House Rules

These are our rules established by our members. Everyone at the center is responsible for reporting and/or holding all of us accountable for safe, appropriate, recovery orientated behavior while visiting the center. If you violate general house policies – you may receive a warning or be asked to leave immediately with a possible suspension that fits your behavior. We understand that many that come here may have behavioral issues that are difficult to control and we will take that into consideration when deciding on a consequence, but an explanation of behavior is not an excuse.
