RECOVERY AND TRANSITIONAL HOUSING
Beacon House employs 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 men have completed inpatient treatment or an equivalent while incarcerated. Most of our clients come from The Brook Hospital, Landmark, Praxis, Seven Counties, Recovery Works, Peace Hospital, Wooded Glen, Drug Court, and LMDC.
We provide recovery housing with wraparound services to support Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment, case management, and life skills development and employment.
Our daily programming includes intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), individual and family counseling, 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, an in-house mentor program, community meetings and organized volunteerism in the community.
The Beacon House differs from most recovery housing in the region by providing a high level of support, structure, and accountability, while still allowing residents to maintain employment and develop and maintain connections in the larger community. Additionally, we blend the social model with clinical treatment services to give residents access to a variety of recovery support services. Recovery housing falls on a spectrum of structure, accountability and recovery services. Some recovery houses offer shelter and a sober living environment only, while others have property, visitation and employment restrictions and treatment requirements. Each recovery residence has a different level of support, and learning about their culture and services will help you choose the right one.
We bridge the gap between acute treatment or incarceration and returning home by providing housing, peer support, and treatment to help men transition to independent living in long-term recovery.
