Casa Esperanza Men’s Program is a six- to twelve-month residential program founded with the goal of serving those who face barriers to accessing treatment for substance abuse, such as: cultural and linguistic minorities, HIV+ persons, homeless individuals, injection drug abusers, the disabled, and individuals recently released from prison. The program offers men an opportunity to learn about their addiction through a phased approach to treatment that builds independence, strengthens resiliency and prevents relapse. Services include:
