CHANGE PROJECT, INC
Don't settle for survive... THRIVE. Focused on rising from the ashes of addiction and thriving in all aspects of life
Laborhood Change Project, Inc is a unique player in the wellness industry, spear headed by Dr. Nicole Labor, taking an innovative approach to providing health and wellness services that focus on reducing the stigma of addiction, educating patients, families and the community. We provide evidence based education and innovative approaches to the treatment of substance use disorders. Substance Use Disorder is a chronic disease that can be managed. But management does not have to be limited to just abstaining from substances. Once the acute addiction is stabilized, individuals with SUD need to focus on applying wellness principles to ALL areas of their lives to improve their life experience and reduce the chances of relapse. LCP believes that all addicts have the potential to rise from the ashes of addiction and soar.
