikvah House for Men. Tikvah means “hope” in Hebrew. Those who face addition need a stable environment and in many cases, need to learn life skills to become self sufficient after addiction has wreaked havoc in their lives.
