Homeless and on heroin, Charlette needed a fresh start. But she didn’t expect much when she landed at CCC’s Blackburn Center. That all changed in a matter of hours. With access to addiction treatment, primary care, a safe place to live and peers to support her — all under one roof — Charlette’s transition into recovery was smoother than she imagined. Having housing and health care in the same place is “huge,” she says. “You saw me — all of me — within the first day.”
