Support Through Early Recovery...and Beyond
Early recovery requires the repetition of a daily disciplined practice. This practice hones our skills of life, and changes our perception of our place in the world. Many of us have never learned how to live in a functional way, it is new to us. In the daily committed practice of recovery in action we not only adapt to a new way of living, our horizons are opened to a life beyond anything we have ever imagined. We are packing into to the stream of life, through service, and in this way building health for ourselves. The morbid reflection which was our lives becomes a joyful outward focus we feel good about. Because the early recovery period is actually a number of years, those who choose to strengthen their practice in a safe and structured sober living environment have an exponentially higher chance of achieving long term recovery.
At Keystone, you will...
build a foundation of honesty and trust with yourself and those around you;
focus on learning to live in the world, and learn how to effectively deal with everyday stresses of life while remaining clean and sober;
learn positive behaviors and habits that become engrained in your everyday life.

Keystone enforces a daily schedule designed to promote gradual and sustainable recovery. Everyone is required to attend daily 12 step meetings for their first 90 days of sobriety and a minimum of three meetings each week thereafter.
Keystone has a zero tolerance for use of alcohol and/or drugs and conducts random urinalysis testing and/or alcohol screenings.
House meetings maintain a positive and supportive environment. Therefore, they are mandatory for all house guests.
The objective of the meeting is to support the Keystone philosophy and bring issues to the group for discussion and resolution.
The meeting format is generally:
Management will provide a weekly update
Each guest will have some time to articulate problems experienced during the past week
Problems which require extensive discussion will be addressed with management prior to the weekly house meeting.
