About our program:

Our program is confidential and voluntary. Men entering the program must be serious about recovery and ready to commit to change.

The program is based on a 6-level course which usually takes about 6 months to complete. Each level is different and deals with various aspects of recovery support. The program is designed to help the addict take responsibility for his actions and grow spiritually and emotionally.

Services offered include one-on-one counseling, group meetings, worship services, bible study courses, GED and literacy classes, peer support and work therapy.

About Transitional program:

After completing the 5-level program, graduate residents are offered the opportunity to take part in the Transitional Living Program. This housing arrangement offers the graduate the opportunity to obtain employment, continue his education, save money and reunited with society while still maintaining the guidance and support of the ARC.
