Who we serve

Our services are open to any individual in recovery from addiction who have the drive to become upstanding and respected members of our community. We value the potential in each and every one of our clients and have programs in place to meet their individual needs. The key is to break the cycle of addiction and help our clients return to lives as the moral and principled individuals they once were.

Ridge House has facilities for both women and men recovering and  re-entering the community. We provide our clients with the skills they need to get back on their feet, so that they leave Ridge House with a sense of pride in both themselves and their community.

Veterans are another specialty for the Ridge House. We have clients who were once fighting not only for their own freedom, but for that of our country, and who now find themselves re-joining the community without knowing how to be free. Our specialized services provide veterans with the tools they need to get their freedom back.
