ARCHway Provides Over $70,000 in Financial Support to Increase Access to Care and Healthy Solutions
ARCHway believes that recovery is possible when people are surrounded by the right resources, support, and care. We term this RECOVERY CAPITAL, the internal and external factors that help someone find and maintain recovery from substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Recovery capital can include recovery housing, social support groups, employment and educational opportunities, transportation, treatment, legal support, life skills, and so much more. The more recovery capital a person has the better their chances of maintaining a happy, joyous, and free recovery!
So ARCHway provides grants to support a variety of recovery-oriented systems of care, so individuals can be wrapped in these resources and as a result, increase their recovery capital. Below is a list of the organizations ARCHway financial supported through grants during quarter 4 of 2022.

As recovery goals are sought, people in recovery realize that there are unforseen barriers to success. These barriers can cause stress and anxiety. When no support is available, people in recovery can experience feelings of hopelessness and defeat. These feelings often lead to a return to using drugs and alcohol. archway Institute funds help “cafe” to address some of these barriers Stable recovery housing and reliable transportation help improve and sustain long-term recovery for those being served. The support from archway Institute results in people being stable and contributing citizens in our neighborhoods.
