Relapse Prevention and Recovery Housing

Relapse Prevention - Thursday from 9 am to 12 noon 

This group meets every Thursday from 9 am to 12 noon. They focus on the idea that relapse is a predictable, nonrandom event that is obvious to the therapist and other clients. The goal of these groups is to educate the client and identify the signs of relapse early, so it can be prevented. 

 Topics involve:

  • Shame, guilt, and resentment.
  • Finding appropriate uses of time.
  • Measures to build motivation.
  • Identifying triggers of relapse.
  • Building self-monitoring skills while downplaying the role of willpower.


Healthy House and Abigail's Palace 

GFM The Synergy Center has partnered with both Healthy House and Abiligal's Palace to provide a sober living environment to women who are in recovery who need the support of a structured living environment.  If you need support or assistance in your journey to recovery with supportive housing, please contact us today at the number below. 


Recovery Housing: “Recovery Housing” means housing for individuals recovering from drug addiction that provides an alcohol and drug-free living environment, peer support, assistance with obtaining drug addiction services, and other drug addiction recovery assistance. 


NARR Levels of Recovery Residences: NARR has established four levels of recovery residences that offer differing levels of care.  Rather than serving as a linear, step-down continuum of services, the models meet the varying needs of people in recovery, allowing them to move in and out of the levels as needed, and as the resources are available. 

While recovery housing may encompass models outside of NARR’s four levels of recovery residences, this framework is useful for understanding the research base behind recovery housing. Each level of recovery residence provides peer-based recovery support with a varying range of structured and peer support services (e.g., in-residence case management, employment support, or life skills training) to meet the needs of residents. 


Outcomes: Research on recovery housing shows positive outcomes and reflects all of the pieces that are needed to help a person regain stability, and the personal, social, and economic domains that are affected by addiction. 


Costs and Benefits of Recovery Housing: Studies attempting to calculate the economic costs and benefits of establishing recovery homes have overwhelmingly found that the benefits far outweigh the costs.  Numerous other studies have evaluated other tangible outcomes for individuals living in recovery homes.
