Supportive Sober Living for Men – Our Recovery Program

Crafting A Unique Approach to Recovery

Young men facing reality after treatment for substance abuse or a mental health disorder face an incredible challenge. Navigating triggers that we encounter in daily life can be painful, exhausting, and isolating, which is why we offer a program that makes this transition easier.

Many of our clients have battled addiction since they were children. While some have attempted to recover before, they eventually have fallen back into the same harmful patterns of behavior.

Mental health disorders usually coexist alongside addiction, which can make the recovery process even more challenging. Unlike other sober living programs, The Recovery Academy considers each client as a unique part of our program. We understand that every individual comes from different circumstances, and carries different needs and goals that require specialized support.

Much More Than A Sober Living Home for Men

The Recovery Academy creates a safe and supportive environment inside our sober living houses for men. Our program is all-inclusive. Fully furnished rooms, meals, activities, and other accommodations are provided within this recovery community.

When a client enters one of our recovery homes, they will receive a recovery plan that is reviewed weekly to ensure they’re meeting their needs and goals. Ultimately, the men in our St. Paul sober living program will make their way toward a productive life with valuable skills in long-term recovery.

How Our St. Paul Sober Living Program Works

Phase 1: Constructing Each Client’s Foundation

Our program begins with Phase 1, providing lots of help to clients who are coming out of treatment or recovering from a relapse. This part of the program helps create a strong foundation for living without substances. It also helps people fit back into the community after being in treatment or dealing with challenges like not being able to take on adult responsibilities.

Some clients are in early recovery, and they may not have learned some basic life skills because they started using substances at a young age. For them, even simple tasks like going grocery shopping can feel really hard. During Phase 1, our staff supports and guides them through these activities, so they have positive experiences and get ready to live on their own. This phase usually lasts 3-4 months before they move on to Phase 2

Phase 2: Reinforcement As They Grow

During Phase 2 of The Recovery Academy, residents become more independent while still having the amenities and support from Phase 1. We offer career counseling and help with planning for higher education, so clients can make a plan and achieve their goals successfully. This phase usually lasts about 3-4 months before they move on to Phase 3.

Phase 3: Stepping Toward Reality

During Phase 3 of The Recovery Academy, clients move to a new residence with more independence while still having support from Phases 1 and 2. To be in this phase, they need to have at least six months of staying sober and either have a job or be attending school. They must achieve milestones using the life skills and recovery tools they learned.

This phase offers less structure, but there is still staff available on-site for counseling and recovery coaching whenever needed. Clients typically spend 3-6 months here before transitioning to independent living. By the end of this phase, they have gained knowledge, skills, resources, relationships, and community connections that help them have a meaningful life in recovery.

“I needed a lot of extra support when I first came in. The staff at The Recovery Academy helped me deal with some legal issues, which were really stressing me out. I got through it with the help of my counselor and the other guys in the program.” Josh, age 26
