Why The Heartland House is Important

The Heartland House Foundation is an important non-profit recovery center for men who have nowhere else to go and need help with recovering from addiction. According to their website, the Heartland House’s “overall goals are to provide a living environment conducive to continued recovery, conduct an educational program that helps the newly recovering alcoholic/addict establish a long-term support system, and generate attitudes that enhance self-sufficiency, self-worth and an ongoing quality of life.”

They are a staple in the community in San Diego and are providing a crucial service to those who are in need of a helping hand. With over 50 years of experience serving San Diego, their effectiveness is demonstrated by their long-standing relationship with the County of San Diego HHSA Behavioral Health Sciences and their special history with the Veterans Administration (VA). Heartland House is one of only two recovery facilities in San Diego County contracted by the VA to serve veterans with substance abuse issues.
