P.E.A.R.L.’s Vision

P.E.A.R.L.’s Vision is to heal the recovery community!

When recovering men and women are given the help they need instead of feeling stigmatized by their community, they receive an invaluable resource in their recovery.

P.E.A.R.L. offers several services and free programs that are available to Specialty Court participants and the recovering community.

“I was really upset when the judge told me I had to go to the P.E.A.R.L. Recovery House. I didn’t want to be there, and I didn’t want to be in Drug Court. Now that I’ve been there for a while, I’m so thankful for the P.E.A.R.L. house and so thankful for Drug Court. I’m getting to spend time with my kids, and that’s amazing…the better I’m doing, the better they are doing, and the more they want to be around me.”

“I heard about P.E.A.R.L. through Drug Court when I needed assistance with my car payment. P.E.A.R.L. wrote me a check so I… wouldn’t lose my car. I have a two-year-old daughter, and we just moved into a new house. If P.E.A.R.L. wouldn’t have helped me with my car payment, I wouldn’t have had a way to get back and forth to work to pay for our new house… If I didn’t have that car, I would probably be back in jail.”
