Participants of the Men's Residential Center typically spend six months in residence. During the initial phase of treatment, they participate in a highly-structured program which focuses on skill building and the changing of attitudes, behaviors and beliefs that could lead them back to drugs, alcohol and criminal behavior.
The second treatment phase provides participants with opportunities to practice their new skills through vocational training and other pro-social activities, both in and out of the program. They seek housing, employment, reunification with family, build strong outside support systems, and many strengthen their recovery through service work.
After a successful transition back into the community, clients participate in an outpatient aftercare program for six more months.
