Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) Expands Transitional housing for Women with Children in Auburn

May 26, 2016

Opening July 2016

Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) is pleased to announce the opening of our newest transitional home in Auburn for women and children. CoRR’s Clean And Sober Transitional Living Environment (CASTLE)s provide safe supportive housing to women and children, and men, as they recover from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

This will be CoRR’s ninth home throughout Placer and Nevada County, following openings of homes for single men and single women recently in Auburn.  The newest home will complement CoRR’s Auburn Campus, which also offers residential treatment, and outpatient services for teens and adults, including the Mothers in Recovery program. CoRR’s Mothers in Recovery program, supported in part by First 5 Placer, provides treatment specific to pregnant and parenting women, including childcare in their child development center.

Participating in outpatient services, residents enjoy a safe housing options as they build a strong foundation of long term recovery.

“We are so glad to offer this resource for Placer County mothers and children. This is an identified area of great need,” said Doreen Peters, CoRR’s Transitional Housing Program Manager.

Relationships strengthen the foundation of recovery as transitional housing residents create a clean living environment and engage in peer-related programs that encourage team work and a sense of community. Transitional housing residents build connections and gain control of their lives through the guidance of a structured outpatient program.

By choosing to live in a sober community, transitional housing residents permit themselves to discover a life of possibility, constructed by them and supported by their peers and a caring professional staff.
