Casa Santa Clara for Men

OPCS operates eleven recovery communities in Tucson, with a bed capacity of over 300 beds.  Working closely with multiple federal, state and community partners, we are able to offer an array of enhanced and graduated supportive services within the Casa Santa Clara for Men programs, which include:

  • Well-furnished housing units with all the comforts of home
  • Properties located near city bus lines
  • Individualized case management
  • Staff on site 24 hours for support and guidance
  • Substance abuse counseling and recovery support
  • Employability skills training
  • Employment placement
  • Family reunification, and
  • Assistance with obtaining public benefits.


Fundamental to the client's success at Old Pueblo Community Services is recovery from substance abuse/addiction and participation in the outpatient substance abuse counseling services that are offered to adult men who are currently living in the Casa Santa Clara for Men Transitional Living Program.  The goal is to improve wellness by managing and/or reducing addiction symptoms while moving toward a better understanding of any underlying conditions that encourage the development or exacerbation of addiction symptoms. 

Core services include:

  • Therapeutic Process Group each week
  • Recovery Workshop each week
  • Individual Counseling Sessions and Treatment Plan 
  • Peer support groups delivered by Peer Recovery Support Specialists and
  • Social events for current clients and alumni. 

While the men are not required to receive addiction counseling services, recovery is a requirement of participation at Casa Santa Clara. Therefore, most men participate in the program for a period of 90 days.  There is no specific maximum amount of time that men may remain enrolled.  In general, when the person in recovery feels they have met the goals of their service plan, staff will begin the process of helping to transition to the next appropriate level of services. 

In addition, some clients may recognize that they are in need of other services, which can result in a referral for outside supports from other providers while remaining enrolled in the program, or may result in discharge from the program and referral to a higher or lower level of service.
