Sober Crossings is a “working” house. Residents are expected to already be employed (full or part time) and maintain employment while residing in one of our houses. Learning to balance work with personal care and social obligations is excellent preparation for transitioning back into daily life without drugs and alcohol.
Our residential recovery community uses a 12-step focus to structure and encourage peer support, personal growth and development. Each resident is required to attend at least three NA, AA, or CA meetings outside the house. The Lynn area has a vast network of meetings and we can help find the right meetings for you.
Meal Preparation & Laundry:
Residents are responsible for purchasing groceries, preparing their meals and doing their laundry in the house. Practicing these life skills strengthens self-sufficiency, which is essential to the recovery process.
Residents are required to keep their rooms clean and orderly at all times as well as perform their assigned weekly chore. Part of the recovery process includes maintaining structure; at each house each resident will be responsible for a daily chore.
Curfew is for residents to help them maintain focus on staying clean and sober and limit exposure to situations and events that may come with the temptation to relapse. The requirement to be at home by a certain time also helps residents to create a schedule that allows them to focus on progressing in their recovery.
