The Framework

Making Whole is an addiction recovery process built into the framework of a traditional apprenticeship program.

Men are taught the creative processРa method of problem solving that is practical, relatable, tangible, scientific, and spiritual. Making Whole is built on a simple premise: the mentor/student relationship overpowers the ego barriers of addiction. Once these barriers are broken, the work of building studio-quality furniture provides a perfect metaphor for sustainable recovery and a successful life. In short, Making Whole embodies the two things that are indispensable for someone new to recovery:  intimacy and direction.
