"Greg Sands knows the importance of community. As the owner of Sands Wall Systems, he has hundreds of team members in several surrounding states. As a philanthropist, Sands financially supports area nonprofits including Glory House and the Avera Addiction Care Center. As a previously incarcerated person, he knows firsthand how important it is for a community to support people seeking a second chance.
'If we don’t have a transitional process from incarceration to becoming a responsible, productive member of society, if we are not helping transition people, then they’re just going to continue to go back into prison,' said Sands.
For those who are able, steady employment can be a catalyst to building a fulfilling life. 'It’s critical,' said Sands. 'And [work] is healthy – mentally and physically, as well as emotionally and financially.'
Sands views employment, and the construction industry in particular, as a team atmosphere where people build things together – literally and figuratively. 'It gives people a sense of community and belonging,' he said, 'and that’s key to staying on the journey of recovery.'
'Employment is such an important piece of all of our lives,' agreed Nicole Dvorak, President and Human Resource and Compliance Officer at Glory House. 'Everybody has fulfillment when they provide a service.'
At Glory House, Dvorak has seen the impact a paycheck can have on their clients, and it can be life changing. 'They’re starting to make those contributions to their family where maybe they haven’t provided support for a number of years,' she said.
And as the employment relationship grows, so does the community connection. 'They start to see that they are very valuable,' said Dvorak, 'not only with people in their family, but also with people who don’t even know them.'"

Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Glory House offers holistic and evidence based alcohol and drug treatment. Our certified and licensed counselors assess the unique needs of every client. The results of this assessment determine the type and level of treatment that will best help the client resolve their addiction issues. The Intensive Outpatient Treatment program is an eight week outpatient program for treatment of alcohol and other non-stimulant drugs using the Matrix Model. The program is “evidence-based” meaning it uses methods that are proven to be effective with those suffering from addiction. During Intensive Outpatient Treatment, a small group of clients meet with a licensed or certified addiction counselor to learn about addiction and gain skills that will help them achieve sobriety and avoid relapse. Clients who successfully complete the program can continue with Aftercare meetings that provide ongoing support for their sobriety.Learn More
Glory House offers a 16-week Intensive Methamphetamine Treatment program to treat stimulant and opiate abuse. This program is designed to last longer for participants who are still recovering from the damaging effects of these drugs. Glory House uses the Matrix Model, which is an evidence-based curriculum that has been proven to successfully treat users of methamphetamine and other stimulants. After completing the 16-week program, clients can attend Aftercare meetings that reinforce what they learned in treatment and support their continued sobriety.Learn More
Glory House provides individual counseling with addiction and mental health counselors. Counselors can work with clients on an individual basis to help them manage co-occurring disorders.

Every residential client at Glory House works with a case manager to learn how to effectively handle everyday challenges that coincide with responsible life style changes. Upon arrival, clients meet with a case manager who helps them obtain immediate necessities such as an identification card, clothing and medications. Once the client has the needed documentation to begin working, they meet with an employment coordinator who will help with job readiness. The employment coordinator gives clients information on current job openings, options for transportation and helps them to build skills to obtain and maintain employment. Clients continue to work with case managers throughout their stay at Glory House to practice ways of solving problems related to medical concerns, finances, transportation, housing and social support.Learn More
