Group Residential Housing
The Group Residential Housing program at Juel Fairbanks provides 20 beds for chemically dependent adult American Indian men and other underserved men. Clients apply for financial assistance through Ramsey County and typically receive general assistance and medical assistance.
Our program includes Case Management services in which clients can set goals and receive assistance toward reaching their goals. The focus typically includes permanent housing, education and employment. Once employed, a resident can save his earnings in an account that he can use when he has completed the program. Wellness is also encouraged, and clients receive support in setting and keeping medical, dental and psychological care appointments.
As they recover and look for a job and permanent housing, residents can stay 30 days up to two years. The typical stay lasts approximately six months — the amount of time it takes to locate and secure permanent housing. 10 hours of group per week is usual. To support the 12 step approach a closed in house AA meeting is offered.
The safe and structured environment facilitates clients as they receive Residential Treatment, including relapse prevention, anger management, spirituality and recovery.
The 20-bed facility operates with the guidance of a residential manager, licensed chemical dependency counselors and a Registered Nurse Consultant. All counselors and technicians are First Aid/CPR trained and Medication Certified. In addition, a certified food manager ensures healthy, nourishing meals for residents while they recover in a positive group environment.
