Men’s Residential Program

A safe place to get well

 

In our 30-bed unit for men with substance use disorder, we employ evidence-based medical and therapeutic practices. Cognitive behavioral therapy encourages the client to examine his beliefs and preconceived notions. This therapy method addresses the whole person and the situation he is coming from. That may include housing, family, employment, health problems, and other issues that contribute to addiction.

 

Medical treatment is supervised by a full-time, on-site physician and 24-hour nurses trained in addiction recovery. Sometimes medication is needed to ease a client away from addiction; treatment is also needed for the toll addiction takes on overall health. When our clients need medical assessments and treatments from specialists outside Homeward Bound’s treatment facility, we help with appointments and transportation.

 

Every day, our trained counselors and peer support coaches guide clients through life skills training, recovery planning, and drug and alcohol education with individual and group counseling. Twelve-step meetings are part of the program, and clients are encouraged to continue attending after discharge. Case management includes assistance with transitional housing, community resources and outpatient services.

 

We engage a number of community resources including the Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA), Oxford Housing, The Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), Cenikor, Inspiring Men, and The Council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
