About Hogar CREA
As a non-profit organization, we at Hogar CREA have been committed to preventing and treating alcohol and substance abuse for over half a century. Our organization was founded in 1968 in Saint Just Ward in Puerto Rico.
Currently, we are being represented by 104 facilities in Puerto Rico, the US, South America, and Central America. We provide alcohol and drug addiction treatment services to people of all genders, including adults and adolescents, in a residential setting.
Our office bearers are appointed based on the principle that our ex-residents, who have completed the treatment at our facilities, will have first-hand experience of our program. Therefore, the Directorship in the Homes lies with treated individuals who are an example of how effective our program is. They can build stronger relationships with our new residents during treatment.
Our Directors and other members get assistance in their missions from a team of experts that include social workers, doctors, nurses, psychologists who provide direct and professional services to our residents.
All our residents get the opportunity to live in an environment that is reminiscent of a genuine home environment. All the emotional, physical, moral, and spiritual elements help in building a better and stronger character.
The residents are required to attend to a wide range of well-planned, routine duties. This helps in developing a sense of both individual and collective responsibility. The things they do in the Home as part of their routine are well-planned and are part of their re-development process.
