Transition home opens

July 11, 2003

Albany - A transition home for those who are recovering drug addicts and alcoholics is opening in Albany. The New Leaf Transition House wants to help those who are having difficulty getting back on their feet.

The home is being opened by Donna Morse and her family. Donna's sister, Christine Lasker, was a recovering addict who wanted to help others stay clean, but she was murdered. The family didn't want to let her dream die, so Donna started the transition home.

The home will host AA and NA meetings daily for the residents, who will pay $120 per week to stay there.

There is a zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy, and all residents are subject to room searches.

For more information on the home, contact Director Donna Morse at (229) 883-7007.
