The Program

By addressing the holistic needs of former offenders within compassionate recovery communities, we are working for a future where the cycle of recidivism is broken, where families are reunited with their fathers and sons, and where are our cities are safer.

And it all starts with a safe place to belong.

Our basic program lasts for 90 days, though residents have the option of staying longer if that course of action is deemed best through collaboration with our case managers.  Aphesis House requires that each resident attend at least one outside recovery meeting or religious service each week while in the program.

The 6 core tenets of our program help men, not only get by, but thrive in society. 

Incoming residents receive:

Basic needs
Shelter, food, and water in a safe, sober environment.

Psychological needs
A supportive, stable family network.

Clinical support
Access to a medication, mental health services, and relapse prevention services.

Case management
Weekly 1:1 sessions to set goals and accountability. Access to social services and guidance on taking the steps to establish and legitimize oneself in the community through things like proper identification.

Life skills
Guidance on establishing a home, building healthy relationships, securing steady employment, and more.

Financial empowerment
Guidance on job retention, credit repair, budgeting, and saving for the future.

Current residents are provided with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to navigate through the real world as civilized and renewed citizens. Aphesis House equips the men with essential life skills in the areas of job readiness, financial literacy, and housing.
