Location and Basic Services;
We are conveniently located near 4 College Campuses in The Champaign/ Urbana Area that can be reached by bus route or bike for further education/ Commute to work. We also have a house car that is used by the house manager to get groceries and to take housemates to doctors appointments, AA, NA or CR meetings and naturally to the hospital or a Methadone Clinic if necessary.
If you have not graduated from Highschool our staff and your housemates with higher education will be there to help you study so you can earn your GED. The same goes for if you or your loved one has literacy issues or for those who Struggle with Arithmetic.
While we do not require that you go to AA everyday we strongly encourage some form of Recovery Group and or Fraternal Order outside of the recovery house.
While some people get perturbed by meetings they will serve to help
keep you busy, build fellowship, accountability partners and ultimately further allow you to adapt to your new life as a person free from Recreational Drug use and Alcohol.. Like any sober living/ transitional living home we have one Main Rule and that is;
No Drinking and No Drugging (with the exception of your Ethically, medically Prescribed Medications). One should expect random drug tests roughly once a month, beyond that Terrapin Station will be your home while you stay with us, and you will never be asked to leave given you pay your weekly share of the rent, stay sober and are courteous to other members of the house and staff.
