Greenleaf Recovery Residence Review
Acadia’s Greenleaf Behavioral Health Hospital offers a sober living program for men. The recovery residence is a sober living community for adult men 18 and older who have dealt with addiction and need a supportive environment to live in during the early stages of recovery. This program is based on 12-step principles and requires that clients either attend a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), or that they have recently completed one. Clients receive individualized care during their program while seeking out employment, continuing their education, or volunteering.
Accommodations and Amenities
Clients live in a home-like facility that can house up to 10 men in shared bedrooms. There are common spaces throughout the residence including a living room with TV, dining room and kitchen.
Clients learn how to cook their own meals, and go grocery shopping during the week.
Rules and Regulations
A typical day in the recovery residence begins at 7 am with a client led meditation, followed by reading passages from the Big Book or other inspiration material. By 8:15 am those who are in a PHP or IOP are taken to the Greenleaf Hospital to begin their treatment day. The afternoon is for those who are not in the outpatient programs to attend either AA/NA meetings at off-site location. Three times a week for an hour in the late afternoon all clients attend relapse prevention group sessions at Greenleaf Hospital.
In addition, clients not in the PHP or IOP spend their time seeking out job opportunities or volunteer in the community. This may entail attending meetings at local employment agencies, or classes to help with building resumes and interviewing skills.
The evenings consist of all residents an hour long AA/NA meeting, also off-site, then wrap up the day with a peer led house meeting.
On average clients attend their PHP and IOP for a total of six to eight weeks, then live at the sober house for six to nine months.
In addition to a house manager who is on site 24 hours a day, there are LCSW, LPC or peer specialists on staff who run the therapeutic side of things.
Throughout their stay clients work on discharge planning and what sort of continued aftercare they have access to. Greenleaf provides ongoing group therapy once a week along with relapse prevention groups.
Greenleaf’s Recovery Residence offers men a safe place to reside while focusing on their sobriety in the real world. There are several support services provided by the facility that continue on after the program is completed, along with structured daily activities.
