William’s Place provides the opportunity to connect with licensed counselors who will help our residents explore how they’ve gotten stuck and how they can begin to move forward. Our residents will participate in individual therapy one to two times a week, as well as group therapy three days a week.
Spiritual Formation & Discipleship
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.
Work & Volunteering
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.
Worship & Music
We want to be part of the community and the community needs us. Residents at William’s Place will attend church to worship together weekly. Music is a big part of this and helps us heal. We express what we feel and know at the same time, proclaiming what is true and right and good; that we are loved and pursued by the One who made us and draws us to wholeness.
