Since its conception in 2009, the Adult Recovery House (ARH) and the Clean and Sober Recovery Houses (Lily House, Red Cedar House, and Butterfly House) have provided supportive services to hundreds of Tribal and community members finding a way out of addiction and moving into a lifestyle of recovery.
The program offers Recovery Homes, Housing, Independent Living, and Case Management.
This residential support and behavioral health service is a life saver for many of our Tribal members struggling with addiction. Many residents transition to gainful employment, are now driving with a reinstated license or obtained a license for the first time, and living a healthy, recovery based lifestyle.
The Adult Recovery House is a 365 day 24 hour facility providing clean and sober support and fellowship. The ARH can accommodate up to 14 Men and 12 Women who reside in separate wings. With the work and support of the community; many families have been reunited and multiple Tribal members that have been through this program are now actively employed at the Recovery House, spearheading recovery for other Tribal and community members.
The Red Cedar House is a majestic home strategically located to all the amenities important to Men in early recovery. It is within walking distance to transportation lines, Behavioral Health and the Medical clinic. This three-bedroom home provides a space for up to 5 males in recovery from drugs or alcohol.
Consistent with all our clean and sober recovery houses, the residents have house meetings on a weekly basis, attend sober support meetings and are subjects or random drug screenings.
The Butterfly House has been instrumental in transitioning women in recovery to reunify with their children while still maintaining engagement in sober support meetings, attending weekly house meetings and providing random drug screening.
The Lily House is a six bedroom clean and sober recovery home for women and their children, and opened its doors to Women in recovery in March 2015. It is a beautiful home located near bus lines and all the amenities that a parent needs to raise a family.
It is a home for Women in early recovery from alcohol and drugs. The residents and their children benefit from a positive living environment that balances independence with support and structure. They attend weekly house meetings, sober support meetings, and are subject to random drug screenings. This program is a big success!
BHP staff members participated in a six month Herbal Foundation Apprenticeship instructed by Valerie Segrest. Two mental health counselors and one outreach aid (Muckleshoot Tribal Member) participated to gain field experience harvesting, identifying traditional plants of the Muckleshoot People to gain an understanding of how plant teachings offer support with social and emotional health. The course was supported by SAMSHA Harvesting Our Wellness Grant. The second phase of this program includes the addition of apothecary cabinets at Adult BHP, FYS, and Sacred House to offer traditional medicines and incorporate more holistic methods of healing.
