In a traditional weekday, residents will attend a 9 a.m. morning recovery meeting, often lead by owner, Jon Clarke, LCAS. During this time residents will check in with the house by discussing their plans for the day and any obstacles that may be impending personal recovery or growth.
This group is also facilitated by the 12-step process and spiritual readings. After the morning meeting most residents will attend school or go to work. Residents not working or in school, especially during those in their first 45 days, will attend either NA or AA 12-step meetings, go to the gym, fellowship, or take part in structured activities such as hiking and other outside activities.
Additionally, the house hosts two house meetings a week on Thursday and Sunday to discuss house issues. There are also two 12-step meetings a week on property; one open discussion bonfire meeting, and one book study. This makes a total of 9 staff facilitated meetings on property a week. These small meetings tend to provide a safe, less intimidating environment for individuals to really disclose where they are at in their recovery.
