“God is the only way to sobriety,” he said.

That is the same motto Plauche has maintained in the 15 years of the mission.

“I was blessed really,” he said. “When I wanted to get sober, I had the wherewithal to take some time and really get myself together.”

He got a job, but found himself “very unfulfilled.”

“I had a vision, some would say a moment of clarity, of devoting my life to service and being happy, joyous and free,” so he bought a 10-acre plot in Santa Rosa Beach and started Haven House. He has since been giving others suffering from addiction the same opportunity to be happy and free.

The entirety of the Haven House mission is funded by donations and money collected through thrift store sales.

It is easy for everyone to help further the mission, as there is an item in every price range.
