It is a well known fact that people who are just released from prison usually have a tough time reentering society because of the stigma of having done jail time. Without the proper support system around them, they will more than likely go back to prison because of a lack of education and life skills that could help them get back on their feet.

That's why the Restoration House and Reformation Road have been created by licensed therapist Thaddeus Henderson M.S., LCDC. After spending time in prison himself, Mr. Henderson became a licensed therapist and has committed his work towards helping those who are reentering society from prison and families dealing with addiction problems.

Mr. Henderson with the help of others are opening up "Restoration House", a 10-acre complex on the outskirts of Killeen to help families and other struggling with these issues. Along with their program "Reformation Road" ,they offer counseling, therapy and other methods to help families get back together and break the cycle of recidivism and addiction which has plagued families and communities for decades.

Restoration House will be hosting an open house event on Saturday (Oct. 17th) at their location at 14138 Highway 195 South just outside Killeen from Noon until 4:00 PM. They will be offering tours of the complex to the public to check out what they have to offer and how their team of therapists can help your family.

Melz On The MIC recently spoke to Thaddeus Henderson about why he started the program and he also talks about how we can begin to break the cycle.
