What is a Halfway House?

A halfway house is a structured drug and alcohol free living environment that accommodates individuals battling alcoholism, drug addiction, mental illness and similar disorders. Support staff onsite.

A halfway house imposes strict guidelines for its residents in order to lessen the chances of relapse. Residents are required to be actively participating in their recovery, by attending 12 Step Support groups, obtaining a sponsor and setting obtainable goals. Halfway Houses require adherence to curfews and house rules. Noncompliance to the house rules subjects a resident to removal from the halfway house.

What is a ¾ House?

A 3/4 is an inexpensive drug and alcohol- free environment where the recovering addict can obtain support from their peers. In general, a three quarter house is for residents that have 4-6 months of sobriety or clean time. It provides a positive environment for recovering addicts and alcoholics to receive the emotional support they need from residents going through the same experiences.

Experts agree that transitional living homes are very important tools to use in one’s lifelong recovery journey.
