Carroll Institute—originally the Community Committee on Alcohol Abuse—is a foundation created in 1971 by a group of concerned community members in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Today, it offers outpatient treatment, recovery resources, a sober community and a halfway house. Carroll Institute’s transitional living—known as the Arch Halfway House—provides comfortable, safe homes as well as structure for individuals seeking a sober environment in which to begin a new life.
Accommodations and Amenities
Arch Halfway House offers two adjacent gender-specific sober homes, each accommodating 40 clients. Men and women sleep two per room and are each given a twin-sized bed, desk and small cabinet. All bathrooms are communal. Each home also has a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen where clients are free to make their own meals.
The program is typically six months in length, but residents can stay longer if needed. There are no structured recreational activities but Carroll Institute offers information and referrals for recreational services in the surrounding area.
Rules and Regulations
Although the Arch does not have strict rules or regulations that residents must follow—there is no curfew and clients do not need to be attending school or employed—clients must be involved in a treatment plan if they are not enrolled in the Carroll Institute outpatient program. The Arch Halfway House program also offers CBT-based group sessions held at the Carroll Institute building three times a week for three hours a day, totaling nine hours per week. Individual and family therapy sessions are also scheduled.
In addition to Arch Halfway House and the outpatient program, Carroll Institute offers a variety of other services including a DUI program, treatment for incarcerated individuals, aftercare and an intensive prevention program.
Carroll Institute is currently building a large, new sober-living home for the Arch program that will house all clients under one roof. The new transitional living facility will feature a large kitchen where a chef will provide three meals a day.
Arch Halfway House provides gender-specific transitional living homes for men and women in need of post-treatment sober support. With a mix of CI outpatient clients as well as newly sober members of the Sioux Falls community, the group therapy creates a supportive sober fellowship.
