Smithville TennessseeThe Basics

Located about an hour east of Nashville in Smithville, Tennessee, Sober Living Services and Omega House provide gender-specific sober living, along with comprehensive transitional care for men and women. Its mission is to nurture sobriety, and allow clients ample opportunities to rebuild their lives, while it focuses on a 12-step, faith-based program. Sober Living Services and Omega House accept criminal justice clients referred by the State of Tennessee’s Re-entry program.

Accommodations and Amenities

Sober Living Services accommodates men in a unique brick building and Omega House is a small white bungalow nicknamed the “White House,” which lodges the women. There is a combined 50-bed capacity. Accommodations vary per residence, but typically clients are housed in double, triple or quadruple-occupancy furnished rooms.

Residents are responsible for their own groceries, and meals are prepared in fully equipped kitchens. Staff assists qualified clients with food stamp and public assistance applications. Smoking is permitted outside in designated areas only. Staff lives on the premises and oversees operations.

Rules and Regulations

Prior to admittance, potential clients must have completed detox and filled out an application, followed by an interview. Upon acceptance, they must pass an alcohol and drug screening. There is a 90-day minimum length of stay, but often clients stay up to a year. Weekly requirements include attending an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at a local facility like Haven of Hope Christian Counseling or Buffalo Valley, attending 12-step meetings, Bible study or church. During the first nine months, clients accompany staff to church. After that time, they can attend a church of their own choice.

Clients also participate in on-site groups including meditation, Big Book study, life skills training, parenting, healthy boundaries and anger management. Other weekly requirements include being at house meetings, performing household chores and working at least a minimum of 30 hours. Staff assists clients on SSI with finding volunteer work. All residents must sign in and sign out upon entering or leaving the facility.

Random drug and alcohol screenings are conducted. A zero tolerance policy is enforced, and clients who relapse are immediately evicted from the premises. The curfew is 10 pm seven days a week. Lights out is 11 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, unless clients are working second or third shifts. Criminal justice clients receive reports, which are provided to their parole or probation officers.

Extras

Other services besides housing include case management, job assistance, inpatient treatment referrals (if necessary) and life skills training. The admission cost is $595, and the 30-day cost after that is $540.

Limited transportation is provided, at an additional weekly $25 cost.

In Summary

Sober Living Services and Omega House offers a comprehensive 12-step and faith-based recovery program, along with supplementary services, for clients seeking a second chance in life.

    These people only want money, not to help anyone. They don’t even provide a decent place to live. They pack 12 men into a small three bedroom house and collect $155/week from each, which is more than $8,000 per month in rent! For that we get a leaky hot water heater, holes in the bathroom floor and AC that goes out every few days!

    If you can find another place to go, do yourself a favor and go there!

    One of the girls presently in your facility is already on facebook reconnecting with her old “druggie buddies” so apparently you’re not making any progress with J.L.A.

    This place have been my saving grace with out this place and this community I would either still be in jail or be dead. I am very thankful to each and every person here. Tom and Jacki have provided us with a safe environment to live in and learn how to be ourselves. I suggest anyone needing to get into recovery come here. This town may be small but it has plenty of good jobs and even more good supportive people. I’m very thankful I came here. Mr John and all the great folks at the Haven of Hope have been great accepted me as family. And helped me more than I could ever imagine. Lydia has been very supportive and helpful knowing the struggle and providing love and support to us each and everyday. Ms Cynthia she is a gift from God def a blessing to the program always here for us day or night…. Ms Jessica the program director she will help you any way possible. I have met so many good people here I now consider my family. My team was actually up here on August 3rd but o decided not to go I’m safe here. I’m learning life skills, responsibility, integrity, learning what I am sober and outside the jail walls. These people have saved me from the path of destruction I have always chosen and I’m forever grateful. Need help give them a call.
