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.
