Sober Living

The spiritual core of TLC is a tough-love philosophy that permeates every aspect of the program. Applicants undergo an intense peer-interview prior to acceptance. Questioning focuses on the applicant's motivation.

 

TLC HAS FOUR LEVELS:

 

ENTRY LEVEL:

 A two-week period during which clients may only leave the property to attend 12-step meetings or to seek employment. If clients leave for other reasons, they go with a senior client.

 

LEVEL ONE:

 A client is given level one by peers if he/she has a job, a sponsor and a 12-step home group. Level one clients may leave the property alone, though they have an 11:00 p.m. curfew on weekdays, a midnight curfew on weekends. 

 

LEVEL TWO: 

Level two is given to clients if they meet level one requirements for 30 days, owe no service fees, and support TLC activities. Level two clients have a midnight curfew weekdays, a 3:00 A.M. curfew weekends and periodic overnight and weekend passes. 

 

TRANSITIONAL LEVEL: 

Transition level is given by upper management after clients write a detailed paper outlining plans for re-entry into the community. This paper includes a meeting and work schedule, savings plan and other pertinent information. 

 

REQUIREMENTS: Clients must:    

  • Complete a 12 week Big Book study.  

  • Attend 90 12-step meetings in 90 days.  

  • Attend an 8-week relapse prevention class   

  • Submit to a drug screen, upon demand, at their expense.  

  • Attend 4 hours of in-house peer counseling each week. 

 

 

WHO GETS IN: 

 

TLC accepts any substance abuser who asks for help, with a few exceptions. The program doesn't accept sexual predators such as rapists or child molesters. Those with TB or active hepatitis, are not accepted. HIV positive applicants are accepted.
