The Chapter House life development curriculum focuses on relationships, goal setting, cooking, cleaning, organization, professional skills, hygiene and budgeting. Each resident will be required to go through Dave Ramsey’s financial peace curriculum for young adults. We believe the curriculum is invaluable in its teaching of living debt free, learning to be disciplined with money, save, give, and ultimately to have financial freedom.
Because we specialize in individuals who have had a failure to launch, it is essential that we have a strong focus on education and vocation. Chapter House is committed to supporting young men in becoming fully functioning members of society and we refuse to enable residents to hide from the responsibility of being an adult. Case managers will partner with each resident through our Landing, Launching and Living stages to ensure that they leave Chapter House with a clear vision for their life and a plan to make it happen.
It is in our experience working in the field that “a body burned by alcohol and drugs does not often recover overnight”. This is why we have developed a wellness curriculum that utilizes nutrition and healthy exercise intended to help the body, mind and spirit recover. We utilize some of the best trainers and nutritionist that are available in our area. These services will include nutrition education, healthy shopping habits, sports specific training and individualized wellness plans.
One of the advantages of doing gender-specific recovery work with men is the understanding that developing a career is very closely involved with the identity, confidence and self-esteem of a man. We believe educational goals and career goals do not have to only be future aspirations, but they can begin now. Our case managers will work closely with each resident to understand the specific goals, personality type, and strengths of the individual to get them on the right track.
