Supportive Living


Supportive Living Program for Adults

A structured living environment is important to sustain life-long recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. We understand that returning home after primary treatment is not always the best option for every person.

The Supportive Living Program at Fairbanks offers an opportunity for patients to transition from inpatient treatment to outpatient treatment or recovery management programming. Residents are encouraged to stay at SLP for at least nine weeks; however, many choose to stay longer.

First Step Supportive Living for adults (SLP) offers a structured environment where individuals can develop and practice life-skills while maintaining a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle. Our supportive living apartments provide a safe and sober environment as they begin a new life.

SLP services provided include:

  • Literacy program
    Residents work one on one with National Honor Society students in an adult learning program.
  • Job readiness program
    Residents learn important skills about interviewing, resume writing and dressing professionally.
  • Employment agency
    A local employment agency meets with residents and assists them in learning how to apply for job opportunities.
  • Financial counseling
    A local bank assists residents in gaining information about managing money and budgeting.
  • Healthcare
    Residents have the opportunity to partner with the Wishard Advantage Program to receive access to affordable healthcare services.
  • Transportation
    A Fairbanks can provides transportation to and from treatment programs and support meetings.
  • Food pantry
    Opportunities for shopping at the Fairbanks food pantry are provided weekly.
