SOBER LIVING ENVIRONMENT OVERVIEW
It is our belief that recovery is possible for ANYONE, if they are ready.
Our House are homes 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 steps 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 fee schedule is $600.00 per month or $150.00 per week, to be paid in advance.
In recovery responsibility and accountability play a significant role for each individual and the community. We believe that each guest 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 guest.
Michael's 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).
