Canal House as a path to recovery
"It's up to the individual...if your mind is not in it, no sober house or program is going to teach you that. It comes from within."
Nick, resident of Canal house
It was his arrest in 2016 that was the real turning point. Nick, now 32 years old, grew up in Sandwich and started using drugs while in high school. Addicted to heroin he was incarcerated numerous times for drug-related offenses.
When he was arrested in 2016, he was sentenced to 18 months in jail. At his nine month parole hearing he was given a list of sober living facilities to choose from - he chose Canal House.
