Opportunity House recognizes the need for an alternative to prison for    non-violent drug and/or alcohol offenders.  We offer an opportunity to those who sincerely want a sober way of life.

 

Many of our clients come to us from the judicial system and one of our goals is to show each individual the way to establish a life after the jailhouse while remaining sober.   We offer an environment free from drugs, alcohol and other negative influences associated with the disease of addiction.  Since we are a non-medical facility, we can accept only those who have the ability to care for themselves and are employable.  We introduce our residents to a new set of values that will lead them to a more productive and responsible lifestyle. 

 

We demand three things of each resident:

1)  He must participate in an AA/NA program.

2)  He must stay sober.

3)  And, he must maintain employment.

 

When just one individual succeeds, we all benefit.  We have introduced a productive and responsible citizen back into society.
