Supporting men who are being released back into the community after incarceration.Aftercare for men affected by substance abuse
Recovery First Foundation is a charity dedicated to supporting men who are being released back into the community after incarceration. We provide support networks and services that assist in the reintegration and aftercare for men that have been affected by substance dependency. RF believes developing and building relationships with individuals is a key element to achieving sustainable aftercare.
With over twenty years’ experience in the recovery field, we understand the importance of having access to mentors or role models who are willing to assist in facilitating and promoting recovery first.
We also offer assistance and support to men with Court pressure or proceedings pending, for drug or alcohol related offending.
It can be at this point in one's life that the reality of substance dependency becomes more apparent. Through collaborative effort with Probation Officers, we enable men to access recovery-focused meetings whilst on home detention or e-bail.
Here at RF we believe in order for recovery and rehabilitation to be more affective, it is important that they attend appropriate meetings relating to their needs, and have access to mentors/role models at the earliest stage possible.
RF aims to build relationships with other target groups that will enhance recovery. The outcome is a safer place for all in New Zealand as crime and violence decreases.
