Recovery Homes Popping Up in Talbot County

Posted: 08/21/2017 18:13:00 -04:00 Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - It looks like any other home in Easton, but the Humble House is more than that - it's a sanctuary.

"When this opportunity came up, it was a blessing," said 46-year-old Demetrius, a recovering addict.

 "Without a place like this, I would have no place to go," Demetrius said.

Demetrius says he's struggled with addictions to alcohol and marijuana for 36 years, but now he's clean - thanks in part to the Humble House.

"I'm very happy," Demetrius said. "It let's me know that I got a chance to take in and keep going forward and beat this."

The Humble House opened up last week and it's one of at least three recovery houses that have opened their doors within the last few months.

Humble House Director, Jeremy Savin, says the state's opioid epidemic and other drug addictions are fueling a need for more.

"We've only been open a week and we've had three folks move in already," Savin said.

Savin, who is a former addict himself, says places like Humble House are built out-of-pocket by its directors. He's been there before.

"I've lived in a situation like this twice and one of them was a really positive experience," Savin said. "I've been sober since then."

Soon - the Humble House could look something like The Gratitude House. 

The Gratitude House opened in June and it's been a success.

"To see these guys doing welI, I feel like I have ten more sons," said Sara Rissolo, the director of the Gratitude House.

It's a humble beginning for people like Demetrius.

"It's not many times in life that you get a chance like this, so you have to take it and put your best foot forward when you do get a chance."

More information about The Humble House can be found on their website.
