How We Help Those Struggling With Alcohol & Substances
Although alcohol or illegal substances may not be used on, or brought onto New Horizons property, adults with active addictions are admitted. While not a treatment facility, we recognize that many of the chronically homeless who use our shelter are addicted to alcohol or other substances, and we work with them to seek treatment when they are ready.
