Accommodations and Amenities
The Beacon House can accommodate up to 13 residents in shared rooms. The facility is equipped with on-site laundry and a gym as well as common areas with TV. The home is close to AA/NA meetings and public transportation. It also comes with a fully-equipped kitchen that residents use to prepare their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
The house follows a social model, so most of the daily schedule is designed and run by the clients themselves. Throughout their stay, residents are expected to attend regular recovery meetings, have a job or volunteer and abide by the house’s behavioral contract. Stays generally range from six to 10 months, though residents are welcome to stay for up to a year. As a result of state regulations, those who are sex offenders, arsonists or who have a history of assault cannot be admitted.
Its parent company, ServiceNet, also operates a nearby Beacon House for Women that offers a parallel program. It also offers outpatient treatment that can be attended as primary care or an aftercare option, in addition to a wide range of community-oriented programs such as mental health counseling, vocational services, shelter and housing assistance.
Overall, Beacon House for Men offers a fairly hands-off approach to early recovery; using peer support, 12-step integration and motivation for independent living as a foundation. Residents take a big hand in running the house, which allows them to develop many of the necessary skills to live a stable and sober life. For men in the area seeking an affordable transitional program, Beacon House for Men is a solid choice.
