Hello, My name is Larry Morris; I am trying to help out an epidemic that is plaguing our society, that goes hand in hand with the addiction epidemic that is over taking our country. We don’t have enough licensed Recovery homes to help out the people that are getting out of Rehab Facilities. How I know about this I am an Addict of 33 years of using with 13 years Clean, and my father who passed on 7 years ago, had 32 years Clean. He was an Addiction Councilor whom helped out several people with their addiction problem and other problems that they had. Well I want to help with a safe place for them to go so they don’t have to go back to the same old neighborhoods without time to learn how to put to work all that they learned in Rehab. There remains no licensed Recovery home for the 9 counties around where I live, but we have 903 Rahab Facilities here in Oklahoma and in surrounding states. When I got out of rehab I had no place to go and no one to help me, and this is because of the damage I caused by my use of drugs and alcohol. I need to help in some way by making sure that the addicts coming out of rehab have a safe place and a structured environment to come and live until they can get on their feet and use the knowledge that they were given in the rehab facility. With your help, I can give the addicts a place to come and be safe instead of going back to doing what they were doing to end up in a rehab to begin with. Everyday several people are getting out of rehab facilities with no safe place to go. With your help we can get a house up and running so that they will have a safe place to go.
