Addiction Recovery Services

Wayside Christian Mission offers a Sober Living Program which supports recovery from alcohol and other drugs.  The program teaches the essential tools for recovery, as well as, daily 12 step meeting support, ie, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics for Christ.  Residents attend daily classes, support groups, and on and offsite meetings. Residents participate in our Work Therapy Program,  being assigned a chore assignment to stay busy and to help develop a good work ethic.  Clients involved with the legal system will be supported to comply with court requirements. 


This program is a peer-led, abstinence-based substance addiction program for homeless men and women.  Participants with a period of recovery and sobriety behind them guide more recent arrivals through the twelve steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in a systematic manner, from admitting powerlessness over their addiction to assisting other addicts and alcoholics in their recovery.  During their period of program participation, clients receive not only extensive training in the twelve steps but also vocational training to prepare them for life on life’s terms.


The program offers basic services, including food services onsite, semi-private rooms, clothing, private showers and restrooms, case management assistance, support services, cable TV, limited WIFI, laundry services, limited storage.
