Aspire Indiana Health and Progress House have joined forces to offer an evolution of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment, which we refer to as the Whole Health Recovery Continuum (WHRC). Instead of scattering the pieces to the recovery puzzle and expecting people to find them, the WHRC brings everything needed for a highly-effective recovery program, including a stable, safe place to live. In this continuum of care, there is no right or wrong place to enter treatment.
Some may begin their recovery journey at a high-intensity treatment center, like our Mockingbird Hill Recovery Center in Anderson. Others might go straight to a recovery residence like Progress House in Indianapolis, where they can enjoy peer support while gaining the skills and stability they need to reclaim their lives and then onto the Next Steps housing program, a network of semi-independent recovery homes. Wherever they enter the continuum, they’ll receive the comprehensive help they need:
For some people, they may naturally progress from a high-intensity treatment facility through a recovery residence to semi-independent recovery housing.. Others might start and leave from the same point in the Continuum. It all depends on the nature of their individual needs to chart the path their recovery journey will take. But the goal is the same for everyone: to reach a stage of long-term recovery where the disease of substance use disorder (SUD) is no longer controlling their lives.
In spring 2021, Aspire Indiana Health will open our first Whole Health Recovery Center in Anderson, Ind., on the site of the former Mockingbird Hill Park, a famous concert venue for country, bluegrass and blues artists.
It will be credentialed as both a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and Indiana Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) and certified to the National Alliance for Recovery Residence (NARR) standards by the Indiana Affiliation of Recovery Residences (INARR).
The White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy has called the project “a model for Indiana and the country.”
Progress House is the oldest and largest recovery residence organization in Indiana. It started out in 1961 as a small house for recovering alcoholics on the Northside of Indianapolis, and has grown and evolved since then.
Today it operates downtown Indianapolis, serving up to 100 men who live at the main facility and another 50 who have graduated to transitional recovery housing known as Next Step. Progress House provides a sober, secure, comfortable living environment with intensive recovery support services.
