Alpha 180 students have made a deeply personal decision to return to college because they want it.
Appropriate candidates are clinically stable, fully detoxed, and committed to long-term abstinence-based sobriety. Most incoming students have completed residential treatment. All clients must have a desire to begin or return to college, but it is not necessary to be a currently enrolled student to come to Alpha 180.
Applicants to the Sober Living Community will undergo a pre-admissions interview (in person or via telephone) and each must submit an essay outlining his/her goals in recovery and higher education. In order to maintain an atmosphere of recovery Sober Living Community applicants must have a referral from a treatment professional evidencing their personal commitment to sobriety.
