If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction issues, we can assist in finding recovery housing, since we operate multiple WAQRR approved recovery houses. We are not a recovery facility though and we don’t offer counseling! But when you complete either DeTox or a treatment program, you may be able, if eligible, to enter one of our supervised recovery houses for up to two years while you continue to stay sober and in recovery while building a new life.
Field assessments for determining the client's needs.
Our supervised housing program helps you stay focused on recovery
Giving a hand up and walking the willing through the process for success.

My name is Mark. We met at Coffee Cup. I have 58 days sober. I have been to 2 meetings today. I got 9 numbers at Grand meet and called all 9 looking for telephonic AA because I don’t have energy to bus to [a] 3rd meet. You are the 10th and only AA member left in my phone. 58 days is a lot for me to give up, but the more unanswered calls the stronger the urge. I guess I will get up and bus to meet. Sobriety is harder than anything I have done in a perpetually hard life. Call if you get time. I need a hand to reach out and take mine. It seeming phonier and phonier with each unanswered call. I will never give my number out to myself feel good. I will do it to reach back as AA preaches…Carlos called back and so did over half of the Grand numbers I called. This kind of caring and fellowship has fortified my resolve. Thank you Bud, please know that you talked a dry drunk off the ledge tonight. I will be okay for today and I know if I am not, I got someone who understands to call. Chalk one up for the good guys today and you are a very good man. Bus coming to take me to meet. Peace be upon you, you brought me some today.
In 2012 Robert Smiley was seriously working the Alcoholics Anonymous Program for the first time. He had spent most of his life drinking, drugging, violent, in and out of prison, and at times homeless. He had tried AA and getting sober before, but sobriety was fleeting. This time, he was just tired. Tired of hustling for his next high, tired of being separated from his wife, tired of everything. He started attending smaller AA meetings, where people talked about how they were using the AA steps, getting through their days, sometimes getting tripped up, but always getting back to the steps under the guidance of their sponsors.
