Flipping Addiction: New Isaiah House Program Helps Addicts Recover

Buying a house with a few problems and then “flipping” it into something spectacular has been the basis for several successful shows on the Home and Garden Network. The Isaiah House Recovery Center hope to copy that success with one difference: they are trying to flip lives as well.

Today, Jason Koppel, a graduate of the Isaiah House long-term program, is living the life he’s always wanted. But it was a long and dark path to get there. After battling with a substance abuse problems since high school, Koppel has been sober for 17 months.

“I had tried to get clean a couple times with minimal success, because I still thought I was in control,” he said. “I came to Isaiah House pretty broken.”

Koppel said he would stay clean for months at a time  but would eventually relapse.

“I just couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong, why I couldn’t stay clean,” he said.

He said Isaiah House’s spiritual approach is what helped him stay clean.
