Phase II: Peer Mentorship
Residents transition from Phase I into the Silver Chip Program immediately after completing Step 12. At this point, residents are given the opportunity to become a Peer Mentor and facilitate the Recovery Dynamics classes in exchange for a stipend of $60-$90 a week.
What is Recovery Phase II?
Residents transition from Phase I into the Silver Chip Program immediately after completing Step 12. While in this phase, residents are required to pay a program fee of $75 a week, maintain employment, observe a curfew, attend at least five AA/NA meetings a week, and attend at least one weekly Silver Chip Community Meeting (comparable to Phase I Community).
What Comes Next?
Halfway Status: Silver Chip Residents in halfway status are able to take two passes a month. Pass requests are reviewed and granted by the Silver Chip teams.
Three-quarter Status: When a resident shows that they are stable (i.e. program fees are up to date, holding down a steady job, attending all required meetings, addressing outside issues, etc.), the Silver Chip team may award that resident more freedom by moving them into three-quarter status which requires that they stay on the property at least four nights per week and can only leave for 72 hours consecutively within a 7 day time period. A resident may lose his three-quarter status if all Silver Chip Program requirements and responsibilities are not met.
Silver Chip residents must work with Continuing Care (Phase II Coordinator) staff to develop a concrete “plan of action” for resolving life skills issues and integrating back into the community. Finally, it is the group’s conscience that determines whether or not they are ready to move out of the Recovery Point facility.
