Chapter House was created by Michael and Heidi Smith. Michael and Heidi met while both working at a residential treatment center and were married in 2008. From the beginning of their relationship, they knew their combined mission as a couple was to use their unique gifts to help others recover. Through their experience both in working in a residential treatment setting as well as sober living environments, The Smith’s began to see a need for a different kind of sober living. After years of receiving feedback from affected family members and other professionals, it became clear that there was a gap in the continuum of care for a certain population of individuals. These individuals need more “hand holding” during the vulnerable transition of out of residential treatment. They need a significant amount of coaching. They need help finding a job. They need to continue with intensive therapy. They aren’t ready to just jump right back into the daily grind of life. This sparked the beginning of a vision for The Smiths to provide a sober living home that is monitored, structured, and includes intensive programming all while providing an advanced clinical outpatient component. Chapter House marks the creation of a shared dream for Michael and Heidi to help young adult men truly to learn to have freedom – in all areas of life.
