The two that have impressed me the most were Jefferson House in Detroit which is a min of a year long and included life skills, money management, employment and various levels of responsibilty as well as substance abuse treatment. They also continue to follow up on you after the year and you can still come to all their meetings, even daily. By the way, they do except criminal justice clients which means you can go to one of the 1 month ones and from there go to Jefferson house on referal by a PO.
The other one I cant remember the name of but it was very much the same except for women and was in the Ottawa, Canada area. The employment was in womens shelters which really helped the addict to feel like a worthwhile person. It was also long term and continued with follow up after release from the program.
