Finish the Steps
While in Primary Care, guests at The Plymouth House generally work Steps 1-7 of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Working the remaining steps, however, is critical to maintaining long-term sobriety and truly transforming one’s life. In our Extended Care Program participants have the opportunity to finish all 12 Steps with their 12-Step Contact.
Be of Service
We also encourage our Extended Care participants to volunteer with us. The 12th step emphasizes service to others, so we give participants opportunities to do that. We volunteer at several local nonprofit organizations including Wayside Food Programs, Preble Street (Shelter), Center for Grieving Children, Portland Recovery Community Center and Winter Kids.
Participants in aftercare also have the opportunity to take part in wellness programs, such as yoga and fitness.
Extended Care participants can continue to attend life skills workshops, such as budgeting, resume building and bad credit repair.
Offering a rigorous, practical program in a highly structured environment, Plymouth House Extended Care is specifically designed to prepare each guest for success when they move on to the greater independence of sober living. We do our absolute best to prepare individuals for facing life sober for the long haul. For more information anytime.
