At Firm Foundations Sober Living Homes, we believe that alcoholism and drug addiction are chronic, progressive diseases which demand a lifelong set of practices as a way of living, if we are to experience permanent recovery.
Recovery from alcohol and drugs is more than just abstinence. At Firm Foundations people live in a sober, safe and supportive environment while learning a daily program which makes life-long sobriety possible and enjoyable. Recovery includes spiritual, physical and emotional healing, taking responsibility for our actions, gaining life tools, building a recovery support structure and friends, financial management, positive social skills and healthy habits and fun. Recovery isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it.
A new way of life takes time so we offer a unique, extended-care approach and there is no better place to begin your journey of recovery. With an enthusiastic and recovery environment, Firm Foundations allows residents to join a fellowship of people in recovery.
With a vibrant job market, local universities and trade schools all within a short distance from the Firm Foundations homes, residents have multiple opportunities to advance in life while making recovery their #1 priority and establishing a firm foundation.
