Recovery Housing

Currently, 4D has one recovery house for male-identified individuals in recovery with plans to expand to more housing in the near future. Our housing provides a safe, peer-supported, affordable, and substance-free housing opportunity. 

What is a supported recovery housing?

Supported recovery housing — also referred to as a halfway house or sober living  — offer a great post-treatment or early recovery option for those new to recovery. Residents live with a group of peers who are all in recovery. These homes provide a supportive environment that bridges the gap between a treatment facility and returning to independent living. 

Our supported recovery housing is a great option for those who are worried about returning home to an environment where they last used drugs and alcohol, or where family members and partners may not be in recovery. Being around drugs and alcohol could seriously derail recovery, and supported housing can help alleviate this risk. 

Recovery housing typically will require participants to be involved in some type of peer support. This includes mutual aid meetings like AA or Refuge Recovery, a peer mentor, and shared chores within the home. Fellow residents are encouraged to provide support and encouragement to their peers in the house. Typically, residents who have been there the longest and have a period of sustained recovery will provide support for newer residents.

What are the benefits of supported recovery housing?

We know that social and community support is a crucial component of sustained recovery. Having peers on hand who have experienced the recovery journey provides a level of empathy and support that you may not otherwise experience returning home. Peers in recovery can encourage you on your journey and deter you from returning to old habits, like hanging out with old friends and family members who are still using drugs. 

Recovery housing is particularly helpful for those who are struggling to maintain periods of recovery.

Research suggests that residents achieve the greatest success when their stay is at least 90 days, with many residents maintaining their recovery for 12 to 18 months after leaving the recovery house. There were also improvements in arrests, mental illness, and employment. 

Testimonials from 4D’s supported recovery housing

I was afraid to use medication-assisted treatment because lots of sober homes won’t let you in if you are using methadone. But, after multiple heroin relapses and a couple of overdoses, I decided to give methadone a try. While in residential treatment, I started going to 4D with my mentor and I learned that 4D’s Recovery House welcomes people on methadone so I moved in. I now feel like I am starting to make real progress in my life.

“I have had a hard time following the rules and I kept getting kicked out of recovery houses because they really seemed like treatment and I was tired of that. The 4D house has rules, but I really feel like the whole house enforces the rules, like we are a family or something. Plus, I get to use my mentor when I want and hang out at 4D all the time. It is a lot different then treatment.”

“I thought I was going to be able to get my own apartment when I was in treatment, but I soon realized that the Portland apartment scene wasn’t felony-friendly and was really expensive. I heard about the 4D house and decided to get a mentor too. After living in a shared room for four months, I was able to find a place with single rooms. I thought 4D was going to be upset, but they weren’t and I still meet with my mentor and play on their recovery softball team.” 

What are the requirements to live in recovery housing?

All those living in our supportive recovery housing community must be abstinent from all drugs, including alcohol. We expect those living in the house to maintain their recovery, with continued abstinence and engagement with 4D’s recovery peer services. Every resident will be required to pay a monthly fee of $475.
