First Stage

Usually involves the time of detox or a few days after starting detox, where you will live in the recovery home for up to 90 days. This stage is very structured and involves a routine that residents must follow. During this time, you will work on your recovery in a multitude of ways; working to strengthen your mind, body and spirituality at the same time. The program facilitators, facilitate a variety of lesson plans, workshops, and exercises to teach you an evidence-based recovery method. Counsellors work with you one on one to address underlying trauma, or mental health concerns that may be impacting your recovery. Yoga and meditation specialists assist you on your spiritual healing journeys. You will engage in a variety of indoor and outdoor physical activities to help strengthen your body. The work you put into this stage can set you up for a successful life-long recovery. For individuals not quite ready to return to their home environments, second stage housing options are available.

Second Stage

This stage allows for a little more freedom than the first stage. Each second stage will have their own rules. However, sober-living is a requirement and some homes may still require random urine drug screening, attendance to a certain number of AA/NA meetings, a strict curfew, chores, and counselling sessions. After second stage some individuals may still not be ready to return home, and can move on to third stage of recovery housing.

Third Stage

This stage is much similar to second stage in terms of more freedom, and is also know as long-term independent sober-living. Here you will continue to live in sobriety with peers. During this stage you may return to work. However, like the second stage, third stage may require a curfew, chores, attendance of meetings and other rules set in place. Following into the third stage has been known to reduce the number of relapses greatly.
