Crossroads Counseling Services is proud to announce the opening of its first Sober Living House in January of 2017. The house provides a supportive home for four women in recovery, offering a structured drug-free environment for these women to learn necessary skills for independent living. A Certified Peer Recovery Supporter is available for the residents throughout their stay in the home. Residents are expected to pay rent, abide by house rules, and remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol throughout their stay in the house.
Sheena Robbins, Sober Living House Director, is excited for the newest asset to Crossroads. Noting its benefits, she said, "It serves as a place for those in recovery to foster a sense of community, to thrive, to change and to implement real steps that lead to a restored life by utilizing the principle of peer support. The ultimate goal for our residents is to achieve independent living."
Clients have expressed a lot of positive feedback on the new program as well, acknowledging the difficult process of regaining independent living after going through active addiction.
Crossroads is looking to open another Sober Living House for men in the future.
