Frequently Asked Questions about The Doorway to Recovery’s Sober Living Homes:
This page is dedicated to answering questions about sober living homes at The Doorway to Recovery. While this may not answer all your questions, these are the more commonly asked ones. Feel free to contact our Main Office by calling 248-987-2696 if you have other questions that are not answered on this page. Our staff will gladly take your call.
Am I allowed to take medications while enrolled in The Doorway to Recovery?
Medications are allowed to be taken by participants in The Doorway to Recovery Program and Services. See our Program Rules and Housing Rules for more information. Please note, due to the nature of our sober living homes, not all medications will be permitted in our sober living homes. In addition, participants are required to bring a lock box to keep all prescription medications in.
What do I need to bring into the sober living homes?
Our homes are fully furnished. When coming into the homes, you will need to bring your own food, personal hygiene products, laundry soap, a lock box for medications, prescriptions, and towels/linens (if able). Doorway to Recovery provides household goods such as cleaning supplies, toilet paper, and paper towel, silverware, dishes, etc. For more information, visit our What to Bring page.
I have a loved one who is currently using drugs or alcohol… Can you help them?
Absolutely! While they may not be able to immediately go into sober living (if in need of a detox program) Doorway to Recovery can recommend treatment providers, provide interventions (if the loved one is unwilling to go into treatment), or simply answer questions. Sober Living is a great way to achieve long-term recovery, and we are able to help provide a plan for anyone who is trying to achieve it, no matter what walk of life they are from! Visit the Interventions page for more information about this process.
When is payment due for enrollment in The Doorway to Recovery?
Unless special circumstances are worked out, payments for The Doorway to Recovery’s enrollment are usually expected to be made at time of intake. A deposit may need to be left in advance to hold a bed.
Is smoking allowed while enrolled in your sober living homes?
We do allow smoking in designated areas outside of our sober living homes, in the back yards. Due to the fact that some people don’t smoke, we ask that all tobacco related products be stored away while in the sober living home. There is no chewing tobacco, vaping, or rolling of cigarettes allowed inside the sober living homes.
Do you offer IOP / Outpatient Programs?
While at The Doorway to Recovery we do not offer outpatient treatment, we do work with a therapist that meets people one on one and facilitates group therapy at her office and sometimes at our office too. For more information, check out Dr. Barlow’s services.
