Tellurian is pleased to announce the plan to provide and manage a sober living home for men who struggle with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. After successfully opening a sober living home for women in early 2018, Tellurian has received an overwhelming demand to offer this same resource for men.
The house would be named in memory of Jeremy Andrew Richard Likwarz, who courageously battled mental illness for most of his life. With his love of sports also came many injuries, which led to pain medication prescriptions and later addiction. He fought for sustained recovery with everything he had, but the disease continued to take over and the resources available to him were not enough. After his passing, his mother Patti Likwarz started a movement in her son’s memory called Speak Up for Jeremy. Patti has worked tirelessly to help local affected families who have lost their loved one and those currently struggling with addiction and mental health share their stories, educate, raise awareness, affect change, and end the stigma.
Tellurian recently united with Speak Up for Jeremy to explore the possibility of providing sober transitional living for men like Jeremy. Modeled after Tellurian’s first sober living home, Jeremy’s Place would provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment for men primarily transitioning out of residential treatment. There is a clear vision in place which is supported by a comprehensive business plan, capital campaign, staffing model and oversight, and programming structure.
In order to make Jeremy’s Place a reality, we need your help. Your tax deductible gift will help purchase a home for men transitioning from residential inpatient treatment back to the community. They are so very vulnerable at this point in their recovery and this is such an important, lifesaving resource for men just like Jeremy. Please join us in this fight and help us open more doors!
