TRANSITIONAL LIVING MODEL
Beacon House employees two live-in resident managers, one senior resident manager, a life skills coach, a case manager with a master’s degree in social work, in addition to our administrative staff.
We are the next step on the recovery continuum of care after an individual has received acute inpatient detox and/or has completed a 28-day chemical dependency residential treatment program or an equivalent while incarcerated. Most of our clients come from The Brook Hospital, Centerstone’s ARC, Recovery Works, Our Lady of Peace, and Landmark, HIP, SAP, Drug Court and Jefferson County Jail.
We provide shelter with wraparound services for treatment, case management, and employment.
Our daily programming includes intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), individual and family counseling at The Morton Center, access to a psychiatrist and general healthcare provider with specialization in addictions, a Vivitrol program, life skills course, weekly case management meeting, daily 12 step meetings, meetings with sponsor and in-house mentor program, community meetings and organized volunteer/service work.
Transitional Living, Sober Living, and Halfway Houses fall on a spectrum of structure and services. Some halfway houses offer shelter and minimal supervision, while others require residents to give up their jobs, cell phones and stay on site for 90 days. The Beacon House differs from most models in the region because we blend the social model of organizations like The Healing Place with the clinical treatment services of a Behavioral Health Service Organization (BHSO).
We bridge the gap between acute treatment/incarceration and returning home by providing shelter and treatment to help create not only sober men but productive and engaged citizens.
