The clients we serve are individuals needing long-term, residential treatment. These individuals are those, who because of their negative lifestyle and their abuse of drugs, such as: heroin, amphetamines, cocaine, alcohol, barbiturates, etc., need to establish within themselves a new emotional structure in order to deal with life on a realistic level. In essence, the target population includes individuals whose behavior and/or chronic substance abuse has caused them to alienate themselves from society and induce pain and hardship on their families and friends.
Clients may be voluntarily or involuntarily, i.e., any county agency may refer clients to the facility, clients may be sent to us as a condition of parole or probation, or may come in on their own violation. The Genesis House is not a locked facility.
