Personal Stories

The Alcoholic Rehabilitation Community Home is an extended care treatment center providing individualized care for persons struggling with alcohol and/or drug dependence. We are licensed and funded in whole or part by the Illinois Department of Human Services, Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and supported by Tri-Cities United Way and United Way Partnership. ARCH provides a structured recovery environment in which individuals can rebuild their lives and achieve a healthy, independent lifestyle. We are located at 1313 21st Street in Granite City, Illinois. ARCH is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors comprised of concerned local citizens.

Our Mission

In order to help our community lessen the harmful consequences of the disease of alcohol and other drug dependence, it is the Mission of the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Community Home to provide referral, educational and residential treatment services for individuals seeking recovery from this disease and to network with other providers to lessen the incidence of their disease.

Besides room and board for 24 residents. ARCH provides group therapy, individual therapy, relapse prevention therapy, aftercare, recreational and employment counseling.

Treatment cost is based on a sliding scale proportional to the client's income, once gainful employment is obtained. No one is excluded for his inability to pay.

The average length of stay at ARCH is six months. Timeframes vary according to client's progress in treatment. Our primary objective is a successful transition to independent living without the use of mood-altering substances. This involves the development of learning skills to cope with lifes problems in new ways.

A clients recovery requires a wide variety of changes including spiritual, physical, psychological and social development. These changes require assessment and treatment by professional staff and some decision making and clear cut action on the part of the client.
