Integrity House, a nationally recognized substance abuse rehabilitation center with locations in Newark and Secaucus, received a donation of $10,000 from Wells Fargo on Wednesday, July 24, 2013. The donation will be used to help to fund the Women’s Supportive Housing Program, part of Integrity House’s recovery support progression.

“The generosity of Wells Fargo will help us continue our superior service of treatment for women, and help us to raise awareness about the disease of addiction,” said Robert J. Budsock, CEO of Integrity House.  “We are truly blessed to have the support of a great company like Wells Fargo as well as several other high-profile businesses. The effect this donation will have on residents in the program and their families will create results and opportunities they need for long-term success with recovery.”

The Women’s Supportive Housing Program provides essential resources that an individual may not have while working to overcome addiction. Tenants in this program are provided with the resources to help them to learn how to maintain long-term sobriety, how to create financial independence, and how to manage eventual family reunification, all while living in a safe, affordable and supportive environment. Tenants may remain in the facility for 12-24 months and have access to a Case Management assistance to help find housing opportunities beyond Integrity House. Wells Fargo’s donation to this facility and program will contribute to the positive progression in residents’ lives.

Since 1968, Integrity House has pioneered one of the largest and most acclaimed substance abuse programs in New Jersey.  Dedicated to helping all who request assistance, its mission is to help individuals and families through an effective and measurable system of comprehensive therapeutic community addictions treatment and recovery support to bring about positive, long-term lifestyle changes.  Through its facilities in Newark and Secaucus, Integrity House provides residential treatment and outpatient services to substance abuse addicts annually from all socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities.
