Our residential house is located at 2701 Walnut Street, Harrisburg, PA (Penbrook Borough). It was built in the 1900's & has beautiful stained glass windows. We have the ability to accommodate 16 adult men with a safe, secure, alcohol & drug free living environment. Our house is a place of peace, serenity & spiritual growth, where integrity & principles of AA/NA reign supreme.
Our residents can stay as long as they want, as long as they abide by Our House Rules and Code of Conduct. We highly recommend a minimum of at least 6 months stay to assist them in getting back on their feet. A stable, alcohol and drug free living environment enables them to sustain abstinence from the drug or alcohol that previously controlled their life.
Our goal is to help change the course of an addict's life through self-discovery and practicing of recovery skills in the real world. By providing housing in a safe & comfortable environment with support, guidance, nurturing and structure. We feel this is a necessity for transitioning from addiction to a true sober independent life.
Our home is structured in a way that avoids some of the limitations of halfway houses. We have single & multiple resident rooms, as well as multiple bathrooms.
The essential characteristics include:
Alcohol & drug free living environment for individuals attempting to abstain from alcohol & drugs.
No formal treatment services but either mandated or strongly encouraged attendance at 12-step self help groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
Required compliance with house rules, such as maintaining abstinence, paying rent &/or other fees, participating in house chores and attending house meetings.
The resident is responsible for financing rent & other costs, remaining law abiding and contributing to the community.
