“People, places, things” is a common phrase used in the recovery community.  Who we spend our time with, where we go, and the things we surround ourselves with. . .all of these impact who we are and the decisions that we make.  Many times, people in early recovery have to give up everything they’ve known:  who they hang out with – friends, significant others and family – as well as where they go and things they do because those "people, places, and things" put them at risk for relapse or continued use.  


When people are newly sober, they are moving from a culture of addiction to a culture of recovery.  Recovery housing gives them the time and support needed to change those behaviors that were required for life and death survival in the culture of addiction.  Through a community of support, people practice new behaviors that will help them thrive in their communities and sustain long-term recovery.  It’s a place where people fit in, have common experiences and goals, and can be authentic without having to explain their addiction or recovery needs.


It’s what home should feel like.
