Our Comprehensive Residential Program serves those men and women age 18 and older facing life-controlling issues such as addiction. The complete program is 12 months in length and conducted at the Hope Center in Hampton Roads. Graduates of the program may also participate in the ReEntry phase for 3-6 months. This allows them to return to society, get on their feet, and have a strong support system around them.
Because we know 1 in 3 households are affected by addiction, and addiction impacts the whole family, Faith Recovery offers Family Enrichment. Through educational classes, counseling referrals, family member group sessions, and family activities, we want to facilitate the healing process in the entire family.
Phase 1 (Foundation)
Residents participate in daily recovery classes, spiritual development classes, peer recovery groups, 12 step classes and groups, individual counseling, recreation, and residential housing (room and board).
Phase 2 (Application)
Residents are afforded an opportunity to practically apply what they learned in phase one by participating in real world work scenarios and continued residential housing with responsibility and relationship building. Residents develop a strong work ethic by working in one of our micro-enterprises (thrift store, construction, event staffing, local moving). They also develop employer relationship skills, customer service skills, along with job skills pertaining to their area of work. There are also required meeting attendance and a personal study curriculum that provides more in depth inner reflection, along with an opportunity to develop the time management and self-discipline to work a full day and also making the time for continued spiritual development and recovery meetings which are critical to long term success.
Phase 3 (Transition)
Residents continue to receive housing (room and board) while beginning their transition back into the community. During this phase, we assist residents in employment search, resume writing, and the job application process. There are also financial management classes, continued spiritual development, and recovery meeting requirements. Our residents gain employment, they go to work while continuing to reside in our facility for continued support and accountability, including curfews and random drug testing. There are also internship opportunities within our program.
Phase 4 (Aftercare)
Residents make the move from living in our facility to going home. They continue to maintain their employment, begin living their life, but also have some support and accountability. There is a weekly meeting with our Aftercare counselor, as well as other recovery meeting requirements and random testing.
The devastation of drug addiction and alcoholism is not limited to the addict. In fact, in most cases, when the addict decides to get help they go into treatment while the family is left to pick up the pieces. It is our goal to bring the family into the recovery process. Through educational classes, counseling referrals, family member group sessions, and family activities, we want to facilitate the healing process in the entire family.
