Requirements for Residency

Individuals interested in living at our Recovery Residences can apply directly to the Housing Coordinator. If there are vacancies and the applicant meets our admission criteria, an interview will be scheduled. The interview with an applicant involves all members of the house. 80% percent of the house residents must vote to accept the applicant as a roommate.

Applicants should consider if Sober Housing is truly a good fit for them. Anyone may refer to our program.

Individuals must be drug and alcohol free for 30 days or more. Individuals are expected to currently be participating in a 12-step recovery program, attend a minimum of three (3) meetings a week, willing to accept the house rules and expectations, be gainfully employed (or actively seeking employment) and able to pay their rent. Residents on Disability are required to work or volunteer at least 20 hours a week.

Counselor Pre-Screening: Substance abuse counselors are the primary source of referrals. Getting a solid match between the individual and our Recovery Residences is important, as residents who are disruptive and not serious about recovery can cause serious problems for a house. Counselors can be a big help if they take the time to pre-screen potential referrals, the following criteria are afforded for use:

Willing and able to live in a shared housing setting
Has shown reasonable behavior in recovery group setting
The individual is serious about her recovery?
Does the individual have a recovery plan when she finishes treatment?
