                                      Homestead Inn Recovery Based Phases
 

At the Homestead Inn, your success in the 12-step program is of the utmost importance to your recovery. Getting actively involved in the recovery community is crucial for your success. The Recovery Based Phases outlined below are designed to help you along in your journey, and adherence to these phases is a requirement of residency. Before transitioning to the next phase, a conversation with the House Leader is required to request transition to the next phase. Changing phases is NOT automatic.
