RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
we put recovery first at aspire.
We have found that clear expectations, accountability, and goal-setting are critical to successful rehabilitation for Registered Sex Offenders (RSO), drug, and alcohol addiction.
Aspire Austin residents are expected to…
Abide at all times by the court-ordered conditions of their parole or probation.
Abstain from drugs and alcohol.
Attend regular meetings. We require our residents to attend a meeting every day until they are employed or in school, then 4 meetings each week after that.
Get a sponsor and meet regularly with that sponsor. Residents must meet with their sponsors 2 times weekly until employed/in school, then once weekly after that.
Get a job as soon as possible, or continue with their education.
Comply with all house rules.
Attend house meetings.
Do their assigned chores.
OUR PHASE SYSTEM
We utilize a three-phase system to help our residents build confidence toward clean, independent living. Upon move-in, residents at Aspire Austin automatically enter our Phases Program. The goal of this program is to provide the appropriate balance of support, accountability, and freedom for residents as they progress in their recovery, with Phase 1 providing the most structure and accountability, and Phase 3, the greatest level of independence.
Residents progress through the phases by meeting the objectives of each phase, which, of course, are always superseded by parole or probation requirements. Phase objectives include measurables such as complying with all house rules, attending the required number of weekly recovery meetings, securing a job, and opening a bank account and saving $500. These objectives are often tailored to the specific needs and goals of individual residents.
Our ultimate aim is to see our residents acclimate back to real life, secure work or start school, get some money in savings, and learn to negotiate bumps in the road of life falling forward (rather than back, into old patterns and behaviors).
Aspire Austin accepts registered sex offenders who are fully committed to recovery. Individuals with GPS monitoring devices are welcome to apply.
