Nuestra Vida helps tackle problems and remove obstacles to recovery.
Successful recovery from substance abuse requires a network of support around the recovering person because no one can do it alone. Sometimes the network is family and friends, sometimes professionals and others in recovery, but always support is there.
For those of Hispanic heritage who struggle with language difficulties and cultural expectations, SACA’s NUESTRA CLINICA has been a place for bilingual, culturally competent outpatient substance abuse treatment for nearly two decades. This service was joined by NUESTRA RESIDENCIAL which opened in 2002 as Pennsylvania’s first Hispanic inpatient treatment facility for men.
Now NUESTRA VIDA RECOVERY HOUSE helps sustain the course charted in treatment by providing a stable, sober and safe place where Latino men can live for six months to a year. At NUESTRA VIDA there is help to find a job, re-start education, improve English skills or finish a GED. There is support to help repair broken relationships, reconnect with families or children and continue the spiritual journey of recovery.
Whether it is finding clothes, getting substance abuse or mental health counseling, signing up for a parenting class or trying to navigate the system, NUESTRA VIDA can help.
