Upon arrival at Blue Monarch, you can be prepared to let go of the things that have a negative effect on your mind, body, and spirit. These things include: substance abuse, smoking, romantic relationships, and illegal activities. You must be fully detoxed from all drugs and alcohol and be able to pass a drug test upon arrival at Blue Monarch. You are allowed 3-5 bags per family. Items in those bags include: business casual clothes, barn clothes, church clothes, important documents (such as a driver’s license, social security cards, and birth certificates), toiletries, towels, and wash cloths. Everyday you will learn new skills and experience new things through different classes, community service projects, devotionals, and counseling services. We focus not only on your sobriety, but also on your physical, mental, and emotional health, and hope to equip you with the tools to completely transform your life.
Children under the age of 11 are allowed to accompany their mother to reside at Blue Monarch. Each child residing at Blue Monarch experiences his/her own curriculum of recovery, and enrolls at the local elementary school or daycare during the school year. During the summer, the children participate in summer camps and field trips. Each child is taken for their annual check-up with a pediatrician, dentist, and other health professionals, if needed. If age appropriate, the child can go through counseling at school or at Blue Monarch, and we help the child transition to their new environment by providing tutors, mentors, and support throughout their stay at Blue Monarch. Each mother is coached by our Children & Family Coordinator on effective methods of parenting through curricula like Love & Logic, and provides tips and tools for reestablishing a bond with their child[ren].
