What are the requirements for living at a TRIM house?

TRIM house participants are required to follow a set of House Rules and Guidelines.

In general, all TRIM house participants must:

  • maintain abstinence from all drugs and alcohol while living at a TRIM house;
  • work an abstinence-based program of recovery (we recommend a 12-Step based program), which includes meeting with a sponsor on a weekly basis;
  • attend a minimum of three recovery meetings per week, in addition to the weekly house meeting;
  • maintain full-time employment or the equivalent in volunteer-time;
  • contribute to alternating weekly chores;
  • commit to reside at a TRIM house for at least six (6) months; and
  • not be romantically or sexually involved with other participants in the house.

How much does it cost?

Sober Deposit:

  • A fully refundable* Sober Deposit of $500 is due prior to your move-in date.  *Sober Deposit details, including its refund requirements, are covered in more detail in your participant agreement.

Program Fees:

  • Each participant is required to pay a program fee of $625, due on the 1st (first) of each month.
  • Each participant is required to pay a toiletry fee of $30, due on the 15th (fifteenth) of each month.

Is there a clean-time/sobriety requirement to live at a TRIM house?

Yes.  TRIM houses require applicants to have at least 30 (thirty) days clean and sober before their move-in date.  However, an exception can be made for applicants coming right from an in-patient treatment facility.
