Rules and Regulations
At Dana Point Recovery, all residents are expected to attend five meetings a week and submit to random urinalysis testing, approximately three times a week. As with most sober livings, all clients must work, volunteer, attend school or go to therapy during the day to remain active. The house also hosts weekly Big Book meetings on Tuesday that alumni are also welcome to attend. On Sunday, the entire house goes as a group to a speaker-oriented 12-step meeting off-site.
Days are strictly scheduled, with clients waking up at 8 am and going to bed by 10 pm on the weekdays and midnight on the weekends (though exceptions can be made sometimes depending on clients’ work schedules). All residents are also expected to complete basic house chores. Though visitors are allowed, visitation times are strictly supervised and limited to the main floor of the house, particularly for significant others. The home also has house managers who live on-site to keep track of residents’ activities and to offer support as necessary.
Dana Point Recovery also accepts clients on scholarship from local hospitals. Transportation services are often provided to local meetings and on-site parking is available for residents who bring their cars to the program.
Overall, Dana Point Recovery provides a safe and secure environment for men in early recovery. All clients must follow strict daily schedules and remain active in recovery while submitting to regular and random drug testing. The program is highly 12-step based and emphasizes peer-based recovery. For those in the area, Dana Point Recovery is a structured resource in an ideal location that could be a great fit for the right candidate.
