Transitional Housing

CCMI's transitional housing program is a 9-12 month highly structured residential recovery program for men in recovery from drugs and alcohol who are homeless or at risk of becoming homelessness. CCMI's program seeks to give men everything they need to maintain a life free of drugs and alcohol. We strongly prefer to receive residents straight from a hospital detoxification unit.

The application process involves the following steps:

1) Online Application -- The online application may be completed by clicking the button below.

2) Initial Interview – We want to get to know applicants to see if our program would be a good fit for them and if they are a good fit for the program. It’s an intense, programmed day with every hour planned from the moment they get up to the moment they sleep. It is designed to get the brain free from the fog of addiction and includes a rigorous schedule of in -house and outside AA meetings. There are also chores both at the house, in the neighborhood and at our partner church.

3) Criminal background check – We will do this for free. Applicants need to simply come into the community center with your identification during our regular hours and fill out a form, or print from online below and email or fax to us. A copy of your ID is required to complete the background check. Please note: because of our involvement with the church and proximity to the church, we are unable to house sex-offenders, anyone with an offense related to children, or anyone with an active warrant. We may admit individuals with warrants to the program once it is resolved by serving time or through conversation with the court or probation office.

4) Health Checks – If an applicant is coming from detox or the hospital, it is best to complete the following tests while there. If an applicant is not coming form detox or the hospital, he needs to go to the Bibb County Board of Health to screen for the following diseases: RPR, Hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, and Tuberculosis skin test (or chest X-ray), and diabetes testing. In the case of a positive RPR or TB skin test, an applicant must receive treatment before. In the case of diabetes, stable blood sugar and medicine and medical supplies are required before admittance.

Please note: The completion of these requirements does not guarantee admittance into the program. Applicants will not be considered until all of the above tests and paperwork is completed. If admitted after meeting all of the above requirements, it could take up to 3 business days to be admitted into the program.
