Rosecrance is a behavioral health organization that operates more than 40 rehabs in Chicago and northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. Rosecrance began in 1916 as an orphanage for boys and has grown over the years to operate a huge network of substance abuse treatment facilities. Rosecrance offers detox, residential, outpatient and recovery home programs for both adults and adolescents facing addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. The four Rosecrance Recovery Homes offer specialized age and gender-specific sober living for adults and adolescents in Rockford, Illinois. The houses provide places for alcoholics and addicts to build a strong foundation in recovery before returning to independent living.
Accommodations and Amenities
Rosecrance Recovery Homes has four houses, and accommodates a total of about 50 teens, men, women and their children. The houses range from a beautifully restored turn-of-the-century home to a 10-unit apartment building. They all feature clean, updated interiors include comfortable living spaces and beautiful yards. Clients typically share double-occupancy furnished rooms, but some singles are available based on seniority. Residents who bring their children with them typically have a private bedroom, or in some cases an apartment, to share with their kids.
Residents are responsible for their own groceries and meals are prepared in fully equipped kitchens. Amenities include cable TV and laundry rooms. Each residence has an on-site house manager.
Rules and Regulations
Typically, clients have undergone primary care at one of the Rosecrance rehabs but occasionally newly clean and sober individuals are admitted, provided that they have undergone detox, are mentally stable and highly motivated to stay clean and sober. At Rosecrance Recovery Homes, clients must agree to participate in one of the Rosecrance aftercare or outpatient programs. Aftercare costs are typically covered by insurance while housing is billed separately. The programs include individual and group therapy and dual diagnosis support. The groups focus on relapse prevention, gender and age-specific issues and life skills.
Each house has slightly different rules and routines based on the clientele. The Hillman House serves male clients 15 to 18 years old and Marlowe House treats female clients in the same age range. Both these adolescent programs require daily therapy, 12-step participation and reintegration into a school environment. Greendale Recovery Home, located in a small apartment complex, is a co-ed recovery program for adults and mothers with their children. Greendale is located directly across the street from the Rosecrance Harrison campus, where clients are required to attend an outpatient program and parenting classes (if applicable). Woodstock Recovery Home, which consists of two duplexes next door to each other, is a program for adult men and women. Residents must attend on-site therapy groups three times a week, work, go to school, attend meetings and focus on developing essential skills necessary to maintain lasting recovery. Random drug testing is conducted at all locations, and residents who have relapsed are evicted from the premises and provided with a referral to an inpatient or detox program.
Other services besides housing include life planning, money budgeting and resume building. Childcare is available during treatment for clients who are living with their small children.
Rosecrance Recovery Homes offer a wonderful opportunity for clients in the Rockford area who want to engage in an aftercare program, work on a 12-step recovery protocol and live in a structured sober living environment. Although the specifics of each house are slightly different, clients in every home gain independence and practice life skills while building a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
