Substance abuse treatment service licensed by aluehallintovirasto

Samaria Home is a substance-free residential service unit for substance abuse treatment. The unit is intended for homeless individuals whose ability to live independently has temporarily or permanently diminished. Long-term placements are also possible. Residents have the opportunity to receive housing allowance from Kela (the Social Insurance Institution of Finland).

The home fosters a communal living environment, where residents voluntarily participate in household responsibilities according to their abilities and skills.

The emphasis is on service and care. By care, we mean a strong commitment to the overall well-being of the individual. Additionally, key elements include a supportive atmosphere for rehabilitation, safety, good nutrition, and hygiene.

A personalized service plan is created for each resident, taking into account their personality and needs. We aim to accommodate individual preferences for activities such as exercise or other hobbies when necessary.

We support self-initiative in daily life tasks such as cleaning and personal hygiene. To receive assistance, we encourage residents to engage in discussions with staff and participate in various peer support groups. Assistance is provided through psychosocial means within a Christian framework.

We provide service guidance and assist residents with healthcare and official matters as needed. Service guidance involves assessing the need for various external services important to the resident and ensuring their implementation. Ensuring that residents access the right help at the right time is crucial for rehabilitation, if not paramount for success.

We support the establishment and maintenance of constructive social relationships, as well as achieving financial balance, for example, by guiding debt restructuring or other debt management arrangements.

As rehabilitation progresses, we work together with the resident and referring party to build pathways to rehabilitative work activities, education, employment, supported housing, or independent living.
