Thriving United is developing Angel Haven Village as permanent peer supportive recovery residence community for individuals living a life of recovery. The proposed homes will be a small network of premanufactured homes to be used as affordable recovery residences. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines recovery as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives and strive to reach their full potential.
In order to prove the concept of having a Peer Supportive Recovery Community, we are going to be doing the building in 3 phases. Look at the picture below in order to see a better idea of the 3 phase concept. We should have the 1st phase done by the middle of 2021. The other 2 phases depends on funding at this moment. So, WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this a reality! Your donations mean HOPE! Hope for a generation that breaks the cycle of addictive and harmful habits! HOPE for a community to heal. HOPE for a voice to be given to the voiceless. HOPE that addiction is no longer a stigma! HOPE that our community sees the damage of addiction and comes together! HOPE that your loved ones can and will recover! If you want to give to the cause, please click here:
Our mission is to provide affordable housing for individuals who want to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle as members of a supportive, loving family and community through use of evidence-based practices, standards, support services, research, education, and advocacy.
Recovery residences provide safe, healthy, abstinent living environments based on the social model of recovery as differentiated from the clinical model of recovery. The emphasis is on developing mutual support and skills for people in recovery that will enable them to lead productive lives in communities.
The National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) established a National Standard for recovery residences in 2011. Thriving United utilizes the NARR standards as guidelines, rules, and requirements for living in these homes. The residents sign a family membership contract that details the requirements of abstinence and a code of citizenship ethics.
The social model approach is the foundation of all recovery residences. Oxford House and Sober Living are examples of other model recovery homes. DePaul University performed a statistical survey of 795 participants in the Oxford House program and found that extended participation in recovery residency improved the probability of long-term sobriety significantly, approaching 87%.
The recovery residence provides a strong connection between recovery people and provides an environment that is affordable and conducive for recovery. The principles of recovery are spirituality and altruism.
