Our Homes provide a safe and structured environment to learn and grow. Counseling and mentorship is provided and encouraged. Individuals are required to seek employment to help support themselves. Working a program of recovery to stay clean & sober is also required. Participation in household chores, activities, house meetings, outside recovery meetings and church is mandatory.
In Bradenton we are centrally located, close to the downtown area in a well-kept neighborhood near U.S.41 and Cortez Rd. Our Sarasota home is conveniently located near interstate 75. Both our homes are close to bus stops, restaurants, shopping areas, recovery meetings and other amenities that provide convenience for outside activities. Our homes are clean, and located in secluded and quiet neighborhoods.
Our Staff has a heart for the addict and alcoholic. We all have been touched by someone in addiction. Most, if not all of our staff is in recovery as well. We know by personal experience what it takes to get clean, stay clean and live a productive sober life.
Our homes are grounded by trusting in the Lord with the connection and guidance offered by 12 Step programs. We integrate the programs of AA, NA and AL-Anon. We also participate in 12-step bible studies and attend church. As a client you are required to attend meetings, obtain a sponsor, work the steps, and practice the spiritual principals of recovery.
Can you do both faith and recovery? We believe Bill Wilson was divinely inspired by God and The Oxford Group in the conception of " The AA Program", and that it is based upon spiritual principals. This combination provides the ability to walk through life with the power provided by knowing Jesus Christ and having the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We ask our clients to keep an open mind and decide for themselves.
