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
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
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.
