My loved one has completed inpatient treatment and understands that aftercare support is important to continued success.
To promote lasting recovery, St. Joseph’s operates two Guest Houses; one in Poughkeepsie, the other location is in Schenectady. The Houses provide living arrangements for recovering men, 18 and over, who are looking to transition to independent living. The residences provide safe, supportive, home-like environments with structure, continuous staff monitoring, and frequent random drug/alcohol testing.
The length of stay is a minimum of 90 days, with options for extended stays. Residents are expected to gain employment, receive outpatient treatment, and participate in community service. A key component of the Guest House experience is the developing of each resident’s independent living plan.
