ASH Program


Each Monday, ASH residents gather for our weekly dinner, which is followed by our weekly meeting.  In the meeting we discuss a broad spectrum of topics and ideas related to sober living. Who is responsible for which chores, upcoming social events, useful hours production, and AA meeting attendance.  Skills employers desire and personal financial management are topic that have been addressed in Monday group meetings. 

ASH encourages residents to get active and engage. Isolation and idleness are discouraged. 

Other ASH program features include a curfew, defined visitor hours and an expectation of community. Our on-site manager helps guide our residents to ensure that these time-tested living modes become reality for ASH residents and not just words on paper.
