Halfway house residents are working on reintegrating back into society as law-abiding, productive citizens. Counsellors are available at all hours to help residents with problems. If, for instance, a resident passes by a part of town where he used to get high and is finding it difficult to stay away from old drug sources, his counsellor will help him work on staying clean. If potential employers are refusing to speak to a resident or interview her because of her past, a counsellor can intervene.
