Rebuilding Your Life at Eden Hill    

 

For many women with alcohol and substance use disorders, the tasks some people may label “simple” daily upkeep can prove exceptionally challenging—both in active addiction and continuing into sobriety. Encouraging the seemingly smallest tasks is the foundation for building self-esteem and fostering confidence, independence and discipline moving forward.

 

Residents are asked to make their beds every morning, perform their chores as required, and share responsibility for the upkeep of the house. To effectively build routines that can continue at home, each woman is responsible for arriving at all groups on time and abiding by all house rules.








Building Good Habits

Resuming day-to-day obligations like financial matters, correspondence with friends & family and personal & professional matters can be a healthy practice. At the glass table in the vestibule you will often find several women sitting in their “office” offering support to one another as they tackle these obligations that life demands. Residents take advantage of our high-speed wireless internet and laptop-friendly policy to take care of this business at home. We always monitor the amount of energy expended in these endeavors to ensure that women are not preoccupying themselves with matters outside of their recovery at the expense of their sobriety.

Learning how to balance the different aspects of being a sober adult can be difficult. Facing and addressing financial or work related topics can be difficult, so staff is always there to assist in any way possible. Assisting with step by step plans to complete goals, teaching budgeting techniques, helping to set personal boundaries, and other skill building assistance are just a few of the valuable tools staff is ready to offer our residents.



 




 

Preparing Meals In Our Chef's Kitchen


Our state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, in addition to exceptional local produce, inspire our residents to prepare fresh, healthy and delicious meals. Each night of the week residents gather together for dinner, sharing both meal preparation, lively conversation around the table and responsibility for cleaning the kitchen afterwards.

For many residents cooking can be a triggering process; creating a new context for this activity by replacing old memories with new sober ones is one example of how living at Eden Hill decreases the stress of the abrupt return home directly after treatment. 

 







Holidays at Eden Hill


Assistant Manager Anna McGuire (better known to residents as "Mom" - Maker of Memories) goes above and beyond to make Eden Hill feel even more like home on all holidays. Many residents select to stay at the house for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and the 4th of July as many women associate them with drinking and substance use.

Emotions often run high during the winter holidays which can be quite triggering for many women in early recovery. Anna does a wonderful job decorating the house and always prepares an enormous feast. Residents' families are always welcome to come visit and spend their holidays together at Eden Hill! Some of our favorite memories are from the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, the Halloween Dance Party and our Thanksgiving Feast.
