How Alpha Home impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision
Alpha Home serves men and women from across Bexar County through programs which help participants implement recovery skills in daily living patterns while maintaining abstinence and sobriety;learn tools for and practice life skills related to parenting, anger management, building healthy relationships, GED attainment, wellness and job readiness;and provide individual and group counseling and support. At the time of discharge, 95% of clients served by the Residential Program had stopped using drugs and alcohol, 83% of clients served by Outpatient Treatment had stopped using drugs and alcohol, and 77% of clients engaged by preventative Family First programs reported abstinence from drugs and alcohol after attending. Alpha Home's work to reduce the number of persons suffering from addiction helps to reduce the risk of chronic disease, intentional and unintentional injuries, and suicide associated with SUD among persons receiving treatment;while increasing the opportunities for education attainment and job security, and more stable social and family conditions. Overall, these individual outcomes can lead to decreased medical and insurance costs, and a reduced strain on the criminal and foster care systems across a community.
