provides a “family” living environment in a beautiful facility in the Fruitridge East area of Sacramento. Personal responsibility, respect for others, communication, conflict resolution, and similar skills are learned and lived. Residents must commit to curfews, random drug tests, and to supporting one another. We accept applications without regard to ethnicity, age, race, or sexual orientation. We are not able to accept PC 290 registrants, anyone unable to easily navigate stairs.
We are certified by CAARR (California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources) and have a certified substance abuse counselor on staff. We are not a licensed treatment facility, and we do not provide detox, medical or psychological services.
Restoration House addresses the whole person. Components of our support structure include:
Spiritual. Bible study, prayer and life-sharing time are the core of our program. Each resident is expected to worship and become involved in a church of his choice.
Educational. Residents are encouraged to participate in ongoing education: school, GED preparation, or vocational training. Tutoring is provided.
Life-Skills Training. We offer opportunities to learn money management and budgeting; shopping and cooking; social and relational skills; health and nutrition; finding and using community resources for employment and other needs.
Rehabilitation. Each resident sets person goals and has a personalized program. Progress and accountability are provided by individual meetings with staff, and in resident group meetings. Residents are encouraged to participate in AA, NA, or other self-help groups.
Employment. Residents are required to seek and hold full time employment. If disabled, applicants must currently have Social Security Disability benefits. If in an educational or vocational program, applicants must have a sponsor or scholarship sufficient to pay fees.
BUT WHAT IS OUR SUCCESS RATE?
Since the program’s inception (12 years in 2014), more than 100 men have been served by RH. A few stayed less than a month; a few 1 ½ years. The average stay is 6-9 months. In general, we consider three months the minimum time to adequately complete the program.
Our general program goals are tailored to each resident’s unique situation, need, and personal goals. “Program completion” is not measured in time, but in accomplishment and readiness to move to independent living
It is easy to count as “successes” the men who leave with most of the pieces of their lives in sync: spiritually and personally integrated, maintaining sobriety, employment, reunited with family, successfully completing parole, fulfilling their goals, facing their futures with hope.
