Since 1992, our Residential
Treatment Programs have been
family-owned and operated.
We determine your individual needs during the intake process, then work very hard to serve them accordingly.
When a person arrives at our drug and alcohol detox program, he or she is greeted by skilled and compassionate professionals who will help begin the admissions process. The first step in this process is to conduct an initial intake; which is performed by a medical professional.
The intake assessment helps both the medical and clinical teams understand exactly which detox services the client needs most. Since the detox process is a vital step in early recovery, it is critical that both addicts and alcoholics receive the most personalized treatment available.
The door to this house — is always open.
Clients past and present have always appreciated the fact that we have an open door policy at Genesis House. Unlike other places that may have their clinical offices at a completely separate location from their residential areas, we have someone always on campus 24/7/365. We are ALWAYS here for you.
Welcome to the family.
The fact that we’re family owned and operated has always set us apart from the larger corporations that seemingly lose touch with their clients quite easily. The majority of our staff has been a part of the Genesis family for several years. Most in double digits. That alone is very telling of who we are, what we stand for, and most of all — how we do business.
Our founder, James Dodge, dedicated his life to helping fellow addicts and alcoholics achieve long-term sobriety.
After spending one year in the Crossroads Program of Eureka California, James Dodge reentered the community of Eureka sober and healthy. James, more often referred to as Tony, gained employment at the Etowah program assisting mentally challenged teens with their daily tasks. After approximately a year at Etowah, Crossroads called Tony and offered him a position as Counselor II In training. Tony held this position for one year helping fellow addicts and alcoholics get clean.
In 1982, Tony moved to Florida and worked at noted treatment centers Benmar, NRI and Care. During this period, Tony realized that inpatient treatment was critical and essential for the client, but after treatment was completed, very few aftercare support facilities existed in the area. The clients often returned home or to other living environments that were dysfunctional and did not promote recovery.
After much thought and investigation, Tony took a risk by resigning from his job at NRI and began the process of creating Genesis House. Tony rented a triplex building in Lake Worth, FL situated on 5 acres of secluded land. He implemented a recovery residence where addicts and alcoholics could live after inpatient treatment. The early Genesis model allowed the resident to gain daytime employment after a period of time. All residents had to attend daily AA meetings, in-house Genesis meetings and pay their rent on a weekly basis. All clients had to abide by curfews, get a sponsor, and remain clean or sober.
Tony realized that inpatient treatment was critical and essential for the client, but after treatment was completed, very few aftercare support facilities existed in the area.
After a brief period of time, Genesis became a success with 30 some residents living, staying clean and moving on with their lives. Over the years, Genesis slowly changed and transformed into a highly respected full service addiction treatment and dual diagnosis program that has been operating for now almost 30 years in Palm Beach County, Florida.
