Earlier on Radio Times, host Marty Moss-Coane took calls from listeners about their personal experiences with living in recovery homes.

There are many recovery homes in Philadelphia that are not licensed and unregulated. Some of these homes are not safe places for addicts to recover, but some have provided ways for addicts to get sober.

Earlier on Radio Times, host Marty Moss-Coane took calls from listeners about their personal experiences with living in recovery homes.

“On Frankford Avenue, there’s a string of these homes [that] are literally three blocks away from the worst drug addicted neighborhood in the city,” Dan from Philadelphia said.

“Aren’t you suppose to move people away from the areas where the drugs are in order to help them recover?”

“I’ve grown so much in my recovering living with other addicts,” Nick from New Jersey said. “It forces you to focus on your recovery. You’ve got to take responsibility of yourself as an addict.”
