It is vain to talk about the interest of the community, without understanding
what is the interest of
the individual.

Residents will be expected to participate in their personal recovery program, in house programming, and working towards their goals and follow in house guidelines and expectations. For the safety of the house and residents, all new residents will need to follow a two week restrictions program including no outside unescorted events or appointments.

Solace House uses a holistic approach that instills responsibility, personal integrity and accountability. Our in house program consists of various group activities aimed at engaging in real-life situations and learning how to have strong, supportive and positive relationships within the house.
