True North Recovery is owned and operated by women in recovery to provide sober housing recovery services to women in early sobriety who are looking for resources to build a long term recovery program.
We have worked to bring our combined expertise and experience with the disease of addiction, drug and alcohol counseling, mental health disorders, and behavior modification, as well as our personal success in recovery to sober housing focused specifically for women.
The residents in our program focus on building a 12 step based recovery program, a daily spiritual practice, mindfulness and meditation, balance, self care, relationships/codependency, self- sufficiency, and being useful to others. Over the past 7 years, we have helped more than 200 women find long term recovery.
Owner/Operator: Ann Costello-Junge
I attended treatment for alcoholism in April of 2013. Following treatment, I followed the
recommendations of my treatment team and moved into one of the Come Straight Home sober
houses. The ability to enter sober living, instead of returning home after a 30 day inpatient stay,
along with the tools and support I received as a resident, enabled me to build a long term
Aurora House opened in December of 2015. In addition to requiring residents to work a 12th step program, we watched the situations that would derail a woman’s recovery and started building accountability and activities to help women stay sober through the most difficult times. Today, in addition to traditional sober house accountability, we work with residents on:
Building a daily spiritual program
Balance- i.e. balancing recovery with life and relationships, building a routine to help them thrive, time management tools, etc.
Self care and meditation
Building a community of sober women
Nova House- Post Sober Housing
Nova House supports women who are ready to move on from the accountability and structure of sober living but want to continue to live with women in recovery. You must be in recovery to be eligible to live at the Nova House but there are no other rules or requirements.
Both houses regularly host 12 step meetings and Big Book studies along with a Codependency Study group and a rotating study group that works through books like Warrior Goddess Training, Judgement Detox, Drop the Rock and other curriculums that focus on women in recovery..
