Harmony House Description

Harmony House is a recovery house that provides men with a supportive, clean and sober living environment. Through taking responsibility and learning to live in harmony with self and others, a lasting recovery is possible. Harmony House is primarily a setting for high functioning individuals age 25 and over, although younger men who demonstrate a good maturity level will be considered.
