Our Halfway House Residences

We are a beautiful Halfway House residence near breathtaking beaches, we believe true recovery must be more than just a hiatus from reality. There needs to be serious change within the addicts psyche and spirit to stop drug and alcohol usage altogether. Hence, why our community, although lush and splendid, is focused on structure, fellowship, and deep healing in all facets of the individual – physically, mentally and spiritually.

When Other Programs Fail

Our close-knit sober living community has proven time and time again to be a successful step on the road to recovery.

12-Step Integrated

We are a sober living residence that promotes long-term recovery from addiction as modeled through the 12-Step process of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. AA and NA are a spiritual approach to recovery that, in our experience, is one of the most effective approaches for lasting sobriety.

Our Successful Approach

We are all too familiar with the incomprehensible demoralization brought about by alcoholism and drug addiction as well as the emotional, mental and spiritual damage as a result of failed treatment. The addict or alcoholic who is truly sick and tired, who has tried endless versions of the same ineffective treatment methods will find new hope at JC’s Recovery House.

Why JC's Recovery House?

Our sober-living facility teaches honesty, trust and mutual respect. We provide an environment in which our residents can overcome addiction and old behaviors with the help of our treatment program.
