Charlie’s Place began in 1965 as The Coastal Bend Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Center, a small 24 hour alcoholics’ halfway house with a 12 step program. Check out our History
The Center earned the nickname Charlie’s Place in honor of one of the founders, Charlie Acken, whose hard work and dedication motivated others to help or be helped.
