Our Philosophy

Treatment at Baker House is very individualized and client centered. This program works hard with each individual to find the inner strength and motivation to make changes for a better life with goals, hopes, and dreams. Staff is caring and dedicated to the process of helping individuals change their behaviors and learn the skills to be successful when they return to their families and communities.

Our staff is here to create a safe and supportive environment for men to heal from addiction and build a solid foundation for long term recovery. Our program offers four evidenced-based groups per day, five days a week, facilitated by credentialed addiction counselors.

Activities

We encourage healthy leisure activities and provide outings that include hiking, fishing, camping, shopping, walking, cooking, volleyball, gym time and local community activities. Church services are available on Sundays. Clients can choose to take part in volunteering in the community including community service time if needed.Clients have the option to attend Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Celebrate Recovery meetings in the community.

"After classes we have recreation…we have some massive, intense, fun-hearted games of volleyball."
"Every thing here is on a plus—it's a 'ten plus'—I can't say enough about it!"
"If you don't let it out…it's never going to go away and it's never going to get better."
"If you're thinking about getting treatment or getting clean or not…it's worth it, and you're worth it."
