What We Do
BREAKING THE BONDS OF
ADDICTION & INCARCERATION
Since 2009, Restoration House has provided probationers,
parolees, and others an opportunity to explore and
address the root causes of their life-controlling addictions
in a safe, supportive residential setting. Our multi-faceted,
peer-led program provides motivated men and women
a proven path from the hopeless bondage of addiction to
productive sobriety and responsible maturity.
Amid the growing crisis of opioid addiction, the TBI
estimates that 80% of Tennessee’s crimes are
drug-related. As the daily cost of housing, an inmate nears
$75, the Tennessee Department of Correction's annual
budget approaches one billion dollars.
Although Restoration House saves Tennessee taxpayers
nearly a million dollars each year, our enduring legacy is
genuine transformation. Recognizing the proven link
between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and
addiction, our program systematically addresses the
impact of ACEs on adults.
Discovering effective ways to handle the ACEs-related
toxic stress that formerly plagued and paralyzed them,
participants who fully embrace our Restoration House
structure routinely experience profound inner healing.
The evidence is positive, measurable, and clearly
discernible in lives that are radically changed!
