ABOUT COLONIAL PARK HOUSE

OUR PHILOSOPHY

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 Sober Living House endorses all 12 Step programs and their philosophies, and requires its residents to actively participate in the 12 Step community while lodging here.

 

 

WHAT WE OFFER

The primary purpose of Colonial Park House is to provide a safe and supportive home-like environment for its residents. We offer a place where men and women can safely leave the isolation of chemical dependency and begin anew with other residents who are seeking a more meaningful and fulfilling life. With 18 beds in 6 residences, Colonial Park House creates a beginning foundation for experiencing the community life of recovery. Our lodgings are tastefully decorated and fully-furnished. We provide residents with semi-private bedrooms, linens, towels, appliances, utensils and all other basic needs for comfortable living, including flat screen TV’s, WI-FI access and free washer and dryers. Our men's sober living apartments and our totally separate women's sober living home are conveniently located near large suburban malls and many stores, eateries, and theaters. Harrisburg has a lower unemployment rate than the national average providing more opportunities for employment.
