Focus on Lyme
The typical Lyme patient cannot afford to travel cross country to seek out care from a Lyme specialist. Nor the out-of-pocket costs associated with IV antibiotics and cash pay office visits. Many patients are so ill and tired they cannot advocate for themselves in an insurance system that does not recognize their condition.
Focus On Lyme was created to help all Lyme patients by making effective change within the diagnosis and management of this disease so patients maintain a quality of life.

Hope Women’s Center
Our Women’s Resource Room offers women an opportunity to use their earned education and mentoring “client cash” (points) to purchase needed items such as toiletries, clothing, diapers, baby items, food, household items, and utility assistance.
In addition to our education, mentoring, and material resource programs, our Phoenix Center also has a children’s program for children ages 0-5 while their mothers are participating in center programs.
We are always looking to connect! We pride ourselves in letting the recovery community be able to express themselves through the Sober Nation Blog. The blog is a way for us to spread experience, strength and hope among each other, and hopefully help someone who may be struggling with addiction.
