These are testimonials of men who stayed in The Home Center for some time a benefited from our services. See what they say about us in their own words.
My name is Crawford Conrad, I'm 22 years old, and I am a person in long term recovery from the disease of addiction.
I was one of the first 3 residents ever to stay at the HOMEcenter for men. During my journey in recovery, I've stayed in 3 Recovery houses, and this is the only one I've stayed at that feels like a Recovery HOME.
I came into the house before we even had furniture, and was able to watch the home grow and prosper and by the time I moved on and got my own place, the house was flourishing.
Justin Blackburn takes in men of all ages with all different stories and offers them a chance that not many other house operators would. It is plain to see that his mission is not about profit, but about helping people.
During my stay at HOMEcenter, I was able to mend my relationship with my daughter, pick up 2 years clean, and also move on to living at a place of my own for the first time in my entire life. None of this would have been possible without the love and support received from not only Justin, but from the men he housed.
Speaking not only for myself, I've seen men come into the house completely broken and have an entirely new lease on life within a few months.
This type of environment is tailor-made for men at all points in recovery, whether they're fresh off of the streets or have some experience and are just looking for a chill community environment.
I attribute much of my success in recovery to my stay here, and hope to see the same happen for any men seeking recovery in the Asheville area.
