Alexander’s House provides a sober home for addiction rehabilitation
Alex Reisinger fought an opiate addiction for years before passing away from an accidental overdose at the age of 23.
His parents, Al and Laurel Reisinger, have opened Alexander’s House, a sober living home in Saskatoon.
One thing they discovered is how little support they say there is in Saskatchewan for people with addictions.
In this interview with Joelle Tomlinson, the Reisinger’s discuss Alex’s struggle with his opiate addiction and how they hope the sober home will help people with addictions make the transition back to everyday life.
