• build a foundation of honesty and trust with yourself and those around you
  • focus on learning to live in the “normal“ world and learn how to deal with everyday stresses of life while clean and sober
  • learn positive behaviors and habits that will stay with you when you leave

A Structured Setting

  • Weekly chores
  • Mandatory house meeting.
    Restoring  Lives Sunday night at 6:00 P.M.
  • Curfew Sunday thru Thursday home at 11:00 P.M. lights out at 11:30 P.M.
  • Weekends home by 12:00 A.M. lights out at 12:30 A.M.

Restoring  Lives enforces a schedule designed to promote gradual and sustainable recovery.

Everyone is required to attend daily 12 Step, counseling, or smart recovery meetings in their first 90 days of sobriety and a minimum of three meetings each week thereafter.
Restoring Lives has a relapse policy that requires those not passing a weekly drug screen to go into residential treatment before they can reside in the home. They are required to leave immediately for treatment. If they choose not to get treatment, the resident is no longer allowed to stay in the program.

Why have house meetings?

House meetings are necessary to maintain a positive and supportive environment. Therefore they are mandatory for all house guests.

House meetings are held every Sunday at 6:00 P.M.

The objective of the meeting is to support the keystone philosophy and bring issues to the group for discussion and resolution.

Meeting Format

  • Management will provide a weekly update
  • Each guest will have a limited time to articulate problems experienced during the past week.
  • Problems that require extensive discussion will be discussed with management prior to the weekly house meeting.
  • Group resolution will be reached and implemented
  • Each meeting ends with a prayer for serenity
