Frequently Asked Questions About Real Recovery
How much does Real Recovery cost?
Monthly cost of Real Recovery varies based on program intensity, structure, and residence. Please call to learn more about which program is right for you and what financial commitments would be necessary.
Do you offer financial aid?
Yes! We offer financing options in certain cases. For details on pricing and financial aid, check out our cost and financing page.
What should I bring?
Anything that makes you feel comfortable. Toiletries are a necessity. We provide linens and shower towels. If you would like a television in your room, you can bring it but there are big flat screen televisions in all living areas. You can bring a video game system if you would like.
Can I have my car?
You can bring your car, but for the first 30 days, Real Recovery residents must stay on the property. This time is crucial for getting to know the other residents and being a part of the group.
Can I have a cell phone or computer?
It is a requirement that you have a cell phone. We need to be able to get in contact with you at any point in time during the day. You also need to have a phone to contact your sponsor and to arrange for transportation. We have 2 house computers that can be used by clients but you are more than welcome to bring a laptop as well.
Can friends and family visit?
We welcome everyone who is interested in our recovery program to come for a family visit.
Does Real Recovery drug test?
Yes, we conduct random drug testing 2-3 times per week. All drug tests are sent off to a laboratory so that we can detect any synthetic drugs such as spice or kratom.
How many clients stay in each room?
We have 2-4 clients per room.
Does Real Recovery provide food?
Yes, all food is included in the monthly program cost.
Does Real Recovery provide transportation?
Yes, we provide transportation. However, Real Recovery residents are not allowed to work 3rd shift because we do not provide transportation between the hours of 11pm and 7am.
What does a day at Real Recovery look like?
We wake up at 8:30am on the weekdays and 9am on the weekends. Each morning residents get up and conduct a morning meditation. Morning meditation consists of a reading from a “day by day” book for recovering individuals that is followed by everyone going around and stating what they plan on doing for the day. This provides a level of accountability and structure.
Upon arrival, each new resident completes an assessment with a member of our clinical team to determine if our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) should be incorporated into their first two months at Real Recovery. Most men and women are a good fit for the intensive outpatient. The classes are every Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9:30am to 12:30pm. During the days IOP is not conducted, residents are kept busy with various activities.
We are a long-term program, so not all of our men and women are at the same stage of recovery. Some will be going immediately to work; some may be going on a hike or going swimming. All of our residents receive a gym pass to Gold’s Gym. We require each resident to go to at least 4 group meetings a week (Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or Celebrate Recovery) that are outside of the house.
Each resident’s program is specially created to suit their needs. We know where our residents are 24/7 and always keep parents informed along the way.
