Rules and Regulations
In general, Firebird Transformations has many of the same rules as competing facilities: all residents must remain sober, submit to regular and random drug tests and attend work or school.
Each day begins with a morning meditation and chores while evenings end with staff check-ins. In addition to work or school, residents are required to attend regular on-site 12-step meetings as well as rotating recreational activity groups. The on-site staff also includes CSACs and life coaches who provide guidance to residents throughout their stay.
The program includes innovative recreational and vocational mindfulness sessions. Other groups may focus on relapse prevention topics or on other work-oriented skills including micro-entrepreneurship training. The organization also provides a sophisticated aftercare program which includes family therapy, sobriety coaching and visits back to the house for a weekly fee for up to three months.
In all, Firebird Transformations is a robust sober living home with a wide range of ancillary services for its clients. The program relies primarily on 12-step recovery principles as well as vocational and life skills. For men in the area seeking a longer-term program, Firebird Transformations is well worth considering.
