Length of the TPN Program
1. If you come voluntarily, you will be required to stay for at least one year.
2. If you are court ordered, then the court sets the minimum length of stay.
Why one year?
It is our belief that it takes nine months or longer for some men to learn how
to use the tools to stay clean, sober, and deal with life's situations. Very few
can stay clean and sober by sheer will power. If it takes a year to do this
once, is it not better than the life you are leading now?
Giving back to others as well as the desire to help others is critical to
staying clean and sober. Community service is a requirement as well as an
outreach to the surrounding area.
Under addiction one tends to live for the moment, thinking only of and about one
self and ones own need. As we learn to help others without expecting anything
back in return, then we know the tools that you have been given to staying clean
and sober are beginning to positively affect your life and behavior.
We are a private facility
We are a private facility. We are also a faith
based facility. We believe that there is a spiritual aspect to keep on clean and
sober. As with AA and NA, we are ran by or supported by any denomination,
church, state funding or federal funding. TPN is supported by the funds received
from the work of the men in the facility. Working is a part of the program.
While learning the importance of maintaining a job, men learn how to work and
get along with coworkers. Working to pay for their stay and program gives men
ownership and a vested interest in their recovery.
