What is it?

Stabilization is a community-style transitional housing program for males/identify-as-males who are presently experiencing a substance dependence/use disorder, but are not currently intoxicated and not requiring detoxification services. They are seeking care for their substance use and may be awaiting or in between services on the treatment/recovery continuum. They require rapid, short-term stabilizing housing that includes support in order to move towards their next step on the recovery continuum.

Program Expectations

The Stabilization Housing Program requires active and engaged participation. Participants are expected to:

  • Abstain from all substances for the duration of the program. Smoking cessation is encouraged.

  • Take responsibility for their own journey and work collaboratively with staff to build a self-determined recovery plan.
