On-site Manager

An on-site manager helps residents with day-to-day issues. The on-site manager is there to help with conflict resolution, sober living adjustments, daily activities, and administration. The on-site manager is there to make sure everyone has what they need to make living at Tranquility House a good experience and a growth opportunity.

Regular And Random Drug Testing And Daily Breathalyzers

Regular and random drug testing keeps everybody honest. When you are living in a sober home, it is essential that you not use drugs or alcohol. Accountability is an important part of sobriety. Drug testing and daily breathalyzers are in the best interest of all the residents at Tranquility House.

Three Write-up Policy Before Asked To Leave

Living with other recovering addicts can be challenging. Residents have responsibilities to their house mates and chores to do around the house. Sometimes adjustments are difficult to make. If you are having trouble meeting expectations, we have a three write-up policy. That means you have plenty of opportunity to correct your behavior before being asked to leave. Unlike other places that just kick you out, we want to give you every opportunity to make sober living a success
