Transitioning from an inpatient treatment program to life in recovery can be a difficult process. Stonecrop is a structured sober living residence where women can start to reclaim and rebuild their lives. Our structured sober living model encompasses accountability, 12 step principles, and life skills encouragement to assist in meeting the challenges of lasting recovery.
Alcoholics Anonymous frameworks a specific outline for living which address all areas of addiction, specifically mind, body, and spirit. Through constant action and practice of the 12 step principles, we are able to gain freedom and lasting recovery.
We believe that service work and helping others is the largest contributing factor to a life of fulfillment. Residents of Stonecrop are active members in their Burlington community. They are also strong members of their 12 step community.
One of the unique features of Stonecrop are the groups we offer teaching multiple life skills to our residents. Part of living life in recovery is learning to do basic life skills that many brush aside as not important. We offer various groups such as resume building, job interview coaching, and cooking classes, just to name a few. We are always adding enriching life skills groups to meet the needs of our ever changing population of residents.
