Ten16’s name has a special history.
Back in the 1970s, the first residents of our new halfway house wanted a name that promoted anonymity and protected privacy. Inspiration came from a local sheriff serving on the founding task force.
At the time, the police used “ten codes” in their radio communication to road patrol officers. A “10-16” meant there was an open door at the scene. The street address of our recovery house just so happened to have that same number.
So it became the 1016 Home—always having an open door to anyone wanting a life of recovery from alcohol and drugs.
Today, we’ve grown beyond that single recovery house, but our spirit and commitment haven’t changed at all. If you are wondering how to stop drinking or using and are ready to live a freer life, we’re here for you.
