Our Philosophy

The Gilmore House sober living residence is designed as a transitional living program for adult males in early recovery who may have unstable living environments that may make "going home" inadvisable. Although a transitional living residence is not a treatment program, residents have a continuing care plan that may include aftercare, relapse prevention, or a step-down level of care such as intensive outpatient following inpatient care that they are expected to actively engage in.

Each resident signs an authorization with his/her treatment provider that permits our Project Coordinator to communicate with them regarding their progress, needs, etc. Additionally, each resident is expected to attend regular twelve step meetings and to have a sponsor in their 12-step program.

The individual plan includes:

  • Twelve step meetings
  • Twelve step sponsor
  • Attendance at weekly House Meetings
  • Employment

We strive to develop an environment of encouragement from within the house that will help you develop the tools needed to achieve long term sobriety.
