After the initial 9-month program, Jericho Road offers 2nd Stage homes and programming. We understand that when initial treatment ends, a life of recovery begins. We recognize the value of continuing to provide a safe and supportive environment to help the men grow in their recovery journey and as they widen their own personal community. Jericho Road Second Stage housing is a place where men get to put their new and learned skills into practice in a regular home environment; and then into their work places and social networks. We hope to maximize the ripple effect by encouraging the men to go out and live life to the full.
The majority of our 1st Stage residents choose to live in one of our 2nd Stage homes after initial treatment. Continued discipleship is the goal, and we strongly encourage our men to remain in the recovery process by being involved in volunteer positions, leadership and mentoring roles within their community and with 1st Stage residents.
Jericho Road does not put a time-frame on the length of stay available to our 2nd Stage residents. We understand that each man who walks through our doors will have different needs in regard to housing and long-term support. Since we value continued connection, we always welcome and encourage past residents to maintain the relationships developed within Jericho Road and to visit as often as they wish, even if it's just for quick hello.
