A Safe and Sober Place
We suggest a sponsor to help you work the 12-step recovery program. A sponsor will be someone who has worked the steps and has experience guiding and mentoring others on their personal journey to long-lasting recovery. Your sponsor will meet with you weekly to progress through the steps and learn the necessary tools and principles you need to achieve sustainable sobriety. In addition, you will attend weekly meetings with other residents and sponsors. At the meetings, you will have an opportunity to share the successes and failures you are encountering on your journey and hear others’ stories. These meetings are also a great way to gain insight and to better understand your progress while making new friends and enjoying the fellowship of others in recovery.
You will also have the opportunity to join a “home-group,” a 12-step meeting that you feel comfortable attending frequently. Joining this home-group allows you to connect with others in recovery for support and accountability.
Finally, you can volunteer in your home-group by obtaining a service commitment. This is an opportunity to serve others in recovery at the meeting. It’s a way to give back and help people like yourself learn more about the principles of responsibility and commitment.
