REALITY CHECK… –You will end up sharing your bedroom with up to three other women at any given time – this can be uncomfortable at times. –While you are in the program you are not to be in relationship with anyone (this means boyfriends or fiances). We encourage restoration of marriage if you are currently legally married. –For thefirst 30 days of the program, there’s no contact allowed with anyone outside the home. This includes family, friends and mentors – no contact means no visits, calls or writing letters. Writing letters will be encouraged after this cooling off period. –When you are allowed visitors and phone calls, you are only able to call your immediate family or approved mentors – No boyfriends, fiances, friends or non-family members. –Any of the things that interfere with our home schedule must be taken care of before you can come into the home. –This is not a medical facility.
