- Residential aftercare program for men who have achieved a beginning level of ending their chemical dependency.
- Provides a clean, safe, therapeutic environment in which to live as residents adjust to a chemically free lifestyle. Beacon House serves as a transition period between treatment and returning home
- Chemical (drugs and alcohol) require an aggressive program that concentrates on the physiological, emotional, and spiritual needs of the resident. The Beacon House provides a safe environment in which a resident can begin that journey to a life that is “happy, joyous, and free.”
- Each resident works with staff to develop an individualized plan to meet his recovery needs. These needs are met through one-on-one counseling, group interaction, and 12-Step meetings.
- Beacon House helps residents acquire coping skills necessary to live a productive, chemically-free life by:
- Developing employment skills
- Improving communication skills
- Instruction in living a financially responsible life (“Self supporting through our own contributions”)
- Developing self-reliance
- Focusing on necessary foundations for a life of abstinence one day at a time
- Encourages residents to begin developing support group for continuing recovery
