Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a day to celebrate giving and support the work of nonprofits around the world.
Giving Tuesday has become the single largest day of giving for the year. Please join us in the spirit of giving on December 1 and donate to Samaritan Colony.
Our top priority is the heath and safety of our guests, their families and our employees. We will continue to provide quality, comprehensive residential treatment services as we operate under our infectious disease protocols and recommendations from the CDC and our state health department.
Thank you for your cooperation. Be well and be safe.
Samaritan Colony is a 12-bed not-for-profit residential chemical dependency treatment facility for men in Rockingham, NC.
Since 1972 we have been committed to providing compassionate, coordinated care and ongoing support to underserved men who suffer from addiction.
(We are in the planning stages of being able to provide these same services to women in the future)
Samaritan Colony believes that addiction is a three-fold illness and unless all three areas are treated, a person's life can become unmanageable. These three areas are:
We believe through the commitment of abstinence, from alcohol, drugs; the development of responsibility, self-sufficiency, acceptance of a power greater than self, and supportive connections in the recovery community, long-term recovery can be yours.
Our program is a 12-Step facilitation program that includes evidence based, cognitive, behavioral, social, and recreational therapies. Our guests also attend character building classes and learn to put structure and responsibility back into their lives. Through group therapy, individual therapy, family counseling and essential life skills training, you will learn to face your addiction with confidence.
Addiction affects everyone, including the family. However, family support and commitment can make a huge impact in the recovery process. We'll give you the resources and counseling to begin the healing process together.
Clinical staff works with you before you leave to coordinate a plan for aftercare and housing if needed. Some men will return home to their families and jobs while others will consider going back to school or will need jobs and recovery supported housing.
We work with community collaboratives, religious, medical, social service and criminal justice providers to provide education to promote recovery in the Sandhills and surrounding areas in North Carolina.
All of our clinical staff are in recovery themselves.
