Scranton, Pennsylvania, October 23, 2019- Together with colleagues, providers, educators, judges, law enforcement, and government officials from both Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties, the Clear Brook Foundation celebrated the official grand opening of two new Recovery Connect Centers located in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Recovery Connect provides individuals and families experiencing the devastating effects of drug and alcohol addiction with guidance, confidential assessments, and referrals to the appropriate level of care. Funded through the 2018 sale of Clearbrook Manor and a generous grant from the AllOne Foundation, all services provided to the community through Recovery Connect are free of charge.
“It is no secret that the opioid crisis is severely impacting families in Northeastern Pennsylvania who often don’t know where to turn. Through Recovery Connect, the Clear Brook Foundation gives families immediate access to multiple resources needed to get their loved ones help,” said Conrad Falvello, Esq, Chairman of the Board.
For over 21 years, the Clear Brook Foundation has impacted the lives of over 100,000 individuals and families affected by drug and alcohol addiction by providing assistance for those who could not afford drug and alcohol treatment, delivering community education throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania, and supporting initiatives that align with the foundation’s values.
The opening of two Recovery Connect Centers carries on the Clear Brook Foundation’s legacy of advocacy by offering immediate assistance, defined direction, and supported solutions to all who are in need of help.
In addition to Recovery Connect, the Clear Brook Foundation continues to serve the community with its Families Helping Families program that provides attendees across seven counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania with an opportunity to learn about drug and alcohol addiction from trained professionals and interact with others who are experiencing the effects of addiction in their own families.
The Clear Brook Foundation is also home of “The Hall” which offers meeting space free of charge to AA, Alanon, and other self-help groups. Currently there are over 18 weekly 12-step meetings held in the Scranton space each week.
