Admittance

With guidance from The Home’s Board of Trustees, the co-managers handle all admissions.

They work together to determine if each applicant has a sincere desire to live sober, and is willing to follow all house rules. They may choose to admit him as soon as a space is available within the 14-bed facility.

Applicants may apply directly for admission, or be referred by a family member, friend, physician, clergy member, employer, social services agency, or detoxification center. To qualify for admission, applicants must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be sober and drug-free
  • Submit to and pass a drug test
  • Have no history of violent behavior
  • Have an AA sponsor with at least one year of sobriety
  • Disclose their full personal, medical, psychological, financial, and legal history
  • Pay rent
  • Be employed or seek employment
  • Regularly attend AA and Home meetings
  • Perform daily household and maintenance chores
  • Agree to random drug testing at management discretion
