OUR MISSION

The Art of Living Home is a safe and secure sober living community. We are  focused on empowering women to achieve a life free from substance abuse and alcoholism.

We are here to provide the support, structure, and necessary tools to help you live a healthy, purposeful, and rewarding life in sobriety.

OUR VISION

We believe that an absence of life purpose opens the door to addiction. The presence of life purpose supports recovery. Passion incorporates perseverance, motivation, determination and a desire to create a life with purpose while also making a difference in the world.

WHAT IS A RECOVERY RESIDENCE?

A recovery residence is a non-medical setting designed to support recovery from substance use disorders. It is a substance-free living environment that is commonly used to help individuals transition from highly structured residential treatment programs to their day-to-day lives. For example, they may provide help in obtaining employment and establishing more permanent residence.

Recovery residences support individuals by providing a safe living environment. They also provide a community of recovery-related social support. Further, virtually all encourage or require attendance at 12 step meetings, working the steps with a sponsor, being of service, and developing a routine. Recovery residences have guidelines and rules that help the newly recovering person stay on the path of sobriety. Above all, the number one rule is NO DRUGS and NO ALCOHOL.

Our purpose at the Art of Living Home is to provide a safe and healthy living environment to initiate and sustain recovery. We define recovery primarily as abstinence from alcohol and other mind- and mood-altering substances. However, we also view improvement in one’s physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being as critical. Individuals can build resources while living in a recovery residence that will continue to support their recovery as they transition to living independently and productively in the community.

The Art of Living Home will offer you a community that nurtures and supports your abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Beyond that, we encourage and reinforce new skills that are instrumental in maintaining your sobriety. It’s been our experience that a life beyond abstinence in recovery involves:

PARTICIPATION

Participate in life activities that are healthy and meaningful, based on your needs, interests and values.

CHANGE

Change how you relate to your thoughts and emotions–especially those that are uncomfortable or painful.

DEVELOPMENT

Develop new patterns of living with conscious awareness, and move toward meaningful whole-life balance.

DISCOVERY

Discover and rediscover those parts of yourself that were buried beneath the rubble of active addiction.
