Like you, I have vast experience in dealing with addiction and recovery. I'm not actually an addict myself but both of my children are in recovery. I'm a single mother who dealt with the trials and tribulations of their ongoing addiction for many years, a revolving door of rehabs and treatment, court dates and hospital stays. The never-ending worry, sleepless nights and way too many tears. Trust me- I really do understand.
After my sons umpteenth rehab we decided to try a recovery house. The goal being to get him away from the same people, places, and things so that he could concentrate on learning to live again without the negative influences that kept taking him down.
What we found was that the concept of sober living made a lot of sense. We also found that the majority of the recovery houses in our area were in bad neighborhoods, with little supervision, and questionable standards. Looking at the subpar living environment, I thought that there had to be a better option. But there wasn't... or at least we couldn't afford it.
Dominate Today Recovery Living is a family run business which was inspired by a desperate need for a quality living environment for recovering addicts in Montgomery County. My vision was not to open a recovery house - but an actual home where people would feel comfortable, supported, and cared for while they battle to overcome their addiction.
We opened our first sober living home in September of 2017 and due to an overwhelming need our second home just a few months later. We currently operate 2 men's and 2 women's houses in Pottstown, PA. Our plan is to continue expanding our services throughout the tri-state area.
Our goal is to help others Dominate their Recovery so that they can live a long and productive life. Families should feel comfortable knowing that their loved one is in a safe and stable environment surrounded by people that understand and support their recovery.
