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! 🙂

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!

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. 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.

Healing Others

Is our mission.

“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

I recently joined CFC 2/9/2021 and it has been nothing but an amazing experience since! The meetings are very informative, helpful and ground breaking. They have a meeting every night of the week which has been a really great option to turn to. Not only does CFC host terrific meetings but they also host an activity as a group every weekend. So far I've been to three activities and they have given me something to look forward to every week. The leaders and members of CFC are extremely warm, kind and welcoming and have been right from the start! I'm so happy and excited to be apart of a community so wonderful that is truly going to be fundamental part of my journey!

I used to wake up feeling neurotically lethargic in an ironic and iconic way; a slave to sin-- completely stuck in the bondage of them chains of regret and pain. It sucked! I came to CFC on 10-18-2020 and now I wake up energized and free, self-aware and clean, no longer caught up (or in) that tangled web I wove called drunkenness. Life no longer sucks!

If your loved one is struggling with addiction and is ready to reclaim his/her life, please consider CFC Recovery sober houses after completing a 30- to 45-day rehab program. Hint-hint. Advanced Health & Education in Eatontown, NJ. CFC did something right! Thank you soooooo much CFC Recovery for helping our son get himself back together. Let the church say amen and amen again!
