About The Ed Keating Center
The Ed Keating Center provides a chance for sober living to recovering alcoholic, and drug-addicted, men and women.
Their three non-profit sober living facilities are home to about 150 men and women at a time.
These services should be provided without direct assistance from any government agency, depending instead on the support of individuals and organizations who believe in communities helping themselves.
The Keating Center offers a variety of services:
A three-month in-house rehab program in which residents attend group meetings facilitated by experienced recovering alcoholics. Residents must get an sponsor and attend 12-step meetings every night. Once residents complete the in-house program, they advance to the three-quarter house program. They work so they can financially help themselves, but still be part of the centers supervised program. They attend seven mandatory 12-step meetings each week, as a reminder "that staying sober must come first. Also three-quarter house residents attend mandatory after-care meetings once a week. The Keating Center offers a work release program. Clients live in a structured, sober environment, go to work, and attend 12-step meetings in the evening. Proceeds from the work release program help to subside the operation of the other sober living facilities.
Is this treatment center really free?
Most of the listings on this website are free; however, we decided it would also be helpful for our visitors to see sliding scale treatment centers (which are based on your income and you can qualify for free treatment) and low cost rehab centers for low income persons.
