Father Alfred Center (formerly Covenant House and Seton Hall)[]

Alcohol and Drug Recovery Services, houses two drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in the city providing 61 men a safe and supportive environment in an urban residential setting.

Primary Program[]

The first stage of our alcohol/drug recovery program lasts five to six months. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age, willing to perform physical labor, and willing and able to adjust to the requirements of a residential program. Candidates must also be without any source of income, including SSI, SSA, GA or Unemployment Insurance. During their stay, they participate in one of the structured work components of the program for 35-40 hours per week. They pursue intensive rehabilitation for chemical dependency, which consists of education, individual and group counseling, basic living skills, social skills, positive work habits, and an intensive AA/NA program to introduce a clean and sober lifestyle.

Secondary Program[]

The second stage of the program lasts six months. It is a transitional program that helps residents prepare for a full return to society, while maintaining a clean and sober lifestyle. Residents go to school, work, or seek employment; continue their 12 step program; learn to manage money; and save enough money for an independent living situation upon completion of the program. The residents also learn to maintain a stable employment situation and develop a clean and sober support system in the recovery community.
