Healing Point House
Healing Point House is a sober living environment designed to provide stable and affordable housing for individuals committed to their recovery. Located in Saukville, WI, the house is the first and only established sober house in Ozaukee County designed to serve men aged 18 and older.
During the early phases of recovery, the transition back to living in the community can be a vulnerable time for those who have had difficulties maintaining sobriety on their own. The potential for relapse often exists on the forefront of the minds of those in early sobriety, as they are often starting to go through the process of defining and addressing problems in other areas of their lives that were affected by substance use. It can also be a challenge to continue learning each day, to transition through the early euphoric stages of early recovery (where everything is easy and going well) to the daily and mundane consistencies and habit building that long-term sobriety requires to be successful. To assist the complexity of these challenges, Healing Point House provides a comprehensive housing alternative for those looking to work on various goals while having the opportunity to practice accountability and cooperation amongst other like-minded individuals (other participants). The program is ideally for individuals who have cited a lack of success in managing their recovery independently, and have recognized that without sobriety, other aspects of their life cannot be expected to improve over the long term. The program is also ideal for individuals who do not need case management services from the house or are already receiving case management from another provider in the community

Is Healing Point House a Halfway House?

Healing Point House is not a halfway house. As a sober living program, our purpose is to assist individuals who view their sobriety as the most significant priority in their lives. While participants can expect freedom to work and participate in outside activities and hobbies as appropriate, they can also expect a culture of cooperation and accountability with working a recovery program and building structure in their life — all of which can help increase chances of maintaining sobriety for the long term. If the goal is to successfully recover and rebuild life circumstances, then Healing Point can be a great tool to assist individuals with those priorities.

Is Healing Point a treatment center? Are counseling or case management services provided?

Healing Point House is not staffed by licensed therapists, so it is not considered a treatment center. If participants feel they would benefit from an intensive outpatient or basic outpatient treatment program, this can be pursued as needed while engaging in the house program. Healing Point can provide treatment referrals or other ongoing service referrals to participants during the program.

Are participants considered tenants?

While at Healing Point House, participants are not legally considered a tenant under the federal Fair Housing Act and Americans with Disabilities Act. Participants do not have the same rights as a legal tenant, and for this reason, members in the house would not go through an eviction process in order to be discharged from the program.

What is expected participants at Healing Point House?

To help the house serve its purpose, participants are expected the follow the house rules, policies and expectations. These requirements cover guidelines that help make the house a comfortable and cooperative environment for all participants. In addition to this, participants are generally be expected to be active in recovery, to get along with others and build structure, namely through employment and attending approved recovery meetings in the community. Participants also must attend the mandatory weekly house meeting.

Do participants need to obtain and maintain employment while at Healing Point?

Everyone who resides in the house must work a minimum of 30 hours per week. If a participant is unemployed upon move in, they are expected to actively seek employment and keep Healing Point staff informed of progress. Healing Point staff are able to assist with sharing employment opportunities. Participants are expected to heavily focus on finding immediate employment within the first 30 days. The benefits and reasons for this are threefold: employment prevents isolation, creates structure and program fees remain affordable.

Can those in retirement, on disability, or participating in higher education enter the program?

Yes, though individuals who meet the criteria of retirement and/or disability are required to create and maintain an active lifestyle of recovery in the community. An active lifestyle can include frequent meeting attendance, volunteering and/or participation in other community endeavors. Activities in the community are encouraged since they can help prevent isolation and complacency in recovery.

Can those with an open criminal case and/or on probation participate in the program?

Yes, candidates with open cases are eligible to apply and participate in the program. If a candidate with these circumstances is approved to enter the program, a signed release of information is required between Sirona Recovery and the associated agent. This will allow Healing Point to provide updates to agent regarding participant status in the program.

To help assess eligibility and other requirements, agents interested in referring candidates to the program are encouraged to contact Healing Point staff prior to referring a candidate to the program.

How long are participants expected to stay in the program?

The ideal length of time is 6-12 months. Candidates and participants can be approved to leave sooner or stay longer with prior approval from Healing Point staff.

What if a participant does not have a car?
