Can You Get Kicked Out for Not Paying Your Rent?
Yes, Living Clean has a strict policy on paying rent. Residents are responsible for paying their rent by the first of each month, no later than the fifth of the month. If there are unusual circumstances, a person may be allowed to pay their rent late and there will be a late fee. When a resident pays his rent late, his actions affect the entire house. Paying rent on time teaches discipline and personal responsibility. So, your actions don’t just affect you. If you don’t keep up with rent or shrug off your payment responsibilities.
How Much Does a Room Cost?
Living Clean room rates vary with each location. All of our homes are located in residential areas, providing a comfortable and warm environment. Each room comes furnished.
What Are Some Typical Rules?
Our transitional homes are for just one gender, MALE. It has been our experience that making our homes gender-specific allows us to limit potential sexual or romantic situations. Our homes have strict policies against all mind-altering, mood-changing substances. All medication must be kept in a lockbox. We scrutinize over the counter medications, medication prescribed by physicians and personal care items that could jeopardize a residents’ recovery, put the house at risk as a whole, or cause a relapse because it contains addictive drugs or alcohol.
How Long Does Someone Stay?
Our homes are intended to serve as a stepping stone for individuals transitioning from homelessness or treatment. However, some may stay longer depending on their circumstances. If they are doing well in the home and keeping up with the requirements, a resident may stay up to 5 years.
Does Living Clean Allow Residents with Criminal Backgrounds?
Yes, most of our residents have a criminal background or may be in the process of dealing with legal trouble. The men that enter our program are seeking a good place to be while they get the details of their sober lifestyle figured out. We do not accept residents with cases in arson, violent felonies, or sex offenders.
Are There Rules for Living Clean?
There are a few rules in place to keep everyone safe, emotionally, and physically.
Do we encourage using Suboxone While in Transitional Living and Recovery Housing?
Living Clean and Inspired does not in any way encourage the use of Suboxone in a casual or ongoing manner, or in any manner shown to be contrary to that of the instructions of a qualified physician. This opiate-based “miracle drug” is estimated to be up to 40-60 percent more potent than morphine and more addicting than heroin, and thus should be taken with great caution and on a short-term basis only.
