It is in Stage 4 that our ladies have the opportunity to grow further in their newfound lifestyle of recovery. This stage includes many of the same recovery tactics used in the first three stages, but offers more responsibility. In addition, mothers with visitation rights to their children will be able to introduce them to the house through scheduled weekend visitations.

Stage 5 is the final stage of our program. Women who are in the fifth stage have exhibited exponential growth and are ready to take on the world as productive, driven, and sober citizens in our community. Stage 5 offers the most responsibility. These final months of the program truly do complete the preparation process, as our ladies prepare to immerse themselves back into our community and life outside the House.
