Derry, NH (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
On Sunday, October 13th, 2013, the event center at Southern New Hampshire University was buzzing with nearly three hundred people who gathered together in celebration. The Granite House, an extended care program for men in Derry, NH has achieved a significant milestone by marking the fifth anniversary of its founding. Granite House staff, clients, industry professionals, friends and family enjoyed an evening filled with conversation, dinner and highlighted guest speakers Chris Raymer and Mark Lundholm sharing their renowned passion with the group. The celebratory event was one which will not be soon be forgotten.
The Granite House began its journey in October of 2008. Founder of the organization, Eric Spofford, came up with the idea of starting this program following his own personal recovery process, through which he discovered a passion for helping others with the same affliction. During the earliest days the organization was an eleven bed sober house where Eric lived on site managing all operations. The Granite House today is a nationally recognized extended care program for young men between the ages of 18 and 35. The program revolves around a 12-Step philosophy and three phase approach encompassing all the additional and necessary tools people with quality long term recovery require.
Extended care programs are facilities designed for those who have completed inpatient substance abuse treatment and are looking to continue their recovery in an environment that supports the new standards of behavior and personal conduct acquired in their treatment program. “The last five years have been an exciting time with tremendous growth and great success,” says CEO Michael Smith who has been involved with The Granite House program development since its inception. “As a team we do everything in our power to foster a supportive environment, provide an efficient and effective program and successfully guide these young men towards sustainable recovery. We are excited about the future of The Granite House and its mission of serving those that need our help”.
