• An individualized plan will be developed to focus on the needs and wishes of the resident.

    • First and foremost in this plan will be a plan for sobriety. Early in the resident’s stay the plan will focus on learning the basics of the 12-Step Program. After approximately 5-6 weeks of the resident’s participation in the House, AA/NA meetings, meeting with a sponsor, etc., the plan will begin to focus on exit strategies.

    • The Executive Director and the resident will review plans for living arrangements, employment, return to families, housing arrangements, and other issues that will confront the resident immediately after discharge.

    • A list of triggers and dangerous situations, and persons, places, and things to be avoided will be formulated and reviewed with the Executive Director and resident's sponsor.

  • A plan will be written which addresses steps the resident will immediately take in the event of a relapse to include notification of sponsor, spouse or significant other, and return to Carter House for discussions.

  • Residents will regularly attend house meetings, discuss plans for continued care and get feedback from the staff and fellow residents.
