House Rules

CSA has an environment that encourages personal transformation, mutual respect, and responsible community living.  To maintain this sense of community, we have three residential guidelines for all occupants of our housing program.

We take care of ourselves

  • We must be clean/sober for at least six months before coming to CSA, and must remain free of drugs and alcohol while residing here.
  • In addition to community service, we are involved in at least two other productive activities (work, school, job training, day treatment, twelve-step program, church/mosque/synagogue activities, etc.).
  • We continue to address our physical, emotional, social, financial and spiritual needs and goals.
  • We maintain sober and healthy lifestyles.  Smoking is limited to the designated area of the building only.
  • We attend a monthly mutual accountability session with the Program Manager.

We take care of each other

  • All of us attend the weekly community meeting.
  • Guests are welcomed anytime between 7:00 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. and are always accompanied by the host.  Bedrooms are off limits to guests.
  • We make sure no illegal activity occurs on the premises and we respect the drug, alcohol, weapon, and pornography free environment.  If there is an indication of need, we understand that our personal property is subject to inspection and inappropriate property is subject to confiscation.
  • We honor an 11:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. quiet time period Sunday through Thursdays and 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • We do not borrow/lend money or sell/buy anything from each other.
  • We do not fight and we refrain from profanity.

We take care of this place

  • We pay the agreed upon rent by the fourth day of each month.  If we do not pay on time and do not make arrangements ahead of time to pay differently, it is understood that we are moving out by the fifth day of the month.
  • We maintain orderly and clean rooms, laundry on our assigned day, clean the kitchen, dining room and bathroom after ourselves, and help out with general cleaning chores as indicated.
  • We play radios, stereos and TVs at a volume that doesn’t disturb others, and turn off all appropriate electrical equipment and lights when leaving any area.
  • We report and replace any missing property or equipment that becomes damaged by our actions or the actions of any guest that we invite.

If without other options, any resident who becomes uncooperative, unable or unwilling to follow these expectations can move to a setting that may better suit their needs.
