There are two basic types of recovery houses for men in Indianapolis. There are the three-quarter houses which are designed for men who require little supervision, and where the main requirements are that the men stay sober and that they promise to attend a certain number of recovery meetings. Then there are the Indianapolis halfway houses, with more structure and with a recovery program "built in" to it. Celebrate Freedom is more of this second group: We take an active role in our men's recovery, offering relapse prevention classes, Christian-based 12 Step meetings, and one-on-one recovery coaching sessions with the men.
Unlike other recovery houses for men in Indianapolis, though, we treat our men with respect. There is still this view among many Indianapolis recovery houses that strict confrontation works. It doesn't. Several studies over the past decade have shown that it doesn't. And so, recognizing the biological nature of addiction, we treat our men with dignity and respect--like they are at a place to heal, not at a boot camp.
