halfway house

Halfway House is a transitional housing program for those who need more time before returning to ministry, or are transitioning out of ministry.

Transitional Housing

Halfway House is a transitional residential program for clergy and men and women religious who typically have completed our residential program, but need additional time to integrate their treatment gains in a less structured environment. It also is a resource for thsoe who have relapsed or are transitioning out of religious life and ministry.

Residents live in a separate wing of Saint Luke Institute, and typically stay two to four months. The time varies based on the person's needs. 

What to Expect

While in the program, participants practice newly developed interpersonal skills, emotional coping techniques and healthier ways of living within a supportive and therapeutic environment that is less structured than the residential program.

Clients participate in therapy, 12-Step meetings when appropriate and volunteer or regular employment, study or other personal growth efforts, depending on their situation.
