Next Step is a minimum 12-month residential recovery and mentorship program for men. Next Step works closely with the Georgia Department of Community Supervision (Probation Parole), the courts, and families helping men to return to success.
Men's Residential Recovery
The Next Step Men's home is an intense residential discipleship and mentorship program for men struggling with addictions, strongholds, and other life-crippling situations. The program is divided into 6 month phases. All prospective residents are individually screened and either accepted or denied depending on their willingness to commit to the program.
Phase one is the first six months providing each man with intense group class sessions, as well as group and individual counseling, community volunteer work, and regular church attendance. Cost during this phase is $600 per month. The monthly fee will be assessed at intake by Mr. Carmichael and will be based on income and scholarship available at the time of entry. Applicants will still be considered eligible for our program even if they do not have the ability to pay. Men will participate in fundraising opportunities to defray other program costs.
In the second six months each man continues in the program with group class sessions, as well as group and individual counseling, while given the opportunity to go to work. Graduation from the program will be determined by our staff for each individual, based on their satisfactory completion of all aspects of the program.
All residents for both phases are randomly drug and alcohol screened. Next Step is a tobacco free program.
