Founded in 2006 in Chaska, Minnesota, CD Recovery Services provides a network of gender-specific sober living homes for men and women in recovery. In 2009, they merged with Five Stars Recovery Center, which also offers sober living homes, as well as outpatient drug rehab.
Accommodations and Amenities
CD Recovery Services accommodates approximately 66 clients in 11 houses located in Chaska, Shakopee, Maple Grove and Carver. There are four female-only and seven male-only homes. Accommodations vary, but typically clients are paired in comfortably furnished rooms. The CH Klein Mansion for Women in Chaska was once known as the Peacock Inn Bed and Breakfast. The quaint house includes a wrap around porch, stained glass windows, old-style street lamps and an English garden. The Jefferson House for men is in close proximity to a water park, golf courses and hiking trails.
Clients receiving General Relief are supplied with food. Those not receiving state funding are responsible for their own groceries and meal preparation. Fully equipped kitchens are provided in each house. Amenities include Cable TV, all utilities, local telephone service, laundry facility and Wi-Fi. Smoking is permitted in a designated outdoor areas only. Clients are allowed a daily maximum of ten minutes each on the landline. Each house has a live-in residential manager who oversees operations.
Rules and Regulations
Prior to admission, clients must have had a minimum of 30 days of sobriety. A 90-day minimum length of stay is required. Upon arrival, residents undergo a 30-day probationary period, which includes a daily 9 pm curfew and the requirement to get a 12-step sponsor within 14 days. After 30 days, the standard curfew is 11:30 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. All clients must be out of bed by 9 am, and have their sleeping areas clean and beds made. Random room checks are conducted.
Requirements include acquiring full time work, going to school or performing community service. Clients who need outpatient treatment attend Five Stars Recovery Center. Clients who left residential treatment, prior to arrival, or those who are criminal justice clients must follow discharge instructions, including adherence to an aftercare protocol.
Other conditions for residency include attendance at three 12-step meetings per week (along with verification slips signed by meeting’s secretary), participation at the house meeting and performance of household chores. At CD Recovery Services, clients undergo random drug and alcohol screenings. Those who have relapsed are immediately evicted from the premises.
Chaska has a diverse selection of 12-step meetings. In 2007, Chaska made the Top Ten List in CNN Money’s annual Best Places to Live.
CD Recovery Services offers a highly structured approach to affordable sober living. Clients focus on building a solid foundation in recovery, as well as establish basic life skills. An added bonus is that food is provided for General Relief clients, and outpatient treatment is readily available for residents needing transitional care.
