Duffles of Love

CFC Loud N Clear Foundation in partnership with Oceans Harbor House gives back this holiday season to at-risk and vulnerable youth with "Duffles of Love!" Often times, children in these circumstances travel from place to place with garbage bags as their "suitcase." CFC is proud to donate duffles bags full of essential items, packed with love, just the way mom would.

“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

Frequently Asked Questions

Answering Your Common Questions

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.

No, CFC is a progressive self help program run entirely by peers and recovery specialists. There is no clinical services provided.

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

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.

Coming Full Circle

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

Testimonials

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! 🙂
Erin B.
This is my favorite meeting. It settles me and let’s me sustain a full hour of total calm and relaxation. I think everyone should experience this as it is good for mind,body and soul. We are very lucky to be afforded the opportunity to have such experience staff teach us!
Lynn M.
When I first came to CFC I was at the end of my rope. I had been to multiple treatment facilities. I had tried to get clean almost every way possible and I couldn't seem to get it. I had never heard of Smart Recovery before I came to CFC. Smart and CFC has given me the tools to be able to pause. Look at a situation for multiple perspectives. They have helped me reignite and find passions. That I thought I would never be able to find or get that motivation to try again. They instilled in me the importance of self care. That was an area I was seriously lacking in. Since then I have lost over 80 lbs. They have helped me boost my confidence that no goal is impossible. You just have to be willing to work hard enough. I am now a recovery coach. I work as a house manager for Relevance Behavioral Health LLC. and I have been sober for over 3 years sober. I am achieving things that I thought I could never do before. I am beyond grateful to everyone at CFC words can't even express how thankful I am. CFC is truly a family to me.- Amy S. The impact of my addiction today has opened doors to generational healing my family never knew we needed. The impact this program has had on myself and my family is something I can't even begin to know how to repay. I became part of the building blocks to CFC’s SHE Goals “women's empowerment” meeting, where we cover all spectrums of pain and suffering women may have endured in their lives. Whether addiction, grief, mental health, domestic violence, or loss of identity. We together, build ourselves up. I hope that this meeting leaves a lasting impact, and creates a domino effect of love & healing between women. I hope when these women sit with their mothers, sisters, daughters, friends they can spread some message of hope and leave their impact on the world that's worth remembering, I know every woman within this program, and that meeting has dramatically impacted my life. They have made me feel purpose.- Kim C. "I am a person in long term recovery who moved to this area 6 years ago. I have never witnessed an organization like CFC Loud N Clear before. I've witnessed recovery centers from Pennsylvania to Florida, however, nothing that keeps their members accountable like CFC. The open, loving, caring members, staff, and family members make all the difference. I have the "love first" approach . I was asked to be the family liaison and that, personally, has changed my life for the better. We say CFC takes you out of your comfort zone, to face your fears, and help you to overcome them. Well...it works. I am a female who does not wear dresses! CFC has gotten me to wear a dress or two to their events! Working with the family program has helped me to learn to take care of myself while helping others. I have CFC to thank for my personal growth." - Sue M. Without this awesome, supportive, teaching and FUN community, today would not be as special as it is to me (My One Year). I’ve struggled with mental health and addiction my entire life. Everyday is different, some much harder than others, but I can say that I am HAPPY today. I am learning more about myself each day and I am beginning to love the person I’m becoming. I’m not ashamed of my past anymore, I don’t beat myself up as much as I used to, I don’t immediately run away from my fears. I have learned that it is okay not to be okay and I can talk about the hard times now. I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime and have had more fun without drugs or alcohol than I ever thought was possible. Thank you CFC Recovery for welcoming me with open arms and showing me that recovery is not only possible, but enjoyable.
