Based out of Marietta, Georgia, The Arches Recovery Residences is a sober living facility with extended lengths of stay for men and women. All programs are 12-step based and include some supplemental therapy as well as group activities.
Accommodations and Amenities
Clients stay in nearby two-bedroom, two-bath sober apartments. While the number of available units can vary, the organization has a hotline to check bed availability. Each unit comes fully furnished with shared common areas, in-unit laundry, kitchenettes and common areas with TV and cable. Throughout their stay, residents are responsible for cooking and preparing their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
In order to stay at Arches Recovery Residences, clients must be 18 years or older and willing to work a 12-step recovery program. Though all residents are required to commit to a six-month length of stay, longer residencies are available as well. Generally speaking, the rules at the facility are similar to comparable sober livings: clients must attend one meeting a day, submit to random drug tests, secure a sponsor within the first two weeks, be employed within a month and maintain a basic level of cleanliness. All residents must also be out of bed by 9 am and back in their apartments by 10 pm. Aside from the basic house rules, clients also attend two accountability group meetings every week.
The facility also offers an accelerated program that is essentially the same program as the above on a faster scale and with increased family involvement. An additional bonus, one of the owners at Arches Recovery Residents also co-owns a nearby Muay Thai Kickboxing school where clients can attend periodically for free. However, is this is not considered an official part of the program.
Overall, The Arches Recovery Residences is a standard sober living facility that provides flexible lengths of stay and 12-step support. As an added bonus, residents can also take advantage of free classes at a nearby kickboxing facility. For those in the area willing to commit to a longer-term stay, Arches Recovery Residences may be worth considering.
