PUEBLO — One of the most difficult challenges in life for those who are suffering from drug or alcohol abuse is learning to beat the addiction and try to live a sober life.

To that end, the Southern Colorado Harm Reduction Association, Tribe Recovery Homes and Quest For Change have teamed up and purchased a home in Pueblo to turn it in to a home where people who are struggling with alcoholism can pursue sober living.

The home is located near Greenwood and 12th, and those who are making this service available are working to defeat the stigma attached to an addictive lifestyle and show people that there is hope and that they want to
be a part of the community and be a part of the solution.

Thomas Hernandez with Tribe Recovery Homes told News 5 that "the opportunity to do this, i couldn't be happier,we want to be part of the community, we don't want to tell the community what to do, we want to find out what pueblo needs and build on that."

They hope to have it up and running by October and house eleven to fifteen people.And the group homes to purchase more homes in the future to provide this life saving service to more of those in need.
