Our goal at U-Stick House is to develop life coping skills that will help you master the social and professional demands of society.
U-Stick House is not a rest home, rather it is a place for you to live and function in a structured, drug, and alcohol free environment.
You will enjoy certain anonymity from people who may be counter productive to your recovery process.
This house will be yours for as long as you reside here and you will need to care for it accordingly.
You are responsible for your own actions.
Willingness and cooperation are most basic requirements needed by all residents.
Residents live as a family. Accepted residents become members of the family council. The council, through a democratic process, elect a House Chairman,
Co-Chairman, and Secretary who are responsible for maintaining a structure of accepted rules, requirements and practices necessary to ensure a clean and
sober environment. The council meets once a week to discuss matters pertinent to the house operation. You will receive continuing support
U-Stick House's founder and director, Gary Wallace has been clean and sober since 1971 following the 12 Step recovery process and continues to be very active in the program today.
Mr. Wallace started in the field of sober living in 1992, as a resident manager of another sober living facility. He enjoyed the concept of sober living so much that he opened his first facility
called "Soberville" in 1994. Soberville grew to seven homes with living accommodations for up to 100 men & women. Gary later opened Sober Living Home in Rancho Palos Verdes, California
and in 2006 U-Stick House in Boise, Idaho for the serious professional who seeks a sober living environment.
U-Stick House is based on the philosophy that it is for men who are serious about recovery. At U-Stick House, we do not play games with sobriety. We follow a Zero Tolerance program.
All residents must remain clean & sober, follow the rules of the house, and maintain an active role in their 12 Step recovery.
At U-Stick House, the men are strongly encouraged to find a home group, get a sponsor and work the concepts of the 12 Steps on a daily basis. U-Stick House is not a church or religious facility.
We follow the 12 Steps as originally laid out by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1939. Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, and Al-Anon just to name a few have adopted these 12 Steps.
Each man is encouraged to find a Higher Power of his understanding.
Most important, we do not let our Brothers in Recovery die!
