Al-A-Mo Recovery Center

For over 30 years, Al-A-Mo Recovery Center has provided housing and substance abuse rehabilitation to men who are recovering from alcoholism and/or drug abuse. The program helps participants achieve continued sobriety and abstinence so that they can successfully return to the community. Residents are encouraged to stay at least three months, but may stay longer depending on their progress. During this time, they are expected to work, pay a portion toward room and board, attend regular 12-step meetings, and develop a program of recovery.
