A Safe Place

Getting sober requires a different environment than what you are used to. If you go back to where you were before instead of coming to a recovery house, there’s a much higher chance you will relapse. Sure, everyone may say that relapse is a part of recovery. But it doesn’t have to be.

Sees-the-Day is a recovery house for people who are serious about getting clean and sober. Sees-the-Day has specific rules as well as a structured environment that will assure you and your loved ones of your safety.

You must attend 90 NA/AA meetings in 90 days.  If you are not 100% serious about getting and staying clean, this recovery house may not be the place for you. We have these rules so that you can learn to live a responsible life and transition back into society. We also want to make it safe for everyone else living in the recovery house with you.
