Our Program

The Admissions Process

     Even though we walk with a man from detox to diploma the single most important factor for admittance into The Jericho House program is a man’s attitude. Each incoming applicant is interviewed to see if he has a sincere desire to find physical, emotional and spiritual help. We have found that we cannot help a man until he is ready to admit he needs help and is willing to let God help him.

Program Requirements

  • We require that a man interested in the program phone us to discuss why he desires to enter the program.
  • In order to determine eligibility and appropriateness for our program a man will need to be forthcoming with the following information: current situation; reason for wanting to enter program; name, age, address, and phone number; occupation and work history; marital status and number of dependents; how his family will be cared for while here; type of addiction and number of years in it; previous rehabilitation programs attended; current court charges; complete criminal history; and medical problems requiring special attention.
  • All face to face interviews will be scheduled by the program director and set during normal working hours. Weekend appointments will require special arrangements.
  • The personal interview should in no way be interpreted as automatic acceptance into the program. Its purpose is to discern if a man is truly ready to receive help and to determine how we can best meet his particular needs.
  • We require that a man be completely off drugs or alcohol at least three days prior to the interview. If any further detoxification is needed, we can provide assistance.
  • Persons requiring medication or medical attention will have their situation reviewed on an individual basis.
  • NO tobacco products of any kind are allowed in the program because of the correlation between alcohol, drug, and tobacco addiction. One of the goals of the program is to overcome all self-destructive addictions, including addiction to tobacco.
  • Incoming residents should bring their social security card and a photo ID to the intake interview.
