Design For Recovery offers daily scheduling that stands out among other sober living homes. Men who have attempted recovery before with little success may find lasting sobriety at Design for Recovery.

Residents take steps to rebuild their lives from the ground up. The result is that when residents of Design for Recovery graduate and re-enter the world at large, they are already well on their way to achieving their education or career goals. They also have a strong program for long-term sobriety that they can confidently take into the future.
One of the most joyful aspects of Design for Recovery is the brotherhood that exists among residents and alumni.

For many, having the opportunity to connect and build relationships with other men who understand the complex and harrowing nature of addiction can be life-changing.

One-on-one mentoring is a crucial aspect of addiction recovery. Through sponsorship in 12- step programs and within the recovery home as well, residents have access to the experience, strength, and hope of individuals who are further along on their sober paths.
At Design for Recovery, residents have multiple sleeping arrangements available to them. Depending on their circumstances and needs, residents sleep in single occupancy rooms or in rooms with two to three fellow house peers.
Design for Recovery coordinates with psychiatrists and medical professionals to make sure that residents are getting the care they need. Many men turn to substances initially as a way of self-medicating undiagnosed mental health problems. For these individuals, it is absolutely essential that they receive the proper pharmacological needs that their conditions warrant as directed by their physicians. Many of Design for Recovery’s residents also benefit from medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which helps mitigate withdrawal symptoms and alleviate cravings.
Because addiction and its associated lifestyle leads to poor decision-making, many people arrive in sobriety with considerable debt on their hands. Design for Recovery’s staff works with each individual to determine their financial situation and plan accordingly. Through a combination of budgeting, debt relief programs, and employment support, men at Design for Recovery can begin to take steps toward financial freedom.
Unemployment, precarious employment, and losing a job are all common among people with substance abuse problems. For many newly sober men, getting a job or finding a career can be daunting prospects. Design for Recovery works with residents to get them placed in jobs while they live there. Working while pursuing addiction recovery not only fosters accountability, integrity, and self-sufficiency, it prepares men for lives outside of a recovery home.
Design for Recovery holds regular group meals during which residents come together as a community. The house also holds regular meals for both residents and family members. These are great opportunities for families to see how far their children have progressed.
Residents at Design for Recovery have regular transportation needs, ranging from 12-step meetings to outpatient therapy appointments. Design for Recovery not only coordinates transportation in advance for all residents, but staff or residents with more sober time provide support and supervision on all outings.
At a sober living home, it is essential that residents remain confident that their fellow housemates are sober. Living at Design for Recovery means existing in a safe and trigger free space where everyone is 100% committed to addiction recovery. As such, Design for Recovery regularly conducts drug tests on our residents, helping them stay accountable to themselves and their peers.
