The wealth of knowledge and experience on this staff is remarkable.” On what sets Foundation House apart, she believes, “the fundamental aspect for me is the diverse activities, therapies and holistic offerings. Having the serene urban campus here in Portland, the Foxhole Ranch in Bethel and the beaches and mountains of Maine in our backyard makes Foundation House an oasis for young men seeking recovery.”
