The philosophy of Cronin Home is that all persons deserve to live with dignity, be treated with respect, no matter what their physical disabilities or illness. Because of the symptoms of the illness of chemical dependency, many people suffering from this disease lose the support and/or contact with their families and significant others. Their lives become unmanageable and they often lose jobs. As they progress into chronic chemical dependency they lose any ability to maintain self respect and a healthy lifestyle. Cronin Home seeks to provide a home atmosphere with peer support and an understanding and caring staff. The aim is not specifically to demand sobriety but to recognize occasional inebriation as part of the illness. Our supportive and caring atmosphere assists them to maintain, to the best of their ability, a sober and healthy lifestyle. Our doors are always open to persons no matter how often they succumb to their disease. The philosophy of this facility is to provide a sober, safe, accessible, supportive environment for residents, staff and visitors. The living environment at Cronin Home helps to reduce and control hazards and risks for maintaining safe, sober living conditions for all residents.
