“We have a culture here of all of our residents helping each other out,” said Rick Utley, the co-founder and development director at Doc’s. “They go to meetings together, they lean on each other. We do fun things together. In recovery, you have to learn to have fun again. Some of us forgot how to do that along the way.”

Doc’s is helping about 60 people as of right now.
