We know through personal experience how essential the 12 Step Program and Community are for maintaining and sustaining a sober life! Recovery needs to be not only learned, but also earned through active participation in the recovery process. We want our residents to establish relationships with other people who are learning how to stay sober, and with those who are committed to the recovery lifestyle.
That being the case, the Colonial Park House endorses all 12 Step programs and their philosophy, and requires its residents to actively participate in the 12 Step community while lodging here.

Izzey Frey previously was the women's house manager for a sober house on the west shore of Harrisburg. She has multiple years in recovery and follows the 12 step program. Her passion about helping people stay on the right track in sobriety is bar none.
I signed up for 3 months right after my 28 day stay in a rehab. I ended up staying 9 months because I needed to stay in a stable safe place until I felt comfortable living life on my own. The curfew and the roommates were just that little bit I needed to stay clean. If I were on my own, with nothing, I would have relapsed already. Thank you for being there Colonial Park House.
My son went there and I am happy he did. My husband and I were not going to take him back, we love our son but it was just too much for us again and again. My son Jeffery thrived there, he got a job, went to meetings and is now working on over a year clean and sober.
Trying to find a women's sober house in the Harrisburg area was almost impossible. I work full time and need a suitable place where I feel comfortable, this place is it. As soon as I took a tour I knew this place was for me, nicely furnished, everything you can want in a nice sober house. Plus a live-in woman sober house manager!
