Christopher House

TCN is proud to operate Christopher House, a 16-bed facility where residents participate in a Chemical Dependency Treatment Program based upon individual need but typically runs up to 60 days. Potential clients should attend one of TCN's  Walk-In Clinics where eligibility will be determined. Christopher House is open to men over the age of 18 who need an intensive residential program to address their alcohol and/or chemical addiction. We specialize in clients who are dual-diagnosed (mental illness and chemical dependency).

Our Program

Christopher House uses an eclectic approach to alcohol and drug treatment employing a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Reality Therapy, and elements of the 12-step Recovery Model. Clients are exposed to the local recovery community through 12-step meeting attendance as well as a variety of other therapeutic activities. Residents work through a level system including Orientation, Admission, Level 1, and Level 2, and are eligible for different privileges as they progress. 

Christopher House programs include:

  • Coping Skills Development
  • Opioid Dependence Treatment using Suboxone
  • Psychiatric Assessment
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Relapse Prevention Education
  • Family Education Group
  • Access to GED education classes
  • Access to Vocational counseling
  • Case Management
  • Therapeutic Recreational Outings
  • Basic Life Skills Training
  • Parenting Classes

After Graduation

TCN has a specially-designed step down group for Christopher House graduates. Each client will undergo a gradual step-down in services, determined on an individual basis. Close monitoring of each client is provided to ensure he has stable employment, appropriate housing and a strong, sober support system within the community. 

Transitional Housing

The Christopher House staff will make efforts with local partners to find community housing after graduation. During this transitional period a graduate may not have a recovery-safe environment to call home. To meet this need, TCN operates Freedom Hill, and Liberty Hill, transitional housing facilities that are within walking distance of TCN's main Xenia campus. Residents can continue step-down treatment services while seeking employment.

Maintaining Recovery

TCN is pleased to offer additional services to help Christopher House graduates maintain their recovery. Our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline is available 365 days a year. TCN provides Case Management, administers Urine Drug Screens and works collaboratively with our client's referral source. TCN offers Individual and Group Counseling as well as Psychiatric Services.
