Anchor House is a Faith-based Intensive Residential Treatment program Licensed by OASAS (Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services). The duration of our program varies from 12-18 months (or less), based on individual progress. We are one program with two locations and expanding. Our fifty bed men’s facility and twenty-eight bed women’s facility offers gender specific curricula at each site. Anchor House also provides treatment services to pregnant women on a case by case basis.
Our staff cover the spectrum of knowledge and expertise in the field of substance use treatment. Our team’s credentials range from CASAC, CASAC-T, LMSW, LCSW, LMHC, RN, LPN, CRC, Recovery Coach, Peer Advocates and other Human Service professionals. In addition to the wealth of education and training our team has, we also provide internships for BSW, MSW, CRC, MPA, CASAC-T’s and Chaplin’s.
Anchor House endeavors to create a journey for our clients and not a destination once they complete the program. We have an alumni and mentoring program that allows former clients an opportunity to stay connected and give back to the residential community. This concept is introduced while in treatment through weekly community service projects that foster a desire to help. Our aftercare and wrap around referral services provide support as the clients return to their families and community.
Anchor House recognizes that Substance Use can lead to involvement with the legal system and thereby affecting the individual and their families. Anchor House therefore partners with law enforcement agencies (i.e., drug court, alternatives to incarceration, probation and parole). Our partnerships include but are not limited to Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime (TASC), Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) as well as a range of foster care agencies to ensure successful reunification of families.
Our spiritual component sets us apart because we provide the opportunity to learn how to live as a spiritual being not defined by our human experiences. Our spiritual curriculum (optional) incorporates activities and workshops teaching practical application for spiritual living.
