What is Second Chance?
A house which provides a safe, home-like
living environment, free of alcohol and illicit drugs, that provides essential
services to men from the age of 19 and over.
Personal involvement is promoted
in goal-planning and action strategies to deal with the ongoing
problems of addiction. We work with clients to
address aftercare issues such as employment, housing, medical
concerns, and relationship building.
Who runs our House?
The North Island Supportive
Recovery Society has operated Second Chance since 1990. We are a
not-for-profit society dedicated to what we believe to be a fresh approach
in creating an environment in which to recover from substance misuse.
The society is made up of a dedicated volunteer board of directors.
