Recovery Philosophy

Sober Living Treatment Initial Assessment

Every person's recovery journey is unique. At Real Recovery, we work with you to create a plan for your path to recovery. Here’s what you can expect your time at Real Recovery to look like:

Sober Living Treatment

Understand Client Needs

The team at Real Recovery collaborates with the client, their family and their treatment providers to develop an individualized path to recovery. The plan is customized to help clients incorporate sobriety into a meaningful, purposeful, autonomous and fun life.

Determine Level of Care

Clients whose sober living treatment needs require more than Real Recovery can provide will be referred to a trusted and appropriately matched inpatient program. Some clients at Real Recovery will need primary treatment prior to entering sober living at Real Recovery.

Develop Recovery Plan

The individualized recovery plan is holistic and incorporates the specific needs of each individual served at Real Recovery. Each plan addresses the psychological, spiritual, financial, educational and vocational needs of the client.

sober living treatment: 6-9 weeks

Structured and Supported Integration:

All clients of Real Recovery receive a comprehensive clinical assessment upon arrival and receive a clinical programming recommendation that is based on their unique needs and medical requirements. Intensive Outpatient Programming for substance abuse may be recommended for clients who have not previously participated in addiction treatment, typically for the first 6-9 weeks of residency at Real Recovery. Other clients might participate in individual or family therapy, and some may be referred to outpatient psychiatric treatment. Each resident at Real Recovery has a recovery plan designed to meet their specific needs.

Build Relationships with Peers

Through adventure-based programming, 12-step meetings and house activities, residents at Real Recovery participate in a peer-support model of recovery that honors each person’s path to recovery.

Participate in Structured Recovery

House managers who have the subjective experience of early recovery utilize house meetings and structured activities to ensure that each client at Real Recovery is supported in the transition into real recovery.

Receive Mentoring and Support

Real Recovery focuses on helping clients to forge meaningful paths in sobriety. Early recovery is often difficult; coping with the realities of life without substances to fall back on can be challenging for even the most motivated individual. Real Recovery residents receive support in money management, life skills and vocational and educational development. Assistance with employment and career selection and the employment application process are all aspects included in Real Recovery’s sober living services, as well as transportation to and from work.

Gain More Responsibilities in Transitional Living

The ultimate goal of Real Recovery is to support clients in becoming productive and autonomous in recovery.

At this state in the Men’s program, clients will move into River House, the transitional living program at Real Recovery. Providing more autonomy than the Pinnacle House or Dream House, River House helps young men begin their transition into independent living. Residents begin seeking permanent independent living arrangements and look to begin their life of recovery.

In the Women’s program, clients become more autonomous and receive assistance and support from staff in seeking employment and living arrangements after their departure from Grace House.
