Yes, visitation is allowed – typically on Sundays and visitor days. However, other arrangements can be made in special situations or to accommodate visitors’ schedules.
Do clients have access to internet? Cell phones?
We encourage communication with friends and families; however, during the beginning of our programs we do not allow personal devices. Clients eventually have access to phones and computers during their stay; accessibility is something that’s decided with each individual’s best interests in mind.
How does Choice House differ from other programs?
The Choice House program is a community-oriented approach to helping individuals thrive. We focus on brotherhood, community, and forming deep, meaningful connections with our clients. This isn’t an expansive, 100-bed program that focuses on numbers. We offer a massive support system, delivered through an authentic experience that’s meant to help support our clients on their lifelong journey with sobriety.
What is Choice House’s position on Buprenorphine (Buprenex, Suboxone)?
We have the ability to taper clients off of Buprenorphine. If someone comes in on Buprenorphine, we establish a short-term plan (between 7 to 10 days) to taper them off.
Will clients have access to outdoor activities?
Yes, Choice House clients enjoy movies on the weekends, hiking, going to the gym, disc golf, pool days, and more.
