Farmingdale, New Jersey 07727
Founded in 2012, CFC Loud n Clear Foundation 501c3 is a grassroots New Jersey registered nonprofit Recovery Community Organization (RCO) providing a model relapse prevention program that supports all pathways to recovery through peer driven and operated programs. CFC is committed to helping individuals and families struggling with addiction find, maintain, and strengthen their recovery through peer-based support & programs.
“I always describe addiction as more of an infection than a disease. It starts off as a wound that isn’t taken care of properly whether that is a chemical imbalance, a belief system that is irrational, unresolved trauma or the inability to cope with conditions. A person finds a substance or behavior that fixes the symptoms but not the problem and the wound becomes infected (addiction). Addiction Treatment is where one goes to clean that wound out of the infection and then recovery, community, and relapse prevention are the protocol in order to finally heal that wound. Once all our wounds are healed, we need to maintain these practices so that any new wounds do not become infected.” – Daniel Regan, Founder
CFC believes in multiple pathways and offers weekly Refuge, 12-Step, SMART, Faith, & Gender Specific meetings that are free and open to the public.

Participant or Stakeholder Testimonial/ Quote:
“CFC Loud and Clear has been the solution to my problem. Having attempted recovery several times before I had learned a lot but there was still quite a lot missing. When I came to CFC I decided to take advantage of all it had to offer: attend all of their SMART meetings, move into their sober-living, obtain employment through their TKGO program, serve the community at outreach events and have a blast at their go to sober outings! Without having any fun, recovery would only seem like work. I can honestly say that I love my new sober lifestyle. CFC saved my life.”
