Show Notes

Join Caroline Beidler, MSW as she talks with the founder of In the Meantime, a recovery residence for women in South Carolina, Tiffany Knight.

Tiffany shares that:

"At In the Meantime, we’ll provide a safe, substance-free recovery residence to bridge the gap, while increasing the likelihood of success on their long-term recovery journey.

I have had an intimate experience with addiction and recovery. As a child of a (now deceased) recovering addict and recovering myself, I will be the first to tell you the journey to recovery is not easy. In 2002, I found myself homeless and all out of options. I had burned every bridge I crossed. 

A piece of my story: I was dropped off at a detox center in 2002. After 7 days of detox I was discharged with the clothes on my back, a bus pass, and one phone call. My phone call was to a Goodwill shelter who had one mat on the floor. I begged them to hold that mat on the floor for me, and I would be there as soon as possible. I started this journey with a mat on the floor and a little bit of hope. Where I have been and where I am now is what motivates my continued sobriety today and provides me the passion and willpower to assist other women in need. 

In 2002 “In the Meantime” was just a dream. Today it is a reality."

Join Caroline as she talks with Tiffany about why recovery housing or access to recovery residences for women is so important for the recovery journey.

You'll also learn some helpful tips for starting a recovery home, like the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) resources, along with how to build trauma-informed and resilience-centered practice into recovery residence programming.

Tiffany will share about her amazing model for women's recovery housing!

“The gift for me is the empowerment of women recovering together.”
