No program is a quick fix. An addicted person typically spends years in active addiction. Changing one’s way of life takes time. Our multi-phased program starts residents off with increased structure and accountability. The levels of structure and accountability begin to decrease as residents take responsibility for their lives and ownership of their decisions.


Addison House is a peer-to-peer recovery community committed to 12 step recovery. Our program is based on the principles found in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Utilizing a tiered step-down model, as residents gradually take more responsibility for their own recovery, the services and structure of Addison House gradually relax throughout their time here.

Located right outside of downtown Delray Beach.

Our centrally located homes are all within walking distance of several 12 Step Meetings, public transportation, supermarkets, and the beach.
