Do you provide transportation for halfway house residents?
Yes, we can provide transportation as necessary for you to attend AA or NA meetings, and to attend outpatient appointments.
How can I be sure other residents won’t discuss me with people outside the halfway house?
It is a condition of our program that participants respect one another confidentiality and do not discuss the program or its members with anyone who isn’t themselves a part of the program. Since most residents divulge personal experiences and information during group therapy sessions, there tends to be a mutual respect for confidentiality at our sober homes and our treatment facilities.
What happens if I suffer a relapse while staying at the halfway house?
Unfortunately, if you test positive for drugs or alcohol while resident in a halfway house, the management may ask you to leave for 72 hours. However, we will do our utmost to provide you with continued treatment and to readmit you to a halfway house when you can demonstrate consistent progress towards sobriety.
How long will I need to stay at a sober living halfway house?
The duration of tenure varies, depending on the needs of each individual. However, a stay of between six months and a year is a realistic expectation.
Can I participate in your intensive outpatient program without staying at a halfway house?
Yes, in fact the intensive outpatient program is advantageous to clients who wish to remain in their normal home and community. You can apply what you learn immediately in a real-world environment and you won’t need to make the big adjustment from institutional to independent living.
How many group therapy sessions must I attend each week?
If you are enrolled in our intensive outpatient program, you are expected to attend three sessions per week. If you are in the standard outpatient program, you should attend two group sessions and one session of individual therapy per week.
Can I come and go as I please when staying at a halfway house?
Yes, within reason. You will be expected to take employment or to do volunteer work as a condition of your stay with us, so you will need the freedom to do your job. You are also free to go out and do your own thing, as long as it’s not drug or alcohol-related. However we do enforce a strict curfew, so you must be on the halfway house premises during the hours of curfew.
