Samaritan Inns’ Long-Term Recovery Program (LTRP) is the third and final phase of our treatment and recovery continuum. The residential program is structured to help residents apply the tools and skills they have acquired to live a wholesome, alcohol/drug-free life.
Sustaining a lifestyle of recovery requires continuous discipline and dedication. The LTRP prepares residents to transition from one of our affordable single rooms to independent living. Formerly homeless and addicted men and women can continue their recovery at Samaritan Inns LTRP, where they enjoy private rooms, and share living, and dining space in alcohol/drug-free environment. Residents in the LTRP are encouraged to participate in on-going addiction counseling, social services, and they develop leadership skills by serving as suite representatives, and contribute to creating and maintaining a community of support and accountability for everyone at Samaritan Inns.
The incoming LTRP Director will be a visionary and collaborative leader – one who is able to create a path forward to increase support to our residents/tenants. The ideal candidate will possess clinical experience in SUD treatment/recovery, and residential property management.
