Rules and Regulations
The Esperanza is a 12-step facility that offers on-site meetings twice weekly. Clients are held to a fairly high standard of accountability and are expected to attend a minimum of five meetings per week. They must also obtain a sponsor within two weeks of moving into the residence, a home group AA or NA meeting and either be enrolled in school or working. Before moving into one of the units, clients must have at least 30 days of continued sobriety. There is a minimum 90-day commitment period to participate in the program.
In addition to the 12-Step meetings on site at the facility, there are also Big Book study sessions, relapse prevention and life skill workshops with guest speakers. A morning meditation is lead every day by a staff member. Random UA’s and breathalyzers are performed weekly as a measure of compliance.
There are residential and assistant managers living at the facility to offer guidance and resources such as meeting locations. Clients with children are permitted for overnight visits on the weekend with prior approval from the management.
The Esperanza is a pet friendly community and clients may bring their small animals to live with them at the facility with an additional deposit fee.
The program at The Esperanza is designed to give residents a smooth transitional experience while acclimating themselves to every day life in recovery. With a strict five meeting per week policy and random drug testing, clients are held accountable. Through finding employment or going back to school, The Esperanza can also help them gain both confidence and build important sober life skills.
