Competent. Caring. Empathetic.

When Fred Brown was founded, it was difficult to find a sober living arrangement for people with addictions beyond alcoholism. Fred Brown wanted to provide a place that served a broader spectrum of people — those recently released from prison, recovering from drug addiction — and the staff has always been more intensely trained, skilled and qualified to serve more complex needs. The staff today represents the spirit of Fred Brown – in fact many are graduates of the program.
