We want to take this time to welcome you, whether you decide to come to our house or not,to a new way of living. Recovery is an awesome thing and it really helps to have the support of others who are going through the same things you are, and are trying to better themselves. As the owner of the house, I know how you feel. I am also in long-term recovery and know how much better life can be! We decided to open the houses to help new persons in recovery have a real chance at success. I stayed in a recovery house for 6 months and have no doubt that it was at the recovery house where I learned how to use the tools that I had been taught in treatment. I will always be grateful for that experience.
We started with a house for men, and more recently a house for women. You must go to 12 Step meetings, get a sponsor and actively be working a program of recovery. There are rules to follow, chores to do, and lots to learn about yourself and recovery. To help you succeed, we have a house manager that lives on the property. His name is Edwin and he is also a person in long term recovery. He is a great example of what recovery should look like, and has lived in sober living housing himself.So awesome watching people get better.
