The Ladder project is DHMAS licensed halfway house for homeless men as the next step to a sober life., after they have completed a drug/alcohol treatment program. It is the only program of its kind for men in Bergen County.
The Ladder Project uses established treatment strategies combined with the 12-step philosophy, peer support and clinically-orientated counseling interventions to help its members achieve success in returning to mainstream society and live a productive, substance-free life. Members gain insight and self-awareness into the disease of addiction, while learning coping skills to manage their behavior and ultimately, to envision recovery as an attainable goal.
