The District let it be known that house members were expected to work full time, actively participate in a twelve-step program, and be contributing members in their household. Our son entered The District after a few months in residential rehab. Soon after moving into The District, he had a ‘get well’ full-time job and friends he could rely on. The District had transportation services that our son used for work and other regularly scheduled activities such as recovery meetings.
Our son had tried other sober living environments but none had the appeal to our son that The District has. I started by saying that The District has been a lifesaver for our son; it has been a lifesaver for his parents too! Thanks John and Jack!”
Regular group activities are provided to complement the treatment the residents may be receiving. In addition to the therapeutic value of the group activities, they are just downright fun! My son most recently went skiing and deep sea fishing. He had a great time at both.
However, TDRC is not all fun and games. It’s about helping the resident to get well, by helping them to rebuild their individual confidence and self-esteem. It’s about drug testing the residents every three days to keep them honest and establishing responsibility for their life choices. It’s about helping the residents find employment so that they can begin to work themselves back into society and feel good about themselves. My son has made great progress while at TDRC. He now has a full-time job which adds purpose (and money!) to his life. The co-founders of TDRC, Jack Petti and John Whitehouse, have been very easy to work with and very supportive. A couple times per month, I get an email from John providing the status of my son’s progress so that I have some independent insight as to how things are going with my son. TDRC is a great place for my recovering son!”
After 90 days of inpatient treatment, a friend I met in treatment and I decided together to go to The District Recovery Community.
I was hesitant at first, but what I found there was something I had never experienced before. A group of boys with a common goal — working together to become men. I spent almost two years at The District Recovery community and am now working at an Insurance Brokerage. I am signing my second year-long lease. I now have a wonderful relationship with my parents, I’ve found a community of those that I can rely upon and who can rely on me, and I remain great friends with the same friend I started this journey with almost three years ago.
I would not be where I am or who I am today without The District Recovery Community.
