Free at Last

Free At Last rebuilds the community from within, reclaiming addicts and giving people who failed in the past the chance to succeed in the future. Free At Last provides community­ based, culturally appropriate bilingual (English/Spanish) treatment, intervention and prevention services designed to reduce the exceptionally high rates of substance abuse and HIV infection and to break the cycle of addiction, reunite and rebuild families torn apart by intergenerational addiction, provide alternatives to incarceration, and foster economic self-­ sufficiency.
