SmileGenesis House

Program Description

Three licensed facilities - 45 beds, (31 treatment and 14 sober living). The primary function is to provide 9-11 months of residential treatment in a highly structured atmosphere for substance abusers. The facility may function as an alternative to jail but not as a half-way house and is for abstinence treatment only.

The program provides services via individual client treatment plans, intensive group experiences, and one to one counseling. Strong program emphasis is placed on client growth from program dependence to personal independence. Development and implementation of vocational or educational plans are carefully staged in both the After-Care and Sober Living components.

Description of Facility and Location

The facility is a self-sufficient community; cooking and maintenance is performed by clients. Coming and going is controlled by established house policy. The location is in a mixed lower income neighborhood located in the semi-rural outskirts of the city of Vallejo,CA . The Genesis House is not a locked facility.

At present, the program has four facilities, located adjacent to each other, in the semi-rural out-skirts of Vallejo. We provide long term residential treatment to men and women who require a complete life-style and environmental change.
