Can You Help Us?

Dear Friends and Families,

I’m asking you to join us in our battle to combat addiction and stigma in our community. Your gift–any amount–will help us SO MUCH as we continue to fight the opioid crisis and the chaos and violence that comes with it. Your money goes directly to our educational programs, to help keep drugs out of the hands of our children. To our treatment programs, where we heal individuals so they can start the healing in their families. To the hospitals, where our Recovery Coaches help overdose patients brought back from the dead (with Narcan), to find recovery and begin the journey back to health. And to the recovery residences, where individuals already in recovery are taught how to maintain it, despite the many stresses and triggers of everyday life.

Our mission is urgent. We still hear about the opioid epidemic, though it has faded somewhat in the news of late. Folks, it is every bit as bad–or worse–than it has ever been, and we are fighting it. We are making good progress but it is slow going, and WE NEED YOU. Not just your money, but also your ideas, your volunteer time, your positivity and your energy. We need to strengthen our movement and fight the disease of substance use disorder from every angle. Will you help us? You can make a huge difference in someone’s life!

With your help we can continue this critical work that impacts society as a whole by empowering individuals to free themselves and their families from the death-grip of substance use disorder. Studies show that one in three people has someone in their extended family who suffers from it, making this cause personal for all of us.

In large part because of the generosity and continued partnership of our supporters, the year 2019 brought many successes to Home of New Vision! We opened our doors to thousands of individuals seeking treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) and doubled the number of residential treatment beds for men and women. This year we also opened a new women’s recovery residence, for Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), to support yet another pathway to recovery. It is our mission to provide evidence-based treatment practices and specialized services to stabilize, protect, educate and encourage those affected by the disease of addiction.

Please support Home of New Vision this holiday season. The opportunity to make a profound difference in someone’s life is here, right now! In addition to recovery housing, Home of New Vision offers nine other programs to meet the needs of recovering individuals in our community. Your support helps us bring vital outreach to the public and numerous treatment options to our clients. We can do this! And we so appreciate you!

With gratitude,

Ryan S

Ryan S. grew up in Wayne County, Michigan, and at age 15 was “dabbling in pot and alcohol.” At 16, after having oral surgery, he was prescribed Vicodin for pain. He immediately liked the drug, and wanted more. Ryan’s use slowly escalated until, by his senior year in high school, he was a daily user of Oxycontin.

Ryan worked hard and had money, but even so, his habit was costly: $40-$50 for a single Oxycontin pill! Like many people addicted to pills, eventually it just cost too much, and Ryan switched to heroin. His life took a turn for the worse. Overwhelmed by his addiction, Ryan lost the trust and support of his family, lost numerous jobs, friends, and was even homeless for a period of time. He had hit “bottom.”

When Ryan came to Home of New Vision (Read more …)

Robert Sundae

You might walk past them on the street and never know Robert Johnson and Sundae Maas are modern-day heroes. Quiet and unassuming, Robert could be a college professor, with his close-cropped gray hair, the button-down collar shirt and narrow, black-framed glasses. Sundae has the “rock star,” personality, with her blonde hair, big smile and fashionable tastes. But, different as they are, Robert and Sundae share their passion and love in fighting the opioid epidemic, while tirelessly helping others.

In long-term recovery themselves, both are Recovery Coaches with HNV’s Project ASSERT, Sundae stationed in the emergency room at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ypsilanti, and Robert at the Psychiatric Emergency Room at University of Michigan Hospital. The mission? To interface with patients who have either had an overdose or suffer from the chronic medical illness of substance use disorder. (Read more …)

Mission and Philosophy

Glynis Anderson Founder and CEO
Glynis Anderson, Founder and CEO

Home of New Vision is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides gender-specific programs and specialized services to empower, protect, encourage, and enrich the lives of men, women, their families, and communities affected by the disease of addiction. We are committed to promoting change and awareness, and reducing stigma and shame, by providing a better understanding of recovery. Our philosophy is that substance use disorders are treatable, chronic diseases whose progression can be interrupted at any point. We believe that substance use disorder education, treatment, and support are effective ways to intervene in the progression and development of chemical dependency, and to allow for sustained, long-term recovery.

At Home of New Vision, we believe in using the Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) approach coupled with relational and empowerment models in our therapeutic services for drug and alcohol addiction. These models acknowledge that community and peer connections are fundamental to the growth, recovery, and healing of chemically dependent individuals.

At Home of New Vision, we encourage the development of mutually supportive and empathetic bonds with others and the community system. We have found that this assists in developing a healthier definition of self, autonomy, and competency. Here, we recognize that chemically dependent individuals are not only faced with the difficulties of recovering from addiction, but also must often contend with systemic biases and oppression related to gender, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, and marital and parental status.

The ROSC approach addresses not only the importance of community connections and peers but also identifies the importance of systems as they relate to recovery and the stigmatization of addiction. Over the years, we have found that addressing these issues as part of the treatment protocol correlates with higher self-esteem and self-sufficiency.
