Normally you have two options: a rehab with on-site programming, but which costs a fortune...or the typical recovery residence, which has no in-house programming at all, but is affordable. Indy Sober Living combines the best of both. We have classes, meetings and recovery coaching that rival the in-patient addiction centers, but our guys can work, and our guys are only charged a small fee that rivals the rent at most modest homes in the area..
We are a Christian recovery house. Our 12-Step curriculum is Bible-centered, plus we encourage our men to use the recovery journal that they're given for daily Bible study. We are both Christian-centered and evidence-based.. Every man is given a recovery plan that instructs him to include a faith activity in his weekly routine: church or online church, etc..
Different Because We Are NOT "Zero Tolerance"
A lot of halfway houses boast that they are "zero tolerance." One dirty drug test and they brag that the client is evicted. Indy Sober Living is a transitional house that uses drug tests differently: We use them to help us know when and how we need to adjust your program, so we can get the client back on track. And then when a client is not willing to make our suggested changes, we ask him to leave.
Indy Sober Living allows new clients to detox on-site at no extra cost. Free detox is uncommon but needed. We are also unique in that we offer faith-based detox (Usual detox plus individual Bible studies for the client to supplement the process). Exception:Due to the medications needed for alcohol detox, we do not do alcohol detox here. Detox is supervised by person with credentials with the Indiana Division of Mental Health as a Certified Healthcare Worker (CHW). Call (317) 864-7833 for details.
