Peer Driving Community
The Healing Place Men’s Transitional Living home in the Dallas area is focused on long term sobriety and successful transition back into their daily lives. Peer accountability has been proven as a great asset to accomplishing these goals.
Peer driven accountability allows residents to engage with and be held accountable by other men in a similar situation. This creates an environment where they are becoming more mindful of their and other’s actions and behaviors.
Some of the ways peer driven accountability works:
- Weekly “house meetings” where residents are able to share their observations of each other in a safe setting
- Frequent “check in” discussions in which residents will update each other on where they are in their recovery process
- Spiritual Work
- 12 – Step Work
- Serving Others
- Physical Health
- Scheduled accountability meetings for community members to share observations around their peers’ behaviors, thoughts, and actions which are precursors to relapse
- Relapse prevention discussions
- A “family” community is strongly encouraged for those staying at The Healing Place
