Along with education, group process and counseling, our social model approach to recovery emphasizes the principles of AA’s twelve step program; “More people are clean and sober today as a result of AA’s twelve step program than all other treatment methods combined” (Kessler 1997).
Our group focus and peer oriented approach to recovery quickly help our clients (who we refer to as residents) to get grounded in recovery through the fellowship and camaraderie established in a social model, home-like setting.
We believe that the longer one remains in a structured, drug and alcohol free environment with the support of staff and peers, the better their chances of maintaining long term recovery. the goal of this phase of our program is to insure a smooth transition, making sure that employment and suitable housing arrangements are in place prior to discharge.
Group Sober Living is available by referral upon completion of our program. Here residents benefit from affordable housing in a supportive, drug and alcohol free, recovery oriented environment (maximum one year stay).
