Sober House Description:
The Twelve Step House was established in 1958 as a residence for men and a meeting place for recovering alcoholics and interested friends.
The Twelve Step Houseis a not-for-profit organization basing recovery on the AA principles. The House is not affiliated with AA, has not received government aid and exists solely through our own contributions. We need help to be of help.
The Twelve Step House was conceived as a means of helping these sober alcoholics practice the A.A program. In this program, each person is charged with the responsibility of “carrying the message” that is, helping someone else who has a drinking problem.
Daily communication and counseling his A.A. sponsor still remains the chief support the new man will receive while in the House. However, should additional counseling and explanations be necessary, the House Custodian and Board Members assigned as House Sponsors will make every effort to aid the new man, without conflicting in any way with the efforts of the A.A. sponsor.
Living in a sheltered atmosphere, surrounded by other men like himself who are trying to rehabilitate themselves, has proven to be a prime factor in the new man’s early struggle for sobriety.
