Do you use AA/NA 12- Steps for a Program?

We Do NOT and if you knew, No other Organization does! Despite what they might claim.
We respect those 12-Step Programs fully. Their Traditions (Of Non-Affiliation) make it clear. They AA/ NA are NOT affiliated with any other business enterprise or organization...Including Courts & Churches.
We do in Fact, Insist on Meeting attendance, as a part of OUR Program , but we are NOT affilaited and Nor do we "Teach" the 12-steps.
AA/NA do that through their membership(s).
If accepted YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO  ATTEND AA OR NA MEETINGS- NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!

Why we reject other models for Houses?

Well, We do support some models out there/available However, many of the Per-led centers place newcomers in a very precarious position, bei9ng led by other new people.
We define New People as any addict/alcoholic with under 15 years of Recovery.
Many of those in these houses, are there TOO SOON... Way TOO SOON, having only 1 Year or less in Recovery.. Why they could be a periodic, resting up for a big binge..

There is no substitute for Experience. Especially when we are dealing with people's lives!!

After an addict/alcoholic has a Good Foundation, for Recovery and Has it as a Priority in their Lives.. These Peer-Led Centers and Houses can be a great way to save money and live in a sober/clean environment.. Then We support them Fully!

One Last thing on this...
That is the Money Factor.. Most of these Recovery Houses force newcomers to wrongly prioritize their lives... Placing huge importance, On Employment (getting a Job) and House Payment contributions.
We do not, and We Provide an alternative... to allow Recovery to be THE PRIORITY!

Do You Offer Job Training and Employment?

Yes, We do!

In Fact, we do not allow Outside employment while in stages of the program.

We offer skills training, and work. (Paid work and training).
We evaluate your skills and training and get work for you...

Workdays are limited to 5-6 Hours Daily. Your focus and priority is Recovery!
This scheduling for work, and training, allows you to have a Priority- Your Recovery!

You will also be participating, in ALL House Programs. It is packed schedule. You will not be bored!
