Sustained recovery requires a holistic, person-centered approach
We accomplish this by designing our program around four domains
What: Encourage residents to own their recovery as a lifelong and holistic process
Example: Residents attend a minimum number of recovery support meetings and meet with a mentor weekly
What: Foster peer to peer support and interpersonal relationships between residents and staff
Example: Residents are encouraged to attend a monthly house sponsored outing of their choosing
What: Peers and staff share house governance in meaningful ways
Example: Residents have a sense of ownership by voting on whether applicants are accepted into the house
What: Promote a "functionally equivalent family" atmosphere
Example: Furnishings, interiors, and resident privacy are designed around the question "Would I want to live here?"
House management follows industry best practices and adheres to a strict Code of Ethics
