The Miller House

CODE OF ETHICS & PRACTICE

 

 

 

 

 

The purpose of The Miller House is to promote a continued lifestyle of sobriety for women over the age of 25 in a safe and affordable residence that is supported by a cooperative peer recovery model.

**Whole health is supported and alcohol and drug use is not allowed on these premises at ANY time or by ANY one, including guests; nor is use at any time by residents off the property.  Immediately inform the Director of any substance use of fellow residents whether inside or outside the residence.  Confidentiality of random substance screenings will be maintained.

**Personal safety is honored with the prohibition of firearms and weapons on the premises and physical violence and/or threats of violence are not tolerated; Do No Harm.

**Connection is the Opposite of Addiction making attendance at weekly house meetings with the Director is mandatory in addition to participation in household upkeep. 

 

**Independent growth and contribution are expected and require a minimum of 20 hours of work/school/volunteering each week.

**Personal recovery comes first requiring attendance at regular 12 Step or other recovery meetings is required at least three times per week.

**Individual boundaries for privacy, confidentiality, and serenity are respected.

 

**We will treat everyone with dignity and respect as valued individuals and will be inclusive of all residents in house decision-making and activities.

**We will be role models of positive recovery in the house and in the community and work to resist gossip, hearsay, and rumors.

**The residence will maintain a home environment and Director will share community resources for therapy and/or clinical services as needed.

About

At The Miller House, we know that every recovery journey is different and our founding goal is to provide support to women seeking lifelong recovery from alcohol and substance use.  Having a home that is free from alcohol and substance use is essential to that goal and The Miller House clients may rest easy knowing they are safe among peers who share a sober lifestyle.

The Miller House is owned and operated by a woman with years of sobriety who cares about providing residents a safe space for learning to live free from substances and the triggers of past "people, places and playgrounds," while allowing them the dignity to come and go as they wish within respectful boundaries for roommates and maintaining a foundation of stability and accountability.

We offer our private bedrooms in an affordable home environment with regular support from a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach Professional with solid sobriety and a strong recovery network to provide continued guidance for maintaining long-term sobriety.

Initial program agreement can be 3, 6 or 12 months with renewal options for up to 2 years.
