Corey came into Matt Talbot’s Transitional Housing Program after being incarcerated on drug related charges. Substance use had played a central role in his legal and personal troubles for many years. And at 31 years old, he decided he was ready to make a change.
After looking at transitional housing options in Omaha and Lincoln, he found Matt Talbot’s program to be exactly what he was looking for – especially the routine, responsibility, and accountability that are the cornerstones of Matt Talbot’s program.
“The house was safe and clean – a place where I could go to work, come home, and get up and do that again the next day. Living there helped me save money, focus on my recovery, and get back to a normal life.”
The program provides a sober living environment for homeless individuals who have experienced significant drug and alcohol problems and are committed to remaining abstinent from substances and working on goals to improve their lives. Intensive case management and substance abuse counseling focus on relapse prevention and assist residents in accessing services, securing employment, and saving money.
Living in his own apartment now, Corey just received a promotion at work, has maintained his sobriety, and remains grateful for the opportunities he had while living at the transitions house.
“The staff at Matt Talbot really care about you and want to help. They gave me all the tools I needed to start over. I feel happy and confident that I’m going to be OK.”
