Sober Living at
Endorphin Power Company
Four Pillars Program Overview:
EPC’s Four Pillars Program provides our residents with a sober living environment, where they develop new habits and gain skills with the support of EPC staff and their fellow residents. EPC’s residents may choose to work on other recovery programs concurrently, but our residents’ first priority is to the Four Pillars. Recovery is not merely about giving up unhealthy habits; it is about developing new lifestyles, new friends, and new interests. At EPC, you will learn skills and acquire useful tools to help you gain control of your internal and external lives. You will become a productive citizen and community member who does more than just stay clean and sober.
What are the Four Pillars?
At EPC we assume residents willingly participate in our Four Pillars Program because they have chosen to be here. Residents should recognize that living at EPC presents a unique opportunity to live in an environment that actively supports their efforts to develop good lifelong habits. Spending a minimum of 30 minutes a day on each pillar amounts to 2–hour per day investment towards a healthier, more meaningful life. In addition, some pillars can be accomplished simultaneously. This leaves plenty of time for work, chores, other meetings, recreation, and sleep. For a description of each of the Four Pillars and examples, click here.
EPC fills our rooms from our waiting list. However, we require more than just a completed application. Due to the nature of addiction, we ask applicants to call weekly to check on their application. This helps to show continued interest and commitment to our sober living program. This also moves applicants up the waiting list. Once a room becomes available, we let the applicant know and will schedule a tour.
During the in-person tour you will get to see the resident room, community rooms, community kitchen, gardens, and other resident only areas to get an idea of daily life at EPC. We also provide you with a copy of the current EPC handbook. We ask that you take some time, at least 24 hours, and decide if EPC is truly the right place for you. If so, we ask that you contact us to schedule service work and your vote-in. If you have any questions, you are free to ask them at any time during this process.
Service work can be scheduled anytime from a week before to the day of your vote-in. It consists of 3-4 hours of volunteering here at the EPC campus.
Vote-ins happen at the beginning of our Wednesday night house meetings. Applicants must have completed all previous steps before they can attend the vote-in. We ask you to be here 1-2 hours before the start of the meeting so you can meet and talk to as many of the current residents as possible.
