No one is too discredited or has sunk too low to be welcomed cordially - if he means business.

Services & Programs

We follow the recovery method that has the most successful track record of any recovery program. One really can recover from "addiction" no matter how hopeless they seem.  For example, the very first 12 step group had a 93% success rate. Moreover, in early 12 step groups there was a specific plan of action that worked amazingly well. That plan of action appears to have been, for the most part, lost or forgotten over the years since. Therefore, we are a back to basics Spiritually based 12 step program. We are fellow recovered addicts and alcoholics who have a solution upon which we all absolutely agree. We neither charge for our one-on-one 12 step work, our workshops nor our meetings. Anyone can attend our meetings, workshops or get one-on-one help at no cost. You do not have to live in our facilities to join us on the road of happy destiny. 

 

Further, many of the so-called modern methods have very poor success rates. So we keep it simple and follow the program that appears to work for every single person who completely gives themselves to this simple program. The only people we see who do not succeed are people who can't be honest with themselves.

Support Group

The Solution

Addicts and alcoholics see that the program at our recovery center really works in others. Most know how hopeless their own attempts to stop have been. They see happy recovered addicts that recovered with us where other methods fail. The newcomer is  surrounded by those in whom the problem has been solved. So, they embrace our solution and join us in a successful and happy recovery. That being said, we do favor hospitalization or medical treatment for the alcoholic or addict who's still suffering from physical withdrawals or other physical complications.

Continuing Support

But life among Alcoholics Anonymous is more than attending gatherings and visiting hospitals. Cleaning up old scrapes, helping to settle family differences, explaining the disinherited son to his irate parents, lending money and securing jobs for each other, when justified - these are everyday occurrences. No one is too discredited or has sunk too low to be welcomed cordially - if he means business.  BB. 161

Family Support

Because there is a period of reconstruction ahead for any life which was affected by substance abuse, families are welcomed to visit, to get informed and be supported by our community. There are many others who have been in their position that know the path to healing. [We] urge upon a man’s family to understand that he has been a very sick person and should be treated accordingly. We warn against arousing resentment or jealousy. [We share with families] that the [addict's] defects of character are not going to disappear overnight. [We ask families] to remember, when they are impatient, the blessed fact of his sobriety. BB. 100

Recovery Skills Programs

We find that the skills which allow long term recover can be learned by almost anyone. The key to long term recovery is finding an internal satisfaction with life on life's terms. And having the tools to survive the the trials and low spots that come along 

90 Day Program

The first 90 days at Hopper House are an immersion into recovery skills and gaining a recovered life.  Then if one desires they can lease an apartment for a longer period.
