The Wilson House is an in-house recovery center for the homeless male chronic substance abuser. For many of our residents, it’s the last chance in a long string of failed attempts at achieving sobriety. By the time they reach us, most are unemployable and unable to support themselves.
New residents do not work so they may focus on learning about the disease that has destroyed their lives. The program is based on the principles of AA, which had been effective in their individual lives.
The Wilson House is funded by contributions from many generous sources and is not dependent on any one organization. Volunteers play a very large and important role at The Wilson House, many of whom come themselves from a background of substance abuse.
