Working Your Recovery

It is said that Recovery is not so much about staying clean and sober but about a lifestyle change. While this is true, the new lifestyle has to be built on something solid. We believe with the working with a 12 Step Fellowship and doing Step Work, You will begin to start your spiritual journey towards your higher power; will begin to bear the fruit of clear thinking; in an ability to share, to ask for help, to be intimate, and to trust.


These transformative experiences take time to solidify and become foundational.  
In addition to an emotional, cognitive, and social foundation, a predictable and sustainable routine is essential. There is something about simple, day after day, week after week consistency that teaches us some essentials of a healthy lifestyle.


We have learned through our own Recovery that constructive regularity is one element of a stable foundation. One of the greatest challenges will be, learning to just stay put and not cut and run.

leaving Noah's house Inc.

Some of the individuals who walk through the front door as a Recovery Program Participant will leave in some state of distress - drunk, high, or angry. Our job as a group is to make transitions into and out of the program as smooth as possible.


Not everyone is ready to do the heavy lifting required to Recover, let alone do it within the confines of a group of people living within our program. 

The statistics tell us that about a third of the people who leave simply don't show up one day. They just disappear. Other third leaves because they relapse and are not ready or willing to go through the contract process to stay.


A small percentage leave because they never settle in for a variety of reasons. Another percentage are removed because they develop serious problematic and disruptive behaviors. 
If a person is asked to leave, they will have three days to retrieve their personal belongings. We are not responsible for the safekeeping of these belongings and will be forced to dispose of them if not claimed within 72 hours.
