PHILOSOPHY & PROCESS
Transitional recovery homes provide a safe environment to support recovery from substance abuse for those who are emerging from medical detox, residential treatment, jail, or off the street. A person’s home living environment often does not always provide the support necessary to facilitate long term sobriety. BRS manages multiple recovery homes and implements the necessary funding and programming to provide those in early recovery with the support needed to successfully transition back into the community. These homes provide a combination of freedom and structure that help the person begin to readjust to life in the real world.
Instead of immediately returning to the living situation that possibly fostered and facilitated the substance abuse issue, recovery homes provide a structured environment in which a person can continue to focus on recovery from substance use disorders. Recovery homes have rules and regulations that require participation in twelve-step programs, house meetings, meditations, and other treatment programs that continue to reinforce the main proponents of long term recovery.

Adam dove deep into abstinence-based and 12- step recovery, where he began working with men just like him. As the drug and alcohol epidemic swept through the Mahoning Valley, the need for more quality recovery homes was greater than ever. Adam was convinced he needed to do something. He opened his first recovery home in 2015. To continue to serve those in need Adam and Co-Founder Jason Kmentt founded Broadway Recovery Services and together grew from one house to what we are today.
Adam’s sobriety has given him a life with more peace and happiness than he ever expected. He spends much of his free time working out and training Mixed Martial Arts.
