Althouse continued, “EDI’s certified recovery specialists have years of experience in assessing an individual’s recovery capital, identifying goals – and strategies to reach those goals – through the development of an individualized recovery plan. EDI will provide individuals with additional support and help connect with other community resources and assist with safe recovery housing, family reunification, employment, medication assisted treatment, licensed counseling, mental & physical health resources, and signing up for public assistance benefits.”

EDI and Atonement entered a memorandum of understanding in January 2023 to sustain and expand recovery support services for the local recovery community of Berks County. The community center is a pillar of the Berks County recovery community where hundreds of people use the community center weekly to build a foundation and sustain their recovery from substance use disorders.

“EDI is eager to complement this effort by offering free recovery support services to anyone who desires,” stated EDI’s Executive Director Scott Althouse.

The community center is the former borough hall building for Wyomissing. Since at least 1985, Atonement Lutheran Church has invited various community organizations to host meetings and support groups at the community center.

“Serving the local recovery community is a vital ministry of Atonement,” stated Deacon Tom Yenser. “Through this new partnership with Easy Does It, Inc., we can ensure the community center will be here for use by the recovery community for years to come,” stated Deacon Yenser.
