Transforming Men’s Lives

The Wheelhouse is located in Deer Park, Texas. It is a bare bones living environment that offers help to alcohol addicted men. It’s known as the “last house on the block” because it is often the man’s last chance before he becomes homeless.
The Wheelhouse offers a two-phase program that has an exceptionally high success rate.

One reason The Wheelhouse is so successful is because those who have been helped return to help new residents. This circle of receiving help then returning to help others is a proven way to continually empower all involved and to address life’s problems without returning to substance use/abuse.

The Men’s Center is a recovery program which follows the 12-Step model of Alcoholics Anonymous and provides housing for predominately homeless men, as well as non-medical alcohol detox and drug rehabilitation.

  • We furnish on-site housing, meals, and job assistance to men recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction. We are an affordable and safe alternative for those who wish to re-enter society as productive members.

  • Being productive by obtaining employment, if able, or by volunteering in our or other charitable programs, and by paying rent are the foundation of our program. This sets us apart from other rehabilitation programs and is key to recovery.

  • We also provide continuing support for recovering men and women through open Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous.

  • The Men’s Center has been in operation since 1950 and was incorporated in the state of Texas as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1958.

  • The Men’s Center is conveniently located near downtown Houston on the Main Street public transportation corridor.

The Houses of Extra Measures offer a structured, supportive and safe 12-step inspired peer community for adult men who are determined to maintain abstinence and develop a recovery oriented lifestyle. Our homes bridge the delicate gap between inpatient treatment and independent living. A typical weekday consists of morning meditation, individual daily activities including work and a 12-step meeting, a resident prepared dinner and wrap up at 9:45pm. Our on-site staff offers recovery coaching to help residents as they work toward attaining realistic and meaningful recovery goals. While there is no minimum length of stay, we encourage residents to achieve the goals of completing the 12 steps and developing a solid foundation consisting of self-respect, self-esteem, self-efficacy and healthy, supportive friendships.
