SOME provides comprehensive addiction recovery services to homeless men and women who are ready, with the support of SOME staff, to break the cycle of addiction and homelessness.
Following an initial Assessment Phase at our Behavioral Health Services (BHS) Clinic, many clients who are without a safe place to stay are temporarily housed at Michael Kirwan House, a "Safe House" for homeless men and women who are waiting to be placed in our residential addiction treatment programs.
These two 90-day residential addiction treatment facilities, Exodus House for homeless men and Maya Angelou House for homeless women, enable clients to address and overcome the root causes of their addictions. Both programs have outstanding success rates.
More than 70% of the men and women who complete these intensive, three-month programs take the next step in their treatment at SOME's transitional housing, Harvest House for women and Leland Place for men.
While living at Harvest House and Mickey Leland Place, clients continue their recovery, are tutored in basic life and job readiness skills, and search for long-term housing. These programs boast excellent completion rates, with more than 70% of clients finishing the program and securing long-term housing. SOME provides transitional housing for women in recovery who are students at the SOME Center for Employment Training. Watch and read stories from some of the many clients who have overcome their addictions at SOME on our Success Stories page.

After completing the programs at Harvest House and Leland Place, clients in recovery continue to meet with their addiction counselors through SOME's Continuing Care Addiction Services and participate in events with other alumni of SOME’s residential addiction treatment program that provides support and a sense of community to those in recovery.
