Helping men break the chains of
drug addiction alcohol addiction substance abuse

We are a residential, work-based treatment center for men for whom alcohol or drugs have become a major problem. We are here to help addicts who are willing to consider changing their lifestyles to overcome addiction. We focus on the three R's: Recovery, Responsibility, and Respect. We want to help you live a life practicing respect for yourself and for others.


Like other chronic diseases such as heart disease or asthma, treatment for drug addiction usually isn't a cure. But addiction can be managed successfully. Treatment enables people to counteract addiction's disruptive effects on their brain and behavior and regain control of their lives.


It is necessary for addicts to accept responsibility for their lives to truly begin change. This is a process that takes time. All people in recovery can learn to accept more responsibility and with time and effort, the recovering person will be a more responsible adult, even if he has other problems such as mental illness in addition to the addiction.


It is common for those who embark on the road to recovery to have lost a lot of self-respect. More than likely, others have lost a lot of respect for them as well. However, now that the journey of recovery has begun, respect for oneself and respect from others becomes a fundamental part of maintaining sobriety.

We care about your success. We provide:

3 Phase Program

Phase 1

Phase I is designed to help new residents transition into a treatment setting. Residents are given a 5 day grace period in order to familiarize themselves with the rules and agendas. Residents will be tasked with finding a job in their first days at The Way Up. Residents will be assigned a counselor who will assist the resident to begin learning more about themselves and the disease of addiction. Residents will also be asked to obtain a sponsor to guide them in working the steps of NA/AA. Once becoming stable and progressing as a phase I, each resident will serve as house manager for a minimum of 5 weeks. House manager helps to ready the resident for phase II.

Phase 2

As a phase II , residents are given quite a bit more responsibility. Being a phase II requires the resident to become balanced at maintaining his own recovery while also assisting the phase I residents with following all rules and agendas at The Way Up. As residents progress through phase II, they will be given more and more opportunities to become more responsible and become better decision makers. As a phase II, the resident will be ask to step up into more of a leadership role. As completion of phase II nears, the resident will have become a leader by example for phase I residents to follow.

Phase 3

Phase III is designed to ease the resident back into society as a productive member. As a phase III, residents have the chance to reflect back at their stay at The Way up to ensure they have been thorough in the recovery process as to maintain on going sobriety once they graduate The Way Up. As a phase III, the resident will be given more freedom and responsibility to live and make decisions for himself. A phase III at The Way Up should be looked up to by phase I and phase II residents as what they want to become. The way in which a phase III resident handles the freedom and responsibility helps staff determine when the resident is ready for graduation.
