The Butte SPIRIT Home is a state licensed recovery home, housing up to seven adult males recovering from Substance Use Disorder. Residents must meet the ASAM placement criteria for 3.1 level of care. The average stay for residents is 3-6 months, after which they transition back into family or independent living in the community. During the stay at the SPIRIT Home, residents form important relationships with other people in recovery, receive peer support, attend meetings, and receive traditional therapy in an outpatient treatment setting. As each resident builds the tools that will help them to be successful in recovery, SPIRIT Home staff assists in finding employment, and ultimately assisting each person with locating their own housing at the end of their stay with us.
In order to be considered for acceptance into the recovery home, prospective residents must complete and submit an application with a copy of a recent physical, TB test, substance use disorder evaluation, and complete an interview.
Though most of our referrals come from in-patient treatment facilities, participation in residential treatment is not mandatory for acceptance into the home. The biggest requirement is a personal commitment to recovery, demonstrated by at least 30 days of continuous sobriety prior to entrance into the home.
When entering the recovery home, residents receive a Resident Handbook and Treatment Plan. It will be the resident’s responsibility to read the handbook and begin to work on the assignments on their treatment plan.
Each man will be assigned a Licensed Addictions Counselor through our nearby partner, the SMART Program, and if appropriate, undergo additional mental and behavioral health evaluation. Everyone is required to attend weekly groups and individual sessions.
Along with treatment requirements, residents will also be required to obtain employment within 4 weeks of admission into the house. If a resident is not employed they are expected to be actively searching for work, involved in school or some type of training, or doing some type of volunteer work in the community.
