Recovery Corner Resident Format

Recovery Residences are divided into four levels of support based on the type, intensity and duration of support that are offered. Level 4 recovery residences have the most structure and are often associated with a substance abuse treatment center program stepping down to a Level 1 which is a residence self-governed by the residents wishing to live in a sober and drug free environment.

Recovery Corner is a Level 2 recovery residence. Level 2 residences are noted for their practical, and supportive approach. They provide an increased level of structure and oversight. Level 2 is a supervised level meaning that there are specific policies and procedures in place that outline a structure residents are to work within. Recovery Corner employs a staff that includes a Certified Recovery Residence Administrator, house managers and senior residents. This level is appropriate for the individual who needs a structured and supportive environment within a sober
living residence while transitioning back into full independent living.

Recovery Corner’s residence is based around the 12 steps. It is Recovery Corner’s policy that residents work one of the 12 step fellowships while living in the Recovery Corner residence. In addition, Recovery Corner offers a life skills-oriented course in-house to all new residents. The
Living Skills Course is provided to the residence free of charge. It is for the development of recovery sustaining activities, like developing a recovery support network, how to set long term and short term goals, employment strategies, self-help and self-care tools. The Living Skills
Course shows people new to the recovery life style a road map on how to live a purpose filled life.
