Residential Services

Our residential facility, at 1900 Prathersville Rd., Columbia, MO, is designed to provide treatment services, including community referrals, in a controlled residential environment for the diverse needs of offenders, with emphasis on relapse prevention and life skills management. Assessment of the offender’s needs, development of a referral/treatment plan, job skills development, community release and aftercare are components of the residential program. Identified needs are then addressed through residential and outpatient treatment and community-based programming.


How to get in:  Must be court ordered or have an ability to pay for services.

Focus:  For most people, drug addiction becomes chronic, with relapses possible even after long periods of abstinence. As a chronic, recurring illness, addiction may require continued treatments to increase the intervals between relapses and diminish their intensity. Through residential treatment tailored to individual needs, people with drug addiction can recover and lead productive lives. The ultimate goal of drug addiction treatment is to enable an individual to achieve lasting abstinence, but the immediate goals are to reduce drug abuse, improve the patient's ability to function, and minimize the medical and social complications of drug abuse and addiction.

Services:  A Cognitive-Behavioral approach to substance abuse counseling, in a Therapeutic Community, is provided by a state recognized or certified counselor.  Participants must live at Reality House in shared room setting with 24/7 supervision.  Participants will only be allowed out of the facility for medical appointments or other Counselor approved activities.  Bunk bed & bedding, towel, 3 meals, personal hygiene supplies if indigent, and random breath & random urinalysis testing are provided.  Van transportation to and from nearby bus stop is available.  Weekend passes and visitation can be earned if it is pre-approved by staff.  There will be mandatory daily substance abuse services (fifty hours per weekly).  Services will include individual counseling, group counseling, education classes, support groups, and recreation geared toward sustained sobriety.
