The Pathfinder Mission
The mission of The Pathfinder, Inc. is to assist men and women suffering from the devastating effects of the disease of addiction to learn skills that lead to a responsible, clean and sober way of life. Since 1976, The Pathfinder, Inc. has provided long-term crisis residential rehabilitation services to over 1,500 men and women who were diagnosed with alcohol and/or drug dependence.
The Pathfinder is a crisis residential rehabilitation program that provides follow-up treatment for chemically dependent men and women. The Pathfinder program requires a minimum of a 90 day commitment and a desire to be sober. Clients may request additional extensions beyond the initial 90 day commitment, 30 days at a time. Clients can stay up to 12 months past their initial 90 day commitment.
The Pathfinder program provides clients with an alcohol and drug-free environment, food, shelter and other basic needs of everyday living. Clients receive individual and group counseling regarding their addiction, as well as independent living skills training, voluntary spiritual counseling, transportation assistance (for the first 30 days as available), and financial guidance. The Pathfinder provides connections to additional community resources with the ultimate goals of maintaining sobriety and living independently. The Pathfinder, Inc. is the only agency providing residential rehabilitation in Madison County that is certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health. The Pathfinder provides a comprehensive, structured, and clinically proven recovery program utilizing certified, professionally trained staff in the implementation of policies and services.
