Shoreline Sober Living Solutions has a three-strike policy regarding relapse. If a client relapses the first time, they must leave the house for a week, attend regular 12-step meetings, call the house manager on a daily basis, and pass all drug and alcohol screenings prior to re-entry. For a second relapse, clients must leave for another week, and obtain medical clearance from a doctor, as well as test negative on alcohol and drug tests. In the case of a third relapse, clients must attend residential treatment and provide documentation upon release. In all cases, rent must be paid and current. The curfew is midnight Sundays through Thursdays, and one am on Fridays and Saturdays.
