Finnegan Place is a clean and sober transitional living apartment complex offered by AHH. Once someone has completed an initial recovery program they will often face new obstacles with securing housing and moving forward successfully in their recovery. They many times don’t meet credit requirements, have funds available for deposits, or have any other number of blemishes in their history that will make getting a place to live difficult if not outright impossible. In this scenario relapse is common and many people end up back on the street in active addiction after just recently completing a treatment program. The Finnegan Place was designed to fill these gaps.
Finnegan Place is comprised of 12 one bedroom and six two bedroom apartments and houses up to 45 men at any given time. It offers a clean and sober living environment with peer support and full array of the AHH menu of services. The interior of the building was recently renovated and the apartments are fully furnished with furniture and appliances. It is conveniently located in midtown and near public transportation so residents have easy access to get to their jobs or school. There is a house manager who overseers the complex and assists residents with any issues they may have with their apartment.
Residents of Finnegan Place are required to be employed and pay a weekly rent of $110, submit to random drug and alcohol testing and attend weekly recovery meetings. While most people who complete a treatment program end up using again very shortly afterwards, the environment offered at Finnegan Place is conducive to continued recovery and gives people the stepping stone needed to move onto securing more traditional housing. The residents who live here are part of the AHH team and can reach out to one another when experiencing the personal struggles of recovery.
