On May 1, Samaritan Inns will be welcoming new residents to its new transitional living program at 1215 Fairmont Street NW.
This new 6-month program will serve about 50 men each year who suffer from substance use disorders. We will provide housing, along with rigorous treatment services and life skills training. The first six months after the initial treatment regimen are the most critical to ensuring lasting sobriety. Each person will receive individual/group counselling using proven evidence-based therapeutic approaches coupled with case management services. Life skills training will include activities such as effective communication, financial management, and employment readiness – with the objective of helping individuals transition into being more independent and responsible members of the community. Our goal is that all participants will be employed and have a solid recovery foundation at program completion. With the addition of this new Transitional Living Program, Samaritan Inns will be the only substance use disorder treatment and recovery provider offering a full residential continuum.
Renovations were recently completed at the Fairmont Inn to house up to 18 men providing a 6 month continuum of care for men in addiction recovery. You can read more about the new transition program here. In December, Samaritan Inns launched a new transitional treatment program and are quickly moving towards accepting our first residents to the program. But we need your help!
The Fairmont Inn is weeks away from a city inspection that will allow it’s doors to officially open to these men. There is a need to outfit the kitchen and quickly prior to that inspection. To make this happen, please use our Walmart kitchen gift registry for the Fairmont Inn and send the link to friends of Samaritan Inns who have been involved with the ministry over the years.
When you give from our wish list, you help make our program a home for those who need it most!
