The Silent Partner

The architecture and social flow of a recovery residence is often referred to as the “silent partner” in recovery. The setting can significantly support or hinder the recovery of residents attempting to establish social connections and can shape the reactions to a sober living home in an ordinary neighborhood.

The Stable Environment Model

We believe in outcomes. We contribute to stable employment and wellness. We provide support to enhance long-term recovery. We promote lives of dignity and maximum independence. The Stable Environment Model is a phenomenon in recovery, producing results not seen elsewhere.

Social Network

Connection, not sobriety, is the opposite of addiction. Connecting in healthy ways with other human beings replaces the pleasurable effects of substances. Human beings have a deep need to bond and form connections. Isolation is the enemy of recovery.

The Importance of Connection

Connection-oriented behavior encourages other essential dynamics in the House such as self-directed accountability and individual recovery planning. Prospective Clients meet with current Clients and are interviewed during a House Meeting to determine “fit”. If a positive ”connection” is made, the prospect is admitted into the house.

Efforts are made to avoid disruption of these connections in Homes. Violent offenders or sex offenders are exclusionary and are not considered for residency. In homes where no positive connections are made, there is high probability of relapse or arrest.

The Safety of Home

The Stable Environment Model views housing and mental health services as separate needs and are not bundled together. Rather, they are provided in partnership with each other. Mental health and substance abuse services are based on an individual’s needs and desires. Clients have a central role in the planning process. It is vital to separate landlord and property management functions from the service delivery roles. Housing planning is closely linked to the supports that people need for recovery.

Track the Outcomes

Sustained recovery and improved quality of life are the expected outcomes following a stay with Access Foundation. The house culture promotes health and wellness among the residents by teaching principles of cleanliness, hygiene, personal responsibility, and healthy eating. It encourages them toward a more self-directed life as they make life-altering decisions, with some mild mentoring, on their own. And it promotes reaching full potential through assisted education, career mentoring, and technical training.
