The Butte SPIRIT Home for men recovering from alcohol or drug disorders was barely up and running a few years ago when the questions started coming.
“It wasn’t two or three months after the men’s home was operational that people were asking Sean and I when we were going to open one for women,” said Demetrius Fassas, who co-founded the Butte SPIRIT Center with Sean Wisner.
If a state license comes through as expected, the answer is soon, possibly as early as November or December.
“I don’t foresee any roadblocks to receiving that license,” Fassas said. “It’s just a matter of timing and coordination with the department that’s providing it.”
Wisner, Fassas and many other supporters have been working toward a Butte SPIRIT Home for women for nearly two years. Their organization’s board recently purchased a former assisted-living home for future residents.
