Comprehensive Relapse Prevention Program: Two Components … One Objective… Self Sufficiency
With a focus on transforming individuals into productive members of the community, The Fellowship Home provides a two-year Comprehensive Relapse Prevention Program consisting of a nine-month residential component followed by 15 months of aftercare. The residential and aftercare components of our two-year program help recovering men achieve self-sufficiency. This is accomplished by focusing on remaining abstinent, tending to physical and mental health issues, personal finances, legal and social welfare issues, problem solving, education and vocational needs.
Residence At The Fellowship Home
The Fellowship Home provides a structured residential setting that offers opportunities for growth and change in a supportive atmosphere. The home accommodates ten residents and two live-in staff. Residents maintain total abstinence, develop therapeutic bonds of fellowship with each other, undergo individual and group therapy facilitated by licensed substance abuse counselors, meet regularly with a certified case manager, attend daily 12-step meetings, find full-time employment, and meet regularly with an experienced budget counselor. Residents also participate in a multi-tasked phase-movement program, which measures progress towards self-sufficiency. Each resident progresses at his own pace. Responsibility and freedom increase as they accomplish established goals.
The aftercare component of our program provides clients who graduate from residency with a wide range of case-management and counseling services to support ongoing sobriety and life change. This includes regular group and individual sessions that focus on relapse prevention and skills training, with emphasis on personal responsibility, coping with emotions and building healthy relationships. Aftercare clients receive comprehensive assessments to identify their particular needs and develop person-centered plans.
The Alumni Association
The Fellowship Home Alumni Association was created to support all former residents. We host an annual reunion each September. The reunion provides an opportunity not only to celebrate our success, but to extend help to anyone in need. It also provides an opportunity for alumni to “give back” by sharing their experience and strength with current residents.
