Mental Health, Homeless & Housing
4604 W Caroline Ave
Nick''s Place provides a clean, safe, sober, structured and supervised home to young men 20-26 years of age beginning their recovery from the disease of addiction. We are unique in that we are the only recovery house in the metropolitan area designed specifically to serve this population.The majority of our residents were homeless before entering treatment and do not have a residence to which to return after completing treatment. We offer affordable housing so residents can concentrate on recovery. Our home is fully supervised and we offer a supportive and caring environment. Our goal is to prepare our residents to return to their families and their communities as self-supporting individuals, capable of making good life decisions. Our residents tell us that one of the strongest motivators of our program are the friendships that develop at Nick''s Place, that encourage and sustain recovery. Residents are encouraged to stay for a period of 9-12 months for maximum benefit. Our residents are required to remain alcohol and drug free, participate in a mandatory 12-step program, participate in the in-house relapse prevention counseling, be employed, meet their financial responsibilities and maintain the residence.
