“We are here to be of service to you.”

WHO WE SERVE

Bodhi Casa is a sober, structured recovery community for men 18-35 failing to launch in life. For those men who have substance abuse, behavioral, emotional, co-occurring disorders and mental health needs. We are a safe, abstinence-based environment of fellowship, support, accountability, and case management.

Most young men have first attended a primary residential treatment program, therapeutic wilderness program, or therapeutic boarding school; and are detoxed, medication compliant and stabilized.

We suggest that families prioritize taking care of themselves and start gravitating away from rescuing and enabling and co-dependent destructive family systems."

"Being of service to those who are suffering is the cornerstone of growth and kindness. It not only helps those that are less fortunate, but feeds a sense of purpose and compassion. Through volunteering we build upon the concept of service and our actions positively affect the person receiving our kindness. We thus develop an increased sense of social responsibility, self esteem, and life purpose, giving individuals a more global view of society, and feeding the heart."
