Genesis House Celebrates 40 years of Service

In Recovery, you keep what you've got by giving it away.
At the Genesis House, Inc., We are taught these principles and this is our Daily Prayer:

Please let me first & always examine myself
Let me be honest and truthful
Let me seek and assume responsibility
Let me understand, rather than be understood
Let me trust and have faith in myself & my fellow man
Let me love rather than be loved
Let me give rather than receive.

Many Thanks to our Generous Contributers
We wouldn't be a success without your contributions.

Program Mission and General Information

The Genesis House, Inc. was founded in May of 1972. The initial formation of the organization was based on the idea of providing a re-entry program for other residential treatment program graduates. By 1974 it became apparent that treatment services were needed and the program secured federal funding through the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to provide long term treatment. This continues to be the programs primary purpose today.

At present, the program has four facilities, located adjacent to each other, in the semi-rural out-skirts of Vallejo. We provide long term residential treatment to men and women who require a complete life-style and environmental change. We offer twenty-four care in a highly structured drug, alcohol and tobacco free residential treatment setting aimed at assisting clients in becoming totally abstinent and self-supporting. We make use of treatment concepts, such as image building, self reliance training, decision making, peer pressure, one to one counseling, group therapy, and frequent individual evaluations.

Each client is required to work their way through a series of three developmental phases, each designed to augment the individuals personal and emotional growth. The later phases of the program emphasize career guidance, vocational and educational rehabilitative services by offering after-care and sober living phases to assist individuals in readjusting to the community. The major goal of the program is to graduate rehabilitated, independent individuals who have gained the necessary emotional stability and maturity in order to become productive, self-reliant members of society.

Clients Served

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.
