The Programs

The Landing is the first phase of treatment for many new clients to Jaywalker, providing a safe environment to transition into The Lodge or Solutions program.

The Landing introduces our clients to the accountability and opportunity that extended care offers. Clients are active with recreation and clinical assignments as we develop an individualized treatment plan. Depending on a clients needs and previous treatment, The Landing will last between 3-21 days. We will focus on initial community integration in making transition out of a primary care containment based environment into the Jaywalker Carbondale community.

Solutions is our transitional 90 day program tailored for those ready and able to assume personal responsibility for their recovery.

Solutions is a Stage 2 recovery model designed to aid clients in implementing a sober lifestyle that mirrors independent living. By engaging in a wide range of weekly activities, Jaywalkers re-establish personal accountability in an organized and supportive atmosphere. Intense investment in the 12-Step community is paramount. The Solutions program focuses on the specific needs and wants of each individual. Clients have the opportunity to participate in either a vocational or academic track.

Who is a Jaywalker?

The Jaywalker is the addict with a tendency to relapse in the past despite an honest desire to recover. The alcoholic who continues drinking or using because he believes that his life would be boring without it.

The addict who, after a treatment experience, knows all the right things to say but continues to make self-destructive decisions The “adrenaline junkie” who continues to drink or use to enhance the experiences of his unhealthy and risky behavior. The addict who has let his lack of self-confidence, fear and anxiety stop him from becoming the man he wants to be. The man who has had a taste of what true recovery can feel like but always lets it slip away as a result of his own tendency to isolate. The alcoholic that needs a fresh start at life in a supportive community surrounded by recovering peers. The man who needs to shift his focus from the wreckage of his past to the promises of a bright future in recovery
