THE OMEGA PROJECT PROCESS
At Omega, we have found that even when a person wants to get better, many of the negative influences and triggers from their past can often take them down again. We believe that for a person to overcome some of the deeper struggles of addiction and dysfunction, they will need to draw strength from God and from healthy people on the outside. They will also need to limit contact with old influences, at least for a time, as they begin to lay the foundation for a healthy, addiction-free lifestyle.
Participants in the Omega Project enter on probationary status. They are held highly accountable for their day-to-day activities. We require that all residents who are unemployed be responsible for donating their time in service to the community. When employment becomes advisable, we ask that the resident seek employment that allows them to attend recovery groups and classes. Omega Workforce helps provide work opportunities that allow residents to earn money, learn work skills, and build a resume while focusing on recovery.
We ask residents to plan on 18 months in the program and, if possible, to continue to attend groups for 6 months after moving out of The Omega Project houses. The longer the residents stay immersed in a healthy culture, the more likely they are to get what they need to live an ongoing, long-term healthy life. Our program is not meant to "fix" people, but to teach a lifestyle meant to be lived and enjoyed!
