Severn Home Program Overview

Welcome to the overview of the Severn Home Sober Living program. We have divided our program into five key stages. These stages are vital indicators of your progress while a community resident. Please take some time to look over the five different stages of our recovery home.

Stage One 30 days

The first 30 days of residence are dedicated to developing a strong foundation and support group during the early recovery phases. Residents will need to attend four recovery meetings each week and attend all house activities. Residents must also work towards finding a sponsor in their preferred recovery fellowship.

Stage Two 30-90 days

After the first 30 days, certain restrictions are lifted. You can have one overnight pass every other week. You should have a sponsor and become more active in the recovery community by this point. At this point, if you do not already have a job, then actively searching for employment is next on the agenda.

Stage Three 90-150 days

Demonstrating that you are an active participant in your recovery and completing the first 90 days at Severn Home, fewer restrictions are put in place. You can have an overnight pass one day a week, the curfew is extended, and you no longer have to sign in and out when leaving the house.

Stage Four 150-365 days

In stage four, there is no longer a curfew or scheduled time to wake up. By this point, you must have a full-time job unless you are a student. Meeting requirements are lifted, and attending house activities are encouraged but no longer mandatory.

Stage Five 365 days + Beyond

First & foremost, congratulations on celebrating one year with Severn Home. This is genuinely a tremendous milestone in your recovery. Once you have completed the first 365 days, the rules and requirements, for the most part, are lifted. You have shown you can remain sober and are a trustworthy resident. From this point, the goal is to remain in the house as long as you can and continue to work your steps and lifestyle to maintain sobriety and happiness. We recommend a minimum length of a year's stay. We still highly encourage you to stay involved with house activities and meetings throughout your stay at the Severn Home.

Severn Home Mentor Program

We understand the first couple weeks after treatment can be the most difficult. Working on your recovery while moving into a house with others you don’t know can be stressful. Severn Homes has a mentor program to help navigate and alleviate stress over the first month. The house manager will assign a tenured Severn Home resident as a mentor for all newcomers. The mentor will be chosen based on common characteristics with the new resident and with whom we feel they will jell best. This mentor will follow up with the new resident daily, introduce them to other residents, answer any questions, help guide them through the house stages, discuss any hardships, etc. This mentor will also be required to take new residents to an outside meeting at least once a week over the first month.

Structured Accountability

Severn home is more than a comfortable and safe environment. Our sober living program offers all residents structured accountability and random drug testing. We offer much-needed support in the early phases of recovery. We encourage Residents to be active During their first year of sobriety. We also encourage residents to enroll in continued evidence-based therapy. Some clients engage in private individual treatment, and others in intensive outpatient services. We encourage ongoing therapy while a resident is in our sober living.
