Alpha Recovery is a supportive, structured living environment for addicts who are new in their recovery. Clients are subject to nightly curfews, random urine screens, and are required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings on a regular basis, in addition to weekly groups and individual sessions at Alpha Recovery. Clients are required to work, unless there is a physical or mental disability, which prevents them from doing so.
The formation of the Alpha Recovery program is a culmination of ideas and
Alpha Recovery recognizes that the disease of addiction affects the addict physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and that the success of any program of recovery lies in daily commitment to a twelve-step program. Alpha Recovery believes that regular attendance and application of the spiritual principles of these programs are the foundations for that success. The Alpha Recovery staff is made up of people who are professional treatment providers and/or recovering addicts, themselves. We are available to clients to help in teaching the twelve steps and the practical application of these principles in daily living. The programs of A.A. and N.A. teach us that there will come a time when nothing will stand between the addict and a drink or a drug but his relationship with his Higher Power. We, therefore, encourage spiritual growth.

The agency's residential program includes a 26-bed transitional supportive housing resource designed to accommodate homeless clients who are engaged in our substance abuse treatment services.
Residential Recovery Phase I
Our intensive faith-based, recovery program for alcohol and drug abuse usually last 6-7 months in the first phase depending on the needs of the resident. This structured, home environment has 24 hour supervision and constant monitoring. Behavioral stabilization, criminal thinking, group therapy, along with our principle based twelve step workshops help our residents learn to enjoy life without substance use, and learn to develop true and healthy relationships. In addition to our intense program we promote personal responsibility, we address the physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being of our residents.
Transitional Living Phase II
The great advantage of transitional living is that the resident can share any obstacles she encounters in the real world that normally might trigger her to relapse. Being able to return to a safe transitional housing environment where she gets love and support can greatly guide her in how to work through life without alcohol or substance abuse.
Residents who have worked Steps 1-7 will continue to receive one-on-one counseling. If needed and if the family is agreeable we assist with finding a suitable family counselor. We offer life skills training, problem solving, and personal development along with other vital necessities.
Setting healthy boundaries and finding peace and confidence within self is critical within the transitional living process! Sobriety is a life long management process and that is the truth. Unfortunately, many residents leave Recovery Homes thinking they are cured and that they can return to life as if they were never an alcoholic or drug addict. This is a sad reality that almost always leads to relapse. Accepting the truth and helping our residents find passion and purpose is imperative to self-worth and happiness.
We at HAVEN HOMES hold the core beliefs that “alcoholism is a spiritual malady” and recovery is the process of “one alcoholic helping another” to achieve sobriety by developing a conscious contact with a Higher Power through working the 12 steps as outlined in the Big Book of Alcoholic Anonymous.
Second Chance is a sober living program whose focus is on guidance and support for men and women in early recovery.
Second Chance is an Atlanta halfway house committed to providing a safe, structured community for our residents to learn accountability as they transition into everyday life.
We are a sober living program based on the model of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are, in our opinion, the only proven method of establishing long term sobriety. The Steps emphasize honesty, integrity, openness, willingness, spirituality and responsibility for one’s own actions; with support from others who have gone or are going through the same process.

Trinity House-Big Bethel, a 36-bed transitional housing and rehabilitation program, is much more than a shelter – it’s a life line for men to turn their lives around. Trinity House-Big Bethel restores hope by providing support services leading back to employment, income, and recovery.
Before a man can become a resident, he must first complete an outside addiction treatment program to ensure he’s clean and sober. To promote continued recovery, residents are given ongoing support to deal with issues of addiction through meetings, workshops, and one-on-one therapy with Certified Addiction Counselors.
We meet with each resident to consider his overall state of affairs — income, employment, health, education, and life skills — and then work to alleviate any barriers to independence and success as a citizen. Ongoing assessments help us determine if new skills or additional resources are needed for the resident to become self-sufficient, including the requirement to put 30% of his income toward rent.
A unique brotherhood exists between staff and residents of Trinity House-Big Bethel that is enduring, unshakable, and integral to the success of this program. The majority of staff members are graduates themselves, so they have virtually walked in the shoes of those they serve. This shared experience allows for a deep and true connection between those who have “been there” and those who are on their journey to recovery.

Discovery House is a recovery residence for those participating in drug treatment or who have recently graduated from treatment and are entering back into the work force.
We provide specific services that can complement ongoing drug treatment and prepare the client for the eventual return to life. Our clients learn to live life again by participating in group recreational activities and their own day to day life functions such as shopping and cooking. They learn to help each other and to receive help in return – all as part of the therapeutic community.
Communication is necessary for full recovery and is vital for life success. Often times we find that addiction began with the inability to communicate. Unable to address life problems with communication, the individual attempted to solve these problems by numbing themselves with drugs or alcohol. Communication can solve almost anything in life. We encourage our clients to communicate freely about their successes, worries or problems. They learn that conflicts with family members, staff or other clients are addressed through communication.

As The Way residents move to private homes, new recovering renters will transition to the apartments. The Way will continue to serve additional women and their families as they grow and recover, one woman, one life, one day at a time.
