Year 01 Operating Expenses

Iowa City Sober Living (ICSL) is a new residential program supporting women in recovery from drugs and alcohol, providing 3-6 months of support designed to decrease recidivism and increase opportunities for healing the mind, body, and spirit. ICSL will provide a safe, sober housing environment for building courage, trust, and relationships with peers.

Social Change: The establishment of a recovery residence specifically for women will help shift the commonly held definition of addiction as being a primarily male disease. The presence of a sober living home will help to engage the community with the need for public space to support recovery and raise awareness of necessary health care policy changes for sober living arrangements.
