Long-term Recovery Program

Twelve Way Foundation is a Christ centered peer-to-peer substance abuse halfway house and recovery support facility located in northeast Texas in operation since 2004. Twelve Way is designed to provide men struggling with addiction an opportunity for the Second Phase of recovery in a structured sober living environment. Our program aids in the process of returning men to being responsible family members and productive contributors of society. Twelve Way is dedicated with providing the services listed below for the long-term program:


  • Interface with Criminal Justice System (i.e., Adult Supervision, D.A., County Judge)
  • Employment assistance
  • Transportation to and from work
  • GED tutoring
  • Housing
  • Meals
  • Daily recovery meetings

Twelve Way conducts weekly Phase evaluations based on the resident’s daily requirements and clients must agree to the adherence of all the criteria that we believe determines their progress during a minimum of a 6 month course of stay here.

Resident Requirements/Criteria

  • Attending daily meetings aimed at building a personal relationship with God
  • Willingness to be a participating member of their recovery classes
  • Maintaining a full-time job
  • Paying a nominal program fee which teaches each resident how to responsibly manage their income and allows them the opportunity to finance a portion of their recovery
  • Adhering to house guidelines
  • Passing a pre-entrance 12 panel drug screen plus a daily or weekly random test

Twelve Way is not a detox facility and is not equipped for the First Phase of recovery. We ask that each prospective resident have no less than a 28 day detox before they submit an application to be reviewed for approval (i.e., a minimum: 28 days of incarceration if the applicant is already in jail). We recognize this detox period as the first important step in the process that helps the client withdrawal physically from the symptoms that produce learning limitations and prepares a heart of gratitude towards the offered opportunity for extended recovery. Our program caters to the men who want a new way of life free from addiction and we recommend this course of action for their long term success. If we can provide you assistance, please call for additional information.

Commitment to Recovery

In order to fulfill our mission to help those who are addicted, the halfway house of Twelve Way Foundation requires a personal commitment from each man who enters Twelve Way Foundation. This commitment is made in the following four areas: financial responsibility, program responsibility, academic commitment, and personal attitude.

Financial Responsibility

It is understood that any man requiring the services of a halfway house is in desperate need of assistance in managing his finances. He must not only secure employment that will not interfere with his program, but he must also learn to be responsible with the money he earns. His immediate and first priority must be to support the very program by which he hopes to recover from his addiction.  A failure to meet these priorities will undermine any further effort to recover in a halfway house setting and must be viewed as the need for some other kind of treatment.

Non-compliance on the part of any resident to fulfill these commitments throughout their course of stay here will result in immediate dismissal.
