The Road to Genesis
The road to Genesis House is bleak. Before men get here, they experience some combination of addiction, illness, unemployment, homelessness, abuse, arrest, incarceration, broken relationships and forgotten dreams. Addiction, depression, despair and denial may be all that's left. Once they get to Genesis House, the journey to recovery can begin.
Cal came to Genesis House addicted to alcohol. Once, when he tried to stop drinking, his withdrawal symptoms were so severe that he was in the hospital for more than 40 days.
Keith came to Genesis House addicted to opiates. He was alienated from his family, unemployed and hopeless. If not for Genesis House, he would have had nowhere to go.
Our Genesis House counselors have helped Cal, Keith and many others find the courage to accept their addictions and to learn what it takes to recover. Now more mindful, responsible and resilient than they have ever been, both Cal and Keith have served as leaders and inspirations to others who need Genesis House.
Addiction, depression, despair and denial may be all that they have left.
