PRESS RELEASE / STATEMENT TO
7 MONTH FRACAS WITH CITY OF
CINCINNATI IS OVER – NEW FOUNDATIONS REMAINS OPEN & CONTINUING TO WORK WITH
THE RECOVERING COMMUNITY TO FIGHT HEROIN OVERDOSE & ALCOHOLISM/ADDICTION!
Since March 2014 New Foundations
Transitional Living has been involved in a dispute brought by City of
Cincinnati over the operation of its sober living houses.
As a result, the Greater
Cincinnati Recovery Board Resource Collaborative (GCRRC), concerned citizens
and other organizations had some confusion as to the exact nature of New
Foundations day-to-day operations.
A multitude of accusations were
thrown upon NFTL by 3 parties who simply did not know exactly what
work is done at the largest transitional housing provider in the area.
We are thrilled to announce that
New Foundations has stood the test!
After 7 months of working closely
with the City and our Mayor, as well as prominent recovery organizations in our
area, NFTL is excited and honored to announce that we have reached an agreement
with the City of Cincinnati that will end the dispute.
New Foundations has always had
one mission: to provide quality, modern living for men and women in recovery
from drug and/or alcohol abuse in a structured environment. We have always put
our residents first.
With the help from the City, our
attorney and our supporters we have further cemented that deep commitment by
beginning work with the National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) to
be a part of national and regional best practices which also put residents
New Foundations has been a leader
in the recovering community and we are honored and ready to continue that role.
We want to thank the City, our
supporters, providers of recovery services in the region - and especially our
residents - for remembering that our area is under siege from a heroin epidemic
and that we all have to answer the call to fight it. It is encouraging to know
that everyone involved worked hard to reach a conclusion that was agreeable to
all parties so that we can continue our work.
It is a good day for New
Foundations, for the City of Cincinnati – and for all of those who champion the
work of recovery.
NFTL is alive and open for
business! Our work is just beginning!

1. Case for FAIR HOUSING for our sober living houses: CLICK HERE
...the effective date of the 1988 Amendments to the Federal Fair Housing Act, it has been a matter of law. Those amendments make it unlawful for any jurisdiction to discriminate against congregate living for the disabled. Recovering alcoholics and drug addicts are within the scope of the term "disabled". Therefore, [sober living houses] are not subject to zoning laws regulating the number of unrelated individuals who may live in a single family dwelling. A Sober Living House is not a treatment facility. It is simply an alcohol and drug free living environment which provides an opportunity for recovering individuals to live as a family unit focused on the need to change their individual lifestyle to one absolutely free of alcohol and drug use...

We KNOW recovery!
Rebuilding Continues Right Here... Right Now!
New Foundations is a spiritually (not religious) based, safe place for men and women to continue their transition into recovery after successful detox and rehab or discharge from the court system (we are NOT treatment). Sometimes called sober living or a halfway house - we provide group housing for men and women to recover together in!
ALL of our Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky sober living houses are modern, clean and comfortable!
Every sober living house at NFTL enjoys flat screen TVs, satellite TV and high speed internet connection.
ALL of our transitional houses have TOP Managers & Assistant Managers who work closely with each resident to monitor progress and facilitate growth!
NFTL has 8 sober houses - 7 in Cincinnati and 1 in Northern Kentucky. We are the largest transitional living organization providing "sober living houses" in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
And since our opening in 2010 with just 5 beds, we have grown to more than just a transitional house. Please explore our website to see how our growth and position has allowed us to offer more than any other halfway house in the city!
Our connections in the alcohol and drug recovery community... along with our size, allow us to offer more than other organizations can. Click through all of our menu tabs to learn more!
Click on "LOCATIONS & MANAGERS" for phone numbers and email addresses!
We currently have beds available for men and women who are serious about recovery and want to embark on a powerful new journey in life!
Don't get your "old" life back! Get whole, brand new one!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Our wonderful friends at CCAT (Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment) offer support groups for family members of the alcoholic and addict. We encourage YOU to attend! The alcoholic's/addict's family must take care of themselves, too!
