Halfway House provides a supportive environment for patients to stabilize their lives, work or advance their education, seek housing, and transition back into society. Halfway house patients receive a minimum of 5 hours per week of substance abuse treatment programming and attend AA or NA support groups. This program is for recovering men and women who are either homeless or do not have a home to return to after primary residential that is suitable to their recovery. The average length of stay is 2 to 3 months.
Residing in a safe and substance-free environment is an important step in the recovery process. ASAC provides the opportunity to ease slowly back into your normal environment while continuing to learn how to make better choices.
