Hope . Restoration . Life
William’s Place provides the opportunity to connect with a licensed counselor who will help our residents work through history and underlying mental health issues that have contributed to and sustained patterns of addiction. Residents will participate in individual therapy twice a week and group therapy three days a week.
Many who struggle with addiction feel distanced from God and they don’t know how to connect. We are building inside-out Christianity based on a loving God’s sacrifice that atones for our sins and leads us to live a life of service. The result is an unbelievable gratefulness for His gift. Residents participate in daily devotions, Celebrate Recovery, weekly Bible study and discussions, and attend Sunday services together in the community.
People need to have fun. Real fun. Addicts and alcoholics have built their lives around meeting this need through substance use. At William’s Place, we focus on learning to have fun in nature’s playground: our backyard. Saturdays are our day for adventure. Residents will spend the day in such activities as hiking, canoeing, bouldering, or working with horses. We also hike as a group once during the week, weather permitting.
Occupation & Life Skills
Addiction often interrupts the process of developing and honing life skills. Each resident at William’s Place will leave having completed our life skills curriculum which includes a course on finances and money management, as well as practicalities such as how to dress and interview for a job. Additionally, each resident will participate in cooking classes taught by members of the community who will not only teach how to cook, but the importance of sharing a meal and living in community.
We all need to fit in and feel we have purpose. Individuals also need to sometimes simply focus on something that has nothing to do with themselves or how they feel. Work helps us to do so. Our residents are currently volunteering with a local non-profit whose mission is to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to the community. Residents also at times engage in paid work activities. All monies earned are held for each resident in an account which will be available upon completion of the program.
