Accommodations and Amenities
Foundations in Recovery has two houses located in Spring Valley, which accommodate five to seven women, respectively, and a house in El Cajon that has an 11-bed capacity. The homes are in close proximity to public transportation, shopping, local universities and colleges, 12-step meetings and the Spring Valley swap meet.
The home boasts wood tiled floors, antique white walls, large windows that allow for ample sunlight and contemporary furnishings that are carefully positioned to provide a sense of spaciousness. Clients are typically paired in furnished, double-occupancy rooms, however, some single rooms are available upon request.
Women typically purchase their own groceries and prepare meals in the facility’s fully-equipped kitchen; however, food, toiletries and general hygiene items can be provided to women who need a help getting back on their feet. Amenities include WiFi, cable TV and on-site laundry. The El Cajon house also has a computer station. Smoking is permitted outside in designated areas only. House managers live on the premises.
Rules and Regulations
Prior to arrival, clients have typically completed primary care at a residential treatment program but must have completed detox if that was deemed necessary. Some clients have been referred by a parole or probation officer.
All residents are required to attend three 12-step meetings a week, obtain a sponsor and actively work steps. Clients must also be out of the house between 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday, looking for emplyment, working, attending school, participating in an outpatient program or volunteering in the local community. Residents must also attend weekly house meetings and do chores—including a weekend heavy duty Double Scrub cleaning event.
When clients leave the house, they are expected to sign out and then sign in upon their return. The curfew is 10 pm, Sunday through Thursday, and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. For those whose jobs extend past curfew are exempt from this rule, provided they have received clearance from their house manager.
Random drug and alcohol screenings are conducted and residents who are found to have relapsed must leave the premises immediately.
Other services include life skills coaching, mental health referrals and helping clients acclimate into a 12-step fellowship.
Since July 2016, Foundations in Recovery is the parent provider of Community Allies for Psychological Empowerment (CAPE), which provides individual and group therapy to members of the local community at a sliding scale fee.
