The Endeavor House is a women’s sober living home in Conway, NH. Residents are expected to be responsible for themselves. This is an important step in recovery because addiction causes people to act in irresponsible ways, and friends and families often enable them by supporting them. Residents have to pay their own rent, buy their own food, and do the same things they would do for themselves if they lived in a regular home. Sober living houses, also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug rehabilitation programs. Sober houses serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society.
A gender specific sober housing has significant benefits. First, and foremost, it removes the inhibitions that tend to accompany mixed group settings. A women’s only sober living program allows clients to interact without imposing the tacit restrictions that different cultural, sexual, and political biases that accompany female/relationships – both personal and impersonal. The freedom that a women’s only program creates, allows a more complete exploration of the issues and problems that fuel drug and alcohol addiction, and opens the door to a shared understanding of how these problems affect women. This type of environment has a high rate of success in both recovery and relapse deterrence rates.
The Endeavor house consists of different elements that help women grow and heal. It provides a safe environment that ingrains the structure they are able to carry with them for the rest of their lives, including:
-A structured environment
-Monthly house meetings
