Alpha Omega was opened in 2013 by Deacon Don Christy, as a sober recovery house, who saw the house as an extension of his jail ministry in Dickinson County. Planning for the house at 112 West Brown Street in Iron Mountain, Michigan began in 2012 and was purchased from the Salvation Army. The house is currently zoned for 8 residents.
Alpha Omega is a community outreach project under the blanket of Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula. Alpha Omega is run almost exclusively by volunteers, including a House Manager, Assistant Manager and a Board of Directors. Donations fuel and fund most of the operating costs with CSSUP making up the difference. Alpha Omega believes that faith in a Creator (God) is necessary for a complete and successful recovery and so spiritual components will be visible in this facility.
Alpha Omega Residential Recovery Home believes that chemical and/or drug and alcohol dependency is something that affects the individual, family members and their community.
The rehabilitation can best be addressed with an array of services provided by caring professionals involving the individual, family and community, centered on Christ. Specifically, our mission is to provide a safe housing environment based on mutual dignity and respect, promote well-being, and encourage positive social contribution through faith.
The staff at Alpha Omega believes that all of these collective components will promote success of our mission and the residents’ recovery.
Alpha Omega house serves the community by providing a sober living environment for men making the transition from addiction to sobriety. If you meet the following criteria, follow the house rules, and are willing to go to any length to achieve sobriety, you are welcome here.
