Harvest of Hope

No turning Back Inc

N o Turning Back is an organization devoted to providing supportive housing for recovering addicts who may have no other place to turn to when they begin their journey. Founder and President of No Turning Back, Robert Carter, Jr., has seen the incarceration rate and recidivism of recovering addicts go down since he turned his life towards helping them. One method No Turning Back uses to treat addicts is their Supportive Housing Program, providing recovery houses for addicts who may have nowhere else to go. “Supportive Housing provides a safe and clean environment for those who have decided to change their lives,” he said. Carter’s oversight of the housing program helps bring hope to those who feel like their addiction is untreatable. Recovery housing allows a recovering addict to treat their addiction in a safe environment. Addicts may not have a supportive community, or may even be homeless due to their

“I, along with a dedicated staff, have seen the lives of men and women change from hopelessness and helplessness to productive members of their families and communities,” he said. “I understand the challenges that come with fighting this disease and how this disease can dictate your behavior and life.” To Carter, an addict seeing someone who has made it can give them the hope they need. He hopes that his story and his organization can help an addict reach recovery when It seems impossible. Carter’s program has not only helped addicts, but it’s always work in progress, with many paths to improvement. His goals for the future is to expand his housing program and base it on a tier.

addiction. Having safe housing and a community dedicated towards their recovery can prevent addicts from relapsing or turning to crime, pushing their sobriety back. Carter’s dedication to helping addicts comes from his own experience. At 15, Carter tried drugs and alcohol for the first time and soon had an addiction to it. For the next 22 years, he struggled with addiction and was at a point suicidal. Through dedication and his faith, he managed to find the strength to recover from over two decades of addiction. “I dropped to my knees and asked God to help me. He did,” he said. Seven years later, Carter had a calling to help those who struggled like he did. According to Carter, God called him to visit his community and help them with their drug addictions, creating No Turning Back. Carter uses his many years as an addict, and what he has learned from his experiences to help those who feel as if there is no hope for recovery.
