“Waking up for a few sober minutes, face wet, embedded on a dirt ridden floor, in this abandoned motel in the middle of palm springs…I was crying in my sleep.  I needed to run from myself, instead I reached for another needle….internal combustible self-hatred. If I remained sober for too many minutes I would have to realize where I was and what I had become.” Click Here to Read Daniel’s Story

CFC Recovery Homes

Opened in January 2015 in Monmouth and Ocean County, CFC Recovery Homes were created as a perfect model for long term recovery. Many sober living's lack the structure and management that is necessary to guide individuals on a positive path to recovery. CFC Recovery Homes are a perfect blend of independence, peer support, safety, and structure that will keep residents motivated and focus on their positive life goals. These houses are democratically self-run and self-supported by occupants in recovery.

CFC is a relapse prevention program meaning our program begins after formal treatment and detox. We provided an array of recovery support services and an active sober social community. If you or a loved one is still in active addiction, we can assist with the entire journey from intervention to recovery.

CFC provides an array of services to help individuals rebuild their lives after addiction while achieving longterm sobriety. These programs include:

  • Multiple pathway meetings which teach coping skill and self care
  • Sober social events which build community, peer support, self confidence and self worth
  • Volunteer opportunities which teach humility and gratitude
  • Surrounging an individual with a sober community allows them to create new friends and experiences separate from their old bad habits
  • Community creates the opposite of isolation.
  • Our Career & Employment program allows members to dream about a future regardless of their past mistakes.
  • Long Term Commitment to recovery. This is a lifestyle change, not just a phase.

To become a CFC Member in Recovery, an individual must be actively pursuing recovery and schedule a meeting with our member services coordinator for an intake. 

 

To become a CFC Member in Recovery, an individual must have 30 days clean time and then an Intake appointment must be scheduled. Intakes occur at different times at each location. These will be individual or small group sessions and can take up to an hour.

CFC is the boots on the ground team that helps put those plans in motion.

What CFC Stands for

“I always describe addiction as more of an infection than a disease. It starts off as a wound that isn’t taken care of properly whether that is a chemical imbalance, a belief system that is irrational, unresolved trauma or the inability to cope with conditions. A person finds a substance or behavior that fixes the symptoms but not the problem and the wound becomes infected (addiction). Addiction Treatment is where one goes to clean that wound out of the infection and then recovery, community, and relapse prevention are the protocol in order to finally heal that wound. Once all our wounds are healed, we need to maintain these practices so that any new wounds do not become infected.”

Daniel Regan, Founder

Stories of Hope & Healing

CFC has given me so many great things in my life and recovery since joining two months ago! Today after the Saturday Smart Recovery meeting me and two other CFC members went to the Manasquan reservoir. I had a beautiful time and was with an awesome company! I've met so many amazing, like-minded people with the same goal as me. CFC has also motivated me to better myself and my health. I recently started eating healthy and working out because being in recovery is about the whole picture...the mind, body, and spirit. Being a CFC member has done wonders for my well-being and recovery! Many thanks to this fantastic foundation! 🙂

Thank you to jay, Ashley, and Dan v for putting this together for our CFC family. This was such a good experience and such a fun time getting together with everyone, having the theater to our selves, and getting into the Christmas spirit. Hands down one of my favorite nights with everyone yet! It’s so refreshing to go to our events SOBER and actually enjoy my self. Laugh with people I love, and not run to hide in a bathroom and drink just to build up the courage to be around everyone! Always looking forward to the next event!
