We lost our son Alex to the disease of addiction at age 23. In his memory, a sober living home has been opened in Saskatoon.

 Alexander’s House offers its residents the valuable time, structure,  and peer group needed to strengthen their opportunity for a healthy transition from treatment to living a sober lifestyle..

 Many people try to go back into their old situation right away; but this disease is many-faceted; and often their family, friends, and old relationships have not changed.  It is far too easy to fall back into unhealthy patterns without structure.

With heartfelt pride, we at Alexander's House are grateful to announce a partnership with the Oxford House Society of Regina.  Our collaborative efforts will provide greater access to sober housing in Saskatoon with a commitment to expansion in the near future.  The legacy of our son will live on.

Services

This is for males, ages 18 and over who have completed a primary alcohol or drug addiction treatment program.

There is support to oversee the day to day organization of everyday living.  This includes mandated chores;  peer meetings; 12- step meetings; peer accountability

This plan is designed to build balanced recovery skills; to outline essential core services, options for volunteering if appropriate, and referrals to other helping individuals. Residents are encouraged to practice new skills and behaviors as they return to everyday life.

The experience here will help individuals to:

  •  Apply Twelve Step principles to daily living
  •  Make healthy choices
  •  Develop a sense of community
  •  Improve relationships with family and others
  •  Identify relapse triggers and put plans for prevention into action.

What is Included

  • Fully furnished shared double or single rooms
  • Full kitchen

It is our philosophy that all residents must be self-supporting. This means that you will be required to pay for your housing. We make this easier by offering fully-furnished facilities. You come with your own toiletries and medications.  Grocery shopping and food preparation are shared between the members, and you are encouraged to adopt healthy eating habits.  We ask that you bring with you a positive intention to develop new habits and create a lifestyle that is productive and balanced.

 

 

 

Lack of a stable, alcohol and drug free living environment can be a serious obstacle to sustained abstinence. Destructive living environments can derail recovery for even highly motivated individuals.
