Founded in 1962, St. Jude’s Recovery Center is an expansive, CARF-accredited organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia. It offers a wide range of treatment options for men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Aside from its more intensive primary care options, the organization has several sober living facilities designed for clients with different needs.
Accommodations and Amenities
St. Jude’s sober and transitional housing options include a Family Care Center, Halfway House and Veterans Recovery Residence. The Family Care Center has 22 beds and serves women, with a focus on mothers with children. Adult clients are given their own private room with a bathroom that is shared with one other client. Rooms are equipped with twin beds and cribs, as necessary.
The Halfway House is a residential home for men with a total of eight beds in shared rooms that include twin beds, dressers and closet space. The Veterans Recovery Residence is set up similarly but is exclusively for homeless male veterans.
Those staying at the Family Care Center can take advantage of three meals a day served cafeteria-style at the organization’s main location, while clients of the Halfway House and Veterans Recovery residences are expected to cook for themselves.
Rules and Regulations
Though program specifics may vary, all require residents to obey a basic house behavioral contract, submit to regular and random drug testing, attend 12-step meetings and all required facility programming. The Family Care Center is slightly different than the men’s facilities as it includes case management, life skills and parenting classes in addition to group, individual and family therapy. For the first 10 to 12 weeks, mothers attend intensive treatment before moving on to securing employment. Childcare services are provided throughout the program.
To attend the Halfway House or the Veterans Recovery Residence, clients must have completed a minimum six months of intensive addiction treatment. These facilities include the same basic rules (aside from the concurrent treatment regimen), with residents required to seek and obtain gainful employment while attending bi-weekly aftercare groups, regular AA/NA and house meetings.
Aside from the above, St. Jude’s also provides a wide range of standalone services like family counseling and education, employment support and basic healthcare including medication management. The organization also provides a full continuum of care including detox, residential treatment, outpatient care and aftercare services.
Overall, St. Jude’s Recovery Center’s sober living facilities provide comprehensive transitional programs for men and women with children. During their stay, residents have a safe place to work on their recovery while they begin building their outside life. With meals, therapy, assistance with job searching, childcare and discharge planning included, St. Jude’s Recovery Center’s sober living programs are a strong resource for those in the area.
