We promote independent living in a structured family environment.


Our structured environment includes, but is not exclusive to the following:

  • Pay weekly fees on time

  • 1 weekly bible discussion (optional)

  • 1 weekly house meeting

  • 3 weekly self help groups/support groups or daily if not working full time

  • 2 weekly drug compliance testing, as well as random tests and breathalizing

  • 1 monthly life skills night


If a woman is not working, she will need to volunteer (according to her abilities), be attending school, participating in a program, or an agreed upon productive activity. This is to encourage women to be active  and productive in their recovery. 
Each member is responsible to keep bedroom neat and clean, clean up after herself, and complete house chores.
Each recovery agreement will be tailored to the individual woman’s needs.  

House standards are to ensure the safety and cohesive behaviors of everyone in the house.

Recovery/wellness coaching

Sober House Structure

Recovery/Wellness Coaches assist participants in developing a comprehensive wellness plan, that addresses their goals. Coaches encourage and accompany participants, when needed, to appointments and meetings in order to enhance their recovery experience (AA, Faith based, Smart Recovery, etc.) We help clients navigate recovery support systems, remove barriers, and access resources. This includes but is not exclusive to assisting with health and wellness, housing, employment, and other professional and non-professional services.  Coaches help clients to recognize attitudes and patterns of behavior that can hinder their success.  Focus is placed on how thoughts and attitudes influence behaviors.  Positive changes happen by increasing understanding of self, learning to apply tools, and taking ownership of our health and wellness.
