With facilities in Poughkeepsie and Fishkill, New York, MARC Sober Housing is a multi-faceted non-profit founded in 1977. It provides sober living and other transitional care programs to adults in recovery.
Accommodations and Amenities
MARC has four facilities in upstate New York: Bolger House, Florence Manor, Dowling House and the Chemical Dependency Crisis Center. Both Bolger House and Florence Manor are gender-specific and can accommodate 24 clients each, with Bolger House for men Florence Manor for women. The Chemical Dependency Crisis Center and Dowling House have 12 beds each for co-ed residents. While the layout of each home differs, all clients share bedrooms with two to three other residents; each with twin beds, end tables, dressers and closet space.
Homes feature common areas with TV, on-site laundry and full kitchens. The Chemical Dependency Crisis Center differs somewhat, as it is intended for a short-term stabilization lasting only seven to 21 days and meals are provided, but clients of the other homes generally stay for three to nine months and are expected to prepare their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
Residents are expected to obey a behavioral contract and be present for all house meetings. Clients must also submit to regular and random drug testing, attend individual and group therapy, go to 12-step meetings and secure a sponsor. As part of the programs, clients work with staff members to learn money management, life skills and job training.
The organization also offers advocacy and case management to those in need. Once clients have completed their stay, they can get referrals to outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) as a form of aftercare, if needed.
Overall, MARC Sober Housing offers a wide range of housing services for men and women in recovery. Programs encourage residents to live their own lives while also teaching them life skills and helping them get involved in local 12-step communities. For those in the area in search of affordable transitional housing, MARC Sober Housing is worth consideration.
