We have a zero-tolerance policy. Any Resident who has broken his sobriety will be asked to leave immediately. Alcohol and drug tests will be administered upon arrival, and randomly from that point forward. If there is suspicion of use, a test will be given immediately by the house manager. If the test is refused it will be taken as an admission of guilt and the Resident will be asked to leave.
The tests at any point may be witnessed. If a Resident is suspected of possessing any contraband, his person and possessions may be searched. Any Resident that has knowledge of another using must report that knowledge to the house manager at once. Any Resident hiding knowledge will be complicit in the using and will also be asked to leave. See the Un-Approved Medication List for information on allowed medications.
