RESIDENT: Resident Application





At this time, River accepts only private-forms of payment, and we provide for Men only aged 18 years and older who are not currently on parole.  Past terms of parole are not immediate dis-qualifiers.  It’s not about the individual, it’s about the environment, which is unique to every other sober living house in Idaho. Law enforcement bed-checks and house-searches are not a part of our environment, and our residents are all self-motivated in their recovery.

Upon receiving an application, River will contact the applicant via a phone call to set up an in-person interview at the prospective River House with either the Live-In House Manager or the Director of River.  Over-the-phone interviews can be conducted if the applicant's circumstances require it.  You meet us, and we meet you.

River is a zero-tolerance sober living house.  If relapse occurs, the Residency Agreement will be terminated and the individual must leave the River House under the direction of River Management, which could be to leave immediately. In this case, River will take steps to try and help ensure the individual has a place to go. The individual is welcomed and encouraged to reapply after a 30-day period. This is NOT an imposed penalty. In the Founder's experience of living in over (10) sober living houses and now operating them, it is the only way to keep a house a legitimately sober and safe environment, and not a house where people don't use or drink that much but continue to live there. It is what is best for our River Houses and the rest of the individuals living there.

In case of relapse and your Residency Agreement is terminated, do you have any plans in place?


If yes, what are they? Paragraph
