Supportive Services

We know that anyone can recover regardless of where they came from.

We care about where you are now and where you are going.

*Please note that our recovery housing programs are flexible and accommodates those who are already employed and/or in school upon entrance. Cells phones and other electronic devices are allowed during all phases of our program.

We believe that using drugs and alcohol is just a symptom of the problem- not the actual problem itself. Once you’ve been successful at removing drugs and alcohol from your life, the work of repairing destructive attitudes, behaviors, and negative patterns begins. This is where you find peace and calm in recovery and throughout all areas of your life. We believe in focusing on the solution in the present, not on the past. We know that anyone can recover regardless of where they came from. We care about where you are now and where you are going.

Beyond the 30-day Orientation, there are no time lengths for the phases, as each client is unique and moves at their own pace according to their needs and progress. Our program is designed to help you move forward- not hold you back! Please note that our program is flexible and accommodates clients who are already employed upon entrance to Harmony House. Cells phones and other electronic devices are allowed during all phases of our program.

The Orientation Phase

How It Works

Our clients enter the New Hope Rising Recovery Housing Program on the Orientation Phase.
This initial 30-day period is specifically designed to assist our residents with acclimating to their new environment and learning what it feels like to be in recovery once outside of the structure of inpatient treatment. Individualized Recovery Plans (IRPs) are developed with the client to find out what their goals are and what they hope to achieve in our program and their lives. In addition to beginning outpatient treatment, residents will attend daily 12-step meetings in the community, build a support network, and obtain a sponsor and a home group.

We expect that making clear decisions in early recovery can be challenging at times. Free time during this early phase is accounted for, and for the first two weeks there is a buddy system in place. When leaving the residence clients will choose another resident to take with them who has already successfully completed the Orientation Phase. Exceptions to this guideline are made when the client on orientation is going to work, meeting with their sponsor, or having visitation with their children. Overnight passes are not permitted during Orientation. Rest assured that the Orientation Phase passes quickly and is not meant to place restrictions on our clients, but rather to ensure that they build a strong foundation in their recovery, get grounded in their surroundings, and successfully move forward in our program and beyond to attain their goals.

Our Orientation Phase is one of the unique aspects of our program that makes it so successful, because when you build a strong foundation for your recovery in the beginning and are allowed time to focus solely on your unique healing process, the sky is the limit and you can achieve your full potential!

A Focus on Employment & Education

The NHR program encourages personal goal development in all areas.

An emphasis is placed on self-sufficiency and integration into community life. Our staff assists residents with re-entering the workforce and regaining their independence by helping with resume development and job searching. The structure of our program is flexible for those already employed upon entrance to our program. We also provide assistance to residents who are interested in furthering their education, whether at a collegiate or vocational level.

A Focus on Community & Recreation

Our programs provide the opportunity to build a recovery support system among fellow residents, as well as within the thriving Long Island recovery community. We believe that learning to have fun in recovery and developing hobbies and interests is critical. We incorporate a variety of recreational activities each month to foster a sense of community and friendship.
