June Newsletter
 
From the CEO
 
 
As we prepare for the summer months, it is important to reflect on where we’ve been. Focusing on the positives and operating in faith have certainly carried us through the challenges that COVID-19 brought with it.
 
Our retention rates are higher, we’ve engaged with more rural clients, and our outpatient client participation has increased.
 
Thank you for your continued support of Alpha Home staff and clients through donations, thoughts, and prayers. 
 
Stay well,
 
 
-Merideth Erickson, PhD
Alpha Home CEO
 
 
 
“Spiritual Awakening is what this beautiful place specializes in. A priceless gift. Do it!”

Wake Up & Daily Activities
 
Monday through Friday, clients wake at 7:00 a.m. and must be in meditation group at 7:25 a.m. By the first group of the day (usually 8:30 a.m.) client must be dressed for the day, have room ready for room check, and have eaten breakfast.
 
·     Clients are not allowed outside prior to 4:30 a.m. If clients go outside prior to 7:00 a.m., they must keep their voices low enough so that the noise is not disruptive to other clients or the neighbors. No one is outside in bathrobes or pajamas!Text Link
 
 
Chores & the Weekend!
 
·     On. Saturdays and Sundays, everyone is to be up by 9:00 a.m. Client must be dressed and have all chores done by 10:00 A.M. for group on Saturday and be ready to leave for church or Club 12 by 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.
 
·     All clients at Alpha Home are expected to contribute to keeping the house clean by doing chores. Chores start at 9:30 p.m. and are to be finished by 10:00 p.m. on weeknights. Client must be in their room by 10:45 pm, with lights out and radios off by 11:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
 
·     On Friday and Saturday nights, client may stay up late watching television or reading. Clients clean up their own mess, and the house must be in order before everyone is in bed. Lights are to be out by 1:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights. No clients are allowed outside after 11:00 p.m. during the week, and 1:00 a.m. on weekends.

Cell phones and pagers may be checked out on weekend pass time only. Counselors may give written permission for use of cell phone for special circumstances only.
 
·     Part of the therapy at Alpha Home will be changing some of the client’s behaviors. Behavior will be monitored by peers as well as by staff, and there is a consequence system for inappropriate behaviors. Client may not be intimately involved in any relationships with peers in treatment, regardless if in residential, outpatient or in alumnae.
 
·     Verbal or physical threats are not tolerated-client will be discharged.
