The HERO Program is a state-licensed substance abuse treatment center, housed in the newly built John L. Hoich Center for Recovery on the Stephen Center Campus.
The HERO Program is extremely affordable, making access to the treatment available to a wide variety of men and women. The evidence-based twelve-step supported program provides a wide array of treatment opportunities that go far beyond simple 28-day programs. Clients have the opportunity to remain in the program for as long as necessary while regaining employment, re-establishing family relationships, and preparing themselves for lifetimes of sobriety and drug-free success.
The program recognizes the need for and provides treatment options for those with a co-occuring mental illness as well. HERO Program staff work closely with families, drug courts, and other professionals providing additional services to clients.

CEO Del Bomberger stated "This accreditation shows that it is possible for an organization to provide professional level and internationally acclaimed services to homeless and low-income men and women".
