Many individuals who enter The Launch Pad program have acknowledged that their lives are in complete disarray. It’s the result of a life run on self-will by an individual who has relied on drugs and/or alcohol to find relief. The problem is that rarely do these substances offer such a relief. Addicts may chase those feelings until their life has spiraled into chaos. Creating structure in that chaos is an important part of returning to a positive way of life that doesn’t perpetuate self-destruction.
The Launch Pad system provides a structured living alternative complemented by an array of other services. Like traditional recovery residence living, The Launch Pad homes are supportive of 12-step recovery. Through house meetings, house customs and attendance in a program of the individual’s choice, ideas like personal-inventory, self-support and service become new lifestyles. The most important difference between The Launch Pad and traditional halfway houses are the Recovery Coaches.
