Our Purpose

Founded in 2010, The Exodus House is a residential treatment program for adult men recovering from addictions.  We are an abstinence based, long-term, 12-step recovery program.  We have two live-in staff and house only four residents at a time, each in their own bedroom, in order to create a family atmosphere that helps residents find serenity.

 Our Purpose is to offer a program that empowers residents to live sober and sustainable lives.
