Seaside House has created a program of structure that honors the principles that are so critical to the twelve steps, being more than a series of completed tasks.
Each phase of the Seaside program focuses on principles that compliment the steps. We believe in the importance of sponsorship, we work on learning how to implement the steps at the house, with their brothers, and in their daily affairs.
Before treatment your life probably was chaotic, and stressful, with a consistent level of urgency or panic. Then, your treatment was an entirely different experience of extreme loss of freedom. Here is the good news...... Seaside House will feel like home, in the best possible way.
As with home, there are some requirements of being respectful and definitely responsibility, but you will realize there is a calmness, and comfort at Seaside House. The men at Seaside share a brotherhood, with team building activities, meetings, and social events. We honor birthdays, and success anniversaries to strengthen and celebrate the invisible, intangible feelings we refer to as brotherhood. What is brotherhood, you might ask?
It defies a definition because it is bigger and deeper than words, and must be experienced to be understood.
At this time of the program, you have made friends and realize that, Yes.... you do fit in. You are now part of a community that works together, encourages each other, and experiences awesome adventures together.
This is the phase where you start planning the next stages in your life adventure, career, academic, housing. focus on living life the fullest as if you were living on your own. You go anywhere and do anything you want, with another person in recovery. - all while in the structure of Seaside House.
