Services We Offer
Each and every resident will be assessed by our managing director as they come move in. A specific program catered to each individual will be implemented to aid he/she to reach their goals.
We at Gratis Living believe that if you have a great support group you will succeed and move past your addiction and get your life back. Gratis Living is associated with with a AA/NA groups in the Nashville area. We can and will provide you with groups to be a part of. The bigger circle of friends you have in the program, the better your chances.
As a resident of Gratis Living, our number priority is ensuring every resident is safe at all times. So we have implemented drug testing(at resident’s own cost). If a resident is late for curfew without prior approval he/she will be tested. If resident exhibits unsual behavior he/she will be drug tested. If resident looks or smells like he or she has been drinking, they will be asked to take a breathalyzer. At the manager’s discretion, he can take random drug testing without any warning. Each resident that has been asked to submit a urine sample or breathalyzer has exactly one hour to do so or it will considered a positive test and resident will have to vacate premises. If a resident or residents fails a drug test or breathalyzer he or she has an hour to pack all bags and leave the premises. He or she may choose to return after 3 days if they show that they are attending aa/na meetings and have refrained from using drugs/alcohol. Resident will have to pay another move in fee of $380 before they can move back in. We at Gratis Living take drug testing seriously because its the only way we can ensure a safe, calm, clean environment and help others stay sober.
Every Wednesday and Sunday of the week, we hold what we call a feelings check in. Four feelings we share are: Emotional, Mental, Spiritual and Physical. All residents are required and it is mandatory for everyone to be present at the community meetings. Only time you are excused is if you are working late and you have to let your manager know 24 hours in advance that you will be at work. Each resident that is at work must bring a clock out receipt or schedule from their work. After the feelings checks discussions about house needs, house issues etc will be discussed at the meeting.
