Frequently Asked Questions About Real Recovery

  1. 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.

  2. Do you offer financial aid?

  3. What should my son bring?

    Anything that makes him feel comfortable. Toiletries are a necessity. We provide linens and shower towels. If he would like a television in his room he can bring it but there are big flat screen televisions in all living areas. He can bring a video game system if he would like.

  4. Can my son have his car?

    He can bring his car, but for the first 14 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.


  1. Can my son have a cell phone or computer?

    It is a requirement that your son have a cell phone. We need to be able to get in contact with him at any point in time during the day. He also needs to have a phone to contact his sponsor and to arrange for transportation. We have 2 house computers that can be used by clients but he is more then welcome to bring has laptop as well.

  2. Can friends and family visit?

    We welcome everyone who’s interested in our recovery program to come for a family visit.

  3. 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.

  4. How many clients stay in each room?

    We have 2-4 clients per room.

  5. Does Real Recovery provide food?

    We provide Sunday Dinner every Sunday as well as another dinner one other night of the week. The rest of the meals your son will be responsible for.

  6. 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.

  1. What does a day at Real Recovery look like?

    We wake up at 8:30am on the weekdays and 9 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, all residents go through an assessment with our clinical supervisor Zach Miller to see if our intensive outpatient program should be implemented into their first couple months at Real Recovery. Most men 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 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 his needs. We know where our residents are 24/7 and always keep parents informed along the way.
