Frequently Asked Questions

RGSWV is a 501(c)3 organization with a Board of Directors composed of local community leaders, a full-time Director, Community Engagement Specialist (CES), and certified Peer Recovery Support Specialists (PRSS). We also have Recovery Coaches and Technicians at each home to provide coverage when the Director, CES, or PRSS is not present in the home.

We are a community-based group offering faith based recovery programs, capitalizing on the wisdom of those who have walked the road from addiction to freedom.  We are focused on showing compassion to those who have find themselves in slavery to something they never imagined could actually control their lives!

We support evidence-based practices that promote social and emotional well-being, prevention-approached, person-centered intervention and self-directed and/or recovery-driven support services.

Recovery is a process of change whereby individuals work to improve their own health through social inclusion or engaging in supportive recovery communities.  Peer Coaching, Recovery Support Center Services, and Supports for Self-Directed Care are effective components of the process. Recovery facilities provide safe housing for individuals, ages eighteen and older, who are recovering from substance use.

We are in partnership with the Southwestern Regional Day Report Center, which provides Intensive Outpatient services for individuals on the Treatment Supervision track.

The length of stay for participants range anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the program track, the individual, the court system and/or DHHR (CPS), and the Director.

Each applicant must submit an application and be interviewed by the Director and/or representative.  During this interview, the applicant will be questioned about the length of their sobriety time and drug of choice.  This helps to determine if the applicant may need to go through a detox center prior to being accepted.

We work with the court system to provide alternative sentencing as part of the Jurisdictional Reinvestment Initiative.  We work with the DHHR on CPS cases where an individual may have had their children taken into temporary custody and the CPS worker is working to re-unite the parent with their child to restore the family unit.  We also have residents that are self-admitted.

Participants are prohibited from the use of any and all electronic devices until after completing their first phase (minimum of 60 days).

Smoking is permitted in designated areas outside the homes.

Part time or Full time employment is not permitted until participants have reached Phase 3 of the program (min. 120 days).  This is considered on a case-by-case basis.
