This program is designed for men and women 18 years of age or older in early recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction who would benefit from additional structured living. The program believes that the chance of relapse is greatest within the first 30 to 60 days of sobriety and a structured program within a comfortable sober living environment is the first step toward relapse prevention. Average length of stay in one of the program's transitional homes is two to three months, after which the program works with clients to obtain longer-term housing in the community, structured or otherwise.

Through AA/NA meetings held throughout the area and the Northwest Sobriety community, residents are exposed to peers who are serious about their recovery. This exposure leads to a strong network of others in recovery promoting positive support, growth and friendships that can last a lifetime.
When residents are ready to move on, the program collaborates with Northwest Sobriety to facilitate the transition into a community of clean, safe recovery housing for independent living here in the area.
