About the Center:

"The program works with people in New Haven who have not been reached by our addiction service system, as well as those who have tried treatment and had been unsuccessful. The Urban Initiative, a unique alliance of networked agencies, seeks to reach these people so that balance and stability may be restored to their lives. The aim of the program is to engage, motivate and support those served so that they can adopt a healthy daily routine, gain employment, and reconnect with lost relationships and opportunities

"The Taking Initiative Center is a place to foster dialogue about what the next steps may be for recovery. It is also a place where people can safely talk with their peers, consult with counselors, and just get away from their normal daily routine. Individuals can make use of free laundry facility, coffee shop, computer classes, recovery groups and extensive literature."
