Founded in 2015 in St. Paul, Minnesota, by friends Tim Hegna and Jason Holm, Rejuvenate Homes provides safe and structured sober living for men in recovery from chemical dependency. Hegna and Holm are also in recovery. Besides operating a sober living community, Hegna is working towards his CADC certification. Rejuvenate Homes has two houses, and a third house is scheduled for an April 1, 2016 opening.
Accommodations and Amenities
The historic Dayton house was built in 1898, and includes a separate carriage house on the same property. Hegna has completely renovated the house, which still retains its 19th century charm. The main house accommodates seven clients, and the carriage house, which was built in 1925, also houses seven men. Clients are housed in single-occupancy rooms, which include a twin bed with brand new bedding, closet, dresser and an armchair. The St. Paul house, which was built in 1920, boasts a New American style with large windows and an asymmetrical front. The house accommodates seven clients housed in uniquely furnished, single-occupancy rooms.
Both houses include lavish contemporary furnishings. Each residence includes a sparkling, fully equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances. Clients are responsible for their own groceries and meal preparation. A dinner, which is prepared by a pair of residents, is also served after the weekly house meeting. Amenities include weekly housecleaning service, laundry facilities, extra refrigerators, Cable TV, Wi-Fi, central air and heating, utilities, ample street parking and private patios. Smoking is permitted in a designated area on the patios. House managers live on the premises.
Rules and Regulations
Potential clients must be 25 years and older and have a minimum of 30 days of sobriety. At Rejuvenate Homes, clients are strongly advised to attend at three weekly 12-step meetings and acquire sponsors. During the first 30 days, clients who have recently left residential treatment are allowed time to settle in, and focus on establishing a recovery protocol.
After that time, they are persuaded to attend school, perform community service or go to work. While these recommendations are not mandated, “couch potatoes” are not allowed. Residents must maintain productivity, as well as not isolate. At Rejuvenate Homes, the curfew is 11 pm seven days a week. Clients working late shifts or those planning to spend an overnight visit with a loved one must inform management beforehand. Residents must attend the weekly house meeting.
Random drug and alcohol testing is conducted. Residents who have relapsed are immediately evicted from the house to ensure the safety of other residents. The 30-day cost is $850, not including a $750 non-refundable sobriety security deposit. Additionally, at the beginning of the month residents each contribute $20, which is used towards the purchase of paper supplies, coffee, laundry detergent and softener.
Other services besides housing, include one-on-one spiritual mentoring.
Rejuvenate Homes is a member of MASH (Minnesota Association of Sober Homes).
Rejuvenate Homes was created from Hegna’s vision of being of service to his fellow alcoholics and addicts. The historical houses are located in beautiful neighborhoods. Residents are apt to feel at home here. While working on their steps, they get to rebuild their lives in serene and spacious surroundings.
