 “Face 2 Face is a proactive early education and intervention program developed, produced and provided to local schools and community groups. It is designed to put a face on drug and alcohol addiction. Its strength is the recovering addicts and their families who share their stories and consequences of their choices.”
The Kids Escaping Drugs Campus consists of three buildings that house up to 62 chemically-dependent youths ages 12 to 20. Renaissance House is a 30 bed intensive treatment facility for boys, Stepping Stones is a 16 bed girls’ residence which combines both inpatient and continuum of care programs while Promise House is a 16 bed continuum of care residence for boys.
Originally, the organization was founded in 1977 as Alcohol and Drug Dependency Services, Inc. (ADDS). The purpose was …”to operate inpatient residential and outpatient treatment programs for persons addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.” ADDS evolved and in 1991 the space known as Renaissance House accepted its first clients.
The mission statement is, “Raise, manage and distribute funds for the development and support of facilities, community education, and advocacy programs for adolescents and their families in Western New York suffering from alcohol and drug dependency/addiction.”
Everyone is aware of the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse but not always sure about intervention.
