Recovery Assistance Program

The Recovery Assistance Program is dedicated to providing men & women with a sober living environment structured to facilitate their transition into both the recovering community and society. The goal for our program is to provide a safe, clean, and supportive recovery environment with services that help nurture the development of a healthy recovering support system. While providing structure and support, we also guide our residents in developing the necessary tools that eventually lead them to live in recovery on their own.

Program Services:  We have three phases to our program.  Each phase is designed to be approximately 3 months in length but will vary upon each individual.  In Phase One the focus is on oneself, engaging in treatment, acquiring recovery skills, and attending recovery support groups.  Phase Two focuses on job readiness and the acquisition of necessary skills to obtain and maintain employment.  Phase Three focuses on transition.  Once employed residents plan for transition to independent living.  They create a budget, live off that budget and learn to be responsible for paying their bills.  Throughout the three phases they learn to live in relationship with others, manage difficult emotions, seek support, and build trust.  We require our residents to attend 12 step meetings, attend a minimum of one weekly women’s/men’s group and weekly house meetings, and adhere to our common sense house rules. The combination of therapeutic and recovery support greatly increases the chance of achieving continuous recovery from substance use disorders. The Recovery Assistance Program does more than just provide a house to live in; it helps residents develop life skills necessary to live in recovery. In addition to providing a structured supportive living environment, the program includes, individual and group counseling, social support, responsibility and accountability, structure and recovery integration. There is magic in learning interpersonal relationship skills only experienced in a “family” structured like environment. The program provides a safe stress-free environment for this learning, most often, without this experience, individuals relapse.
