Stubbs Dental Makes a Difference with The Other Side Academy

  • October 26, 2023

At Stubbs Dental Implant Center, we believe that dentistry goes beyond creating beautiful smiles; it's about transforming lives. That's why we're thrilled to share the remarkable impact of our monthly donation program, which channels a portion of the proceeds from full arch dental implant procedures towards supporting local organizations that are actively making positive changes in our community. This month, we're proud to announce our donation of $1,650 to The Other Side Academy, a public non-profit organization that offers a beacon of hope to those who have struggled with addiction, homelessness, and criminal behavior.

The Other Side Academy is more than just a rehabilitation center; it's a transformative community where individuals with histories of addiction and criminal behavior find the support and resources they need to turn their lives around. Founded on a model that's been refined over 70 years, The Other Side Academy embodies the power of experienced peers in the recovery process.

In this "classic therapeutic community," participants, referred to as "students," provide solutions to each other's challenges, drawing on shared experiences rather than relying solely on therapists or medical professionals. This unique approach allows for a level of understanding and empathy that is often missing in traditional rehabilitation settings.

One of the most distinctive aspects of The Other Side Academy is the absence of clinical therapists, doctors, or counselors. Instead, the community is led by individuals who have walked the same path as the students, demonstrating through their own lives that transformation is possible. These faculty members are living proof of the program's efficacy, having overcome their own struggles and emerged as beacons of hope for others.

The Other Side Academy offers a comprehensive two-year residential program, followed by a 6-month transitional program. This extended timeframe allows for a deep, lasting transformation, providing vocational training, education, peer counseling, mentoring, leadership training, and transitional services. By addressing not only the immediate needs of the individuals but also providing tools for long-term success, The Other Side Academy sets its students on a path towards self-sufficiency and meaningful contributions to society.

By choosing Stubbs Dental Implant Center, you're not only investing in your oral health, but you're also becoming a part of something bigger. Our commitment to supporting organizations like Pretty Tough Ladies is a testament to our dedication to the well-being of our community. Together, we're creating a ripple effect of positive change, one smile at a time.

Join us in this journey of giving back. When you choose us for your dental needs, you're not just choosing a practice; you're choosing to be a force for good in your local community. Together, we can make a lasting impact and bring hope to those who need it most.

Thank you for being a part of this meaningful endeavor. Together, we're shaping a brighter future for all.
