A southern New Jersey institution since 1993, the Hendricks House Group has been a steadily expanding recovery care facility since its inception. The facility has grown over the years to include three distinct sober living homes. These are the Hendricks House—the flagship location in Vineland with services for men—and the Hansen Houses for Men and Women, situated adjacent to each other in Egg Harbor City. There is also the Reynolds House, a small 10-bed extension facility located next to the Hendricks House.
Accommodations and Amenities
Each of the sober living facilities are laid out similarly; they are large residential homes which include individual and group therapy rooms, exercise facilities, living and common room areas, dining rooms and kitchens as well as outdoor recreation space where clients enjoy free time and family visits. Stays typically last for three to six months.
Both the Hansen House for Men and the Hansen House for Women accommodate up to 30 residents at a time, while the Hendricks House is a 40-bed facility. Clients at each of the homes should expect to share dormitory-style rooms with three to four roommates. Each comes with twin beds, basic furnishings and a communal bathroom. Food is provided by the facility, but residents take care of preparing their own meals.
Since most clients at these facilities are employed or are actively pursuing work, dinner is usually the only communal meal of the day which clients take turns cooking each night. Residents prepare their own breakfasts and usually pack a sandwich for lunch. In addition to sharing dinner cooking responsibilities, clients take turns with various other household chores throughout the week. Since residents participating in the Hendricks House Group program are allowed to leave the facility for work or 12-step meetings, each house provides transportation services. Cell phone use is also heavily restricted during each resident’s stay.
Rules and Regulations
While the Hendricks House Group homes do not offer inpatient care, there is still a higher degree of treatment offered than similar sober living facilities. After clients are done with work in the evenings, they are required to attend group and individual therapy sessions in the home with LADCs. The Hendricks House Group program is also 12-step oriented, with at least two meetings held on-site each week. Clients can receive transportation to local meetings on other nights.
Dual diagnosis care is also available as the facility has an on-staff psychiatrist who visits at least once a month to provide medication management. When necessary, the facility can also set up visits with a local physician. Once their time at one of Hendricks House Group’s home concludes, clients work with a counselor to plan their next phase of recovery. This typically means support in finding placement in a local halfway house or an Oxford House.
In addition to providing care for self-referred clients, Hendricks House Group also works with state and law enforcement programs to provide care for eight counties in southern New Jersey, partnering with organizations including Drug Court, Work First and South Jersey Initiative, as well as with DUI programs.
Since it was founded, Hendricks House Group has grown by leaps and bounds to include three distinct sober living homes in two locations. With a network of recovery-supportive living environments, nightly group and individual sessions, on-site 12-step meetings and dual diagnosis services, Hendricks House is a comprehensive recovery program ideal for post-primary or residential care. In all, Hendricks House Group is a supportive choice for those seeking their next step in recovery.
