Eric experienced several bouts of homelessness before moving into a transitional housing program and enrolling in a treatment program for substance abuse. He recently was able to move into an apartment while continuing the treatment program. With help from the program, Eric has been able to avoid a recurrence of homelessness; maintain sobriety through regular participation in mental health and substance abuse services; and sustain his housing. He looks forward to returning to work as a licensed electrician, and is motivated by the supportive staff. His future looks bright.
