Striver House Intensive Residential Program
Striver House is a 65 bed intensive residential treatment facility for men age 18 and over presenting with a chronic substance use disorder. The facility operates as a modified therapeutic community offering a systematic treatment approach that is guided by an explicit perspective on the drug use disorder, the person, recovery and right living. The therapeutic community consists of the social environment, peers, and staff who, as role models of successful personal change, serve as guides in the recovery process. Thus, the community is the context in which change occurs and the method for facilitating change.
An integrated team of trained professionals including, registered nurses, licensed social workers and certified alcohol and substance abuse counselors provide individualized treatment tailored to different diagnoses and varying levels of functioning with the goal of enhancing patient quality of life. The facility promotes a drug-free residence that aims to alleviate homelessness and drug use. Many Striver House residents are discharged back into the community as self-sufficient, drug-free productive members of society.
The population served is persons with a substance use diagnosis or history of substance use, 18 years or older and unable to refrain from substance use outside of a 24 hour structured environment.
