We were established in 2010 as a haven for hope and light for those suffering from addictions and a unique and safe place where the needy addicts can go to receive support and help.
Our shelter helps fight addiction and other self-destructive behaviors through the increase of level of consciousness creating reality both internally and externally, and helping the addicts to stay focused on returning to be a productive member of society.
We are a clinic where our members can help channel their emotions so they can then go out and face the world with a civic conscience, realizing what is good and what is bad. One of our important values is to believe in family unity as the main foundation of the individual so they can maintain, sustain and evaluate for themselves and know they have a 24/7 support system.
If our incoming addicts are in need of physical and/or psychological help, they are provided with evaluations so we can better help them.
We realize that those in need of help do not always have the pesos required to enter the shelter, so we have established a working program where they can pay when they are able to get enough recovery to go out and work at whatever occupation they may have had in the past, or we give encouragement and help in creating a new way to establish this goal.
We help them in every way to repay the entry fee, not only because we need it to keep our doors open, but because it gives them a new pride to know that they are back in a world of reality and are handling their responsibilities.
Those that arrive to our shelter without resources realize that the doors are always open and we are there to help with their obsessions, pain and anxiety and we welcome them with open arms in the hope that they can obtain peace after addiction.
We encourage our members to start with a short-term goal, which would be staying sober, finding a job and changing their focus.
We do not receive government assistance and rely on contributions from our generous benefactors, such as Mr. Guillermo Wulff, and hope to have others that wish to become involved.
In the last couple years, we have changed our shelter from just four bare walls, where incoming members slept on the floor, to comfortable beds with mattresses and linens - we now even have a roof.
We owe a great amount of praise to our recovering members who constantly work with us in improving our environment and it is rewarding to see the glow of pride on their faces associated with their efforts.
We want to be an example for those addicts in recovery and let them realize that they can change their life when they don't know how to do it by themselves.
We want the addicts out there to know that there is a solution and we can help them. We are the first door, a way out, an alternative, and a way to stop their self-destruction.
It has been a lot of work but everything is going better and the clinic is helping a lot of people to be sane and to be free of drugs and alcohol.
Being a Partner for Change can have a different meaning and application to each of us depending on our role, our location, our clients, our relationships. But no matter where you are or who you are, you can be a Partner for Change. Click here to get started today.
