About The Founder of Genesis House
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 and sober.
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 patients 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 situated on 4 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.
After a brief period of time Genesis became a success with some 30 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 24 years in Palm Beach County Florida.
