Support Through Early Recovery and Beyond
Recovery requires the repetition of simple daily routines. This daily action helps us develop life skills and transforms our perception of ourselves and our place in the world. Many of us have struggled in meeting normal adult responsibilities. By implementing a daily routine consistent with the 12 Steps and spiritual principles we find we are able to face life successfully. We learn how to navigate life’s hardships and cultivate happiness, joy, and freedom. We develop meaning and purpose in our lives and are able to turn our dark past into our greatest asset through sharing our experience strength and hope with our fellows. Early recovery can span 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 acquiring long-term recovery.

Keystone enforces a daily schedule designed to promote a 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 after that.
Keystone has zero tolerance for the 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 meetings 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
- Issues or concerns which require extensive discussion will be addressed with management before the weekly house meeting.
- Each meeting ends with a prayer for serenity
