MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of our Foundation is to aid and educate individuals and families on substance abuse and help those that are battling the disease of addiction.

Sober Living Environment Overview

It is our belief that recovery is possible for ANYONE, if they are ready. 

Our House is home that offers a structured, safe, clean drug free environment and a positive setting to engage in life outside of a treatment setting.  We are spiritually based and use the 12 principles of recovery as a foundation for living.  We offer a family experience, where individuals can rely on each other in both good times and bad.

Residents are required to actively and aggressively pursue recovery and will be guided through the process by incorporating a diverse group of peer mentors. This will take place in a group and in an individual setting.

A structured schedule allows for educational groups, individualized mentoring, personal reflection, and life-skill building tasks.

Throughout your stay at Our House random drug and breathalyzer tests will be administered regularly with no prior notice.

COST:  The current Fees fee schedule is $600.00 per month or $150.00 per week, to be paid in advance.

A fee of $150 will be collected before move in date and will be applied to residents first week upon arrival date.

In recovery responsibility and accountability play a significant role for each individual and the community.  We believe that each Resident should be accountable for their actions and that of their housemates.  Each member of the community is expected to engage in the structure and activities the house provides.

Our House is equipped with a 24-hour surveillance system and a keyless entry system individualized for each Resident.

ADMISSION

Our House is a Sober Community for alcohol or drug addicted men seeking recovery, 18 years or older.  Everyone must pass a thirteen-panel drug test as part of the admission process (tests are administered at check-in).

We are a non-medical and non-clinical home, so as a result, we are private pay only. Insurance is not accepted.  Weekly fees are discussed after initial review.

Potential Residents will be subject to a phone interview, and a face-to-face interview to be accepted to Our House.  Residents will be notified of admission status within 24 hours of their interview.

The Residents of Our House are expected to conduct themselves and their behavior as individuals being productive members of a community and society.  The house is guided by the principles of the twelve-steps.  We believe that people make mistakes and will utilize a three-strike policy for correction of behaviors that go against our guiding principles.  The Director has a full list of correctible offense that include, but are not limited to:
