The Anthony House is a sober living home for men founded in July 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The house is located in Maplewood—a quiet residential neighborhood—and serves individuals of all ages and backgrounds.
Accommodations and Amenities
The 3,360-square-foot contemporary rambler has eight bedrooms and four bathrooms. Residents begin their stay in one of four dual-occupancy bedrooms and, once they have settled in, they can transition into one of the three single bedrooms. Both the single and double rooms have twin beds, a dresser and a small closet. Linens and bedding are provided for residents.
The owner and manager lives on-site in a single bedroom.
The Anthony House has a large kitchen with four refrigerators, allowing ample space for each resident’s food. Although clients are responsible for their own food, the house also collects $25 a month from each resident to create a small fund for staples like milk, bread and cleaning supplies.
The house has cable TV and Wi-Fi and residents are allowed to use cell phones and electronics. The house has a deck that overlooks a lake and is furnished with chairs and a grill for use in the summer months. An on-site laundry facility is available.
Rules and Regulations
The Anthony House accepts residents who have either just completed a residential program or who have been sober for 30 days. The house requires a minimum six-month stay.
Residents are required to attend a minimum of two off-site AA/NA meetings a week and must be regularly working with a sponsor while living in the house. The facility is in close proximity to many 12-step meetings. Each resident must also complete 30 hours a week of work, school or volunteer work.
There is a mandatory house meeting every Sunday to discuss roommate issues and each resident’s recovery progress. The meeting ends with a reading from the Big Book and a group discussion about the reading.
Each resident is assigned a daily chore to help with the upkeep of the house. The facility allows residents to come and go as they please, but a nightly curfew of midnight is enforced. Residents are not allowed overnight guests and must have prior approval 24 hours before they stay overnight elsewhere. All clients are regularly tested for drugs and alcohol.
The Anthony House is an affordable option for men in the St. Paul area looking for sober living. The focus on AA/NA and required employment, schooling or volunteer work provide structure and help to build a normal life as residents continue their recovery.
