Recovery Housing

When people are newly sober, they are moving from a culture of addiction to a culture of recovery. Recovery housing gives them the time and support needed to change those behaviors that were required for life and death survival in the culture of addiction.

Recovery housing is characterized as a safe and healthy living environment that promotes abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and enhances participation and retention in traditional clinical treatment. Residents benefit from peer support and accountability, and gain valuable relapse prevention, case management and employment skills training as they transition to living independently and productively in the community.

Unifying Elements of Recovery Housing:

  • Safe, alcohol- and drug-free environment.
  • Person-driven length of stay.
  • Creating a safe, stable community of peer support.

Who is Recovery Housing For?

  • Individuals who are actively seeking recovery.
  • Individuals who desire a safe ad structured living environment with others who share the same goal of sobriety.
  • Individuals who desire to participate in supportive services, or treatment services to further their recovery.
  • Individuals at risk of homelessness because they are exiting treatment, incarceration, military duty or are living in an environment that puts them at risk for using substances
