FACTS About

 



 Opportunity House, Inc. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opportnity House, Inc. is not a substance abuse treatment facility and does not represent itself as one. Neither detoxification nor substance abuse counseling is offered, but we do recommend other programs locally available, if needed. 

 

There is peer conseling from the House Directors and established residents.  We teach, by example, how to live a happy and content life without the need for drugs and/or alcohol.

 

Our Program is based on:  1) Recovery from drugs and alcohol through      12 Step Programs,  2) Stability through work and,   3) Responsibiity,

Honesty and Accountability learned through Life Skills, Anger Management,

and Parenting Classes. 

 

We do not accept residents whohave a history of violence, child abuse or

molestation.  We do not take in men who we feel would be a danger to our

community.  All residents must be at least 18 years old.

 

Our House Directors are not licensed counselors.  They are also recovering 

from the disease of addiction and most have been through the Opportunity

House Program.



We presently have 19 beds in Phase I and 7 beds in Phase II.

 

An applicant's willingness to change his life is paramount and must be

indicated on his application and during his interview.



Residents are evaluated monthly according to their progress and their

attitude. They must sign off on these reports before they are sent to their

Probation/Parole Officer, Judge ot anyone else who might have jurisdiction

over them.



No one is accepted into the Program who can not work.  Our Program is

supported mainly by those who want sobriety bad enough they are willing

to pay for it without assistance from family, insurance or government funds.

 

Each resident is charged $33.33 per day while in Phase I. This covers room and board,phone, transportation to and from their jobs, meetings and any other appointments which they may have.  This amount is reduced upon them entering Phase II where they will assume more responsiblity for their lives.  We do not offer job training, but we do make it a prioity to help them find gainful employment in our community.
