Sober Living Environment Overview

It is our belief that recovery is possible for ANYONE, if they are ready. 

Michael's House is home 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.

Everyone is 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 Michael’s House random drug and breathalyzer tests will be administered regularly with no prior notice.

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.

Michael’s House is equipped with a 24-hour surveillance system and a keyless entry system individualized for each guest.
