Welcome to your new home. We are here to support you in your 12-step recovery. We have been
where you are now and we know it can be very scary. If this is your first time in recovery, you
probably have no idea what you’re supposed to do next. Its okay - you are not alone and we will
gently guide you and support you. If you’ve been in recovery before, you may know what you should
do, but may be afraid you won’t make it this time either. Relax! Just for today, all you have to do is
unpack your bags – if you want we can help. Ask for anything you may need and we will do our best
to make you comfortable. It is normal to feel uncomfortable in new situations – lean on us – that’s why
we are here.

We run this home like an extended family in many ways – the welfare of the family members – is of
utmost importance. We all work together to create a safe, loving environment which supports all the
family members recovery. It is not okay for one person to jeopardize the welfare of the others. All
healthy families have common codes of courtesy and respect. Truth is – not all of us came from
healthy families, so we didn’t learn a lot of the skills necessary to get along as a family. We have
developed family guidelines that everyone follows and we also hold each other accountable. If you
ignore a guideline you jeopardize the harmony of the home, this will eventually affect your recovery
and affect others. If you are aware of another family member acting out it is imperative you bring it to
the staff’s attention or to a “Family Meeting”. If you do not, you could be putting the house and that
person in danger. In recovery we are each others “eyes and ears”. Not wanting to be a “narc” or
accused of “ratting out someone” is old using behavior – we don’t live in the streets or a dope house
– we live in a recovery home – secrets, lies, and “dishonesty by omission” lead us back to using.  
Using leads us back to jails or institutions and possible death. You will see we take our recovery
programs very seriously and as a result we find joy, peace and happiness. If you are serious about
your recovery then you too will find that it frees you to have lots of time and energy for fun, play, and
laughter. “We are not a glum lot” (The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous) WE LOVE TO HAVE FUN
