ABOUT VAN’S HOUSE
Van’s House is a sober living community in Enid, Okla., about 90 minutes north of Oklahoma City, for “motivated adult men and women” seeking to recover from addiction to drugs or alcohol. All applicants must first go through an interview process either in person or over the phone to be accepted.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The mission at Van’s House is very clear: “to help others do what they cannot do for themselves.” According to its website, programming is “based on the idea of a ‘spiritual therapeutic community’ which uses a democratic group process to empower residents to take an active role in their recovery from addiction.”
The curriculum consists of mandatory daily and nightly A.A. meetings for both men and women as well as gender-separate ones each Saturday morning. Program participants must also find a sponsor to help them work the steps.
There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Participants of Van’s House live in either the men’s or women’s home. Both have kitchens as well as common spaces with couches.
House meetings take place daily at 6:25 p.m.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
An anonymous alum credited the program with being “Consistent.” They were also “very satisfied,” awarding five stars for areas of family inclusion, the staff’s level of training and experience, and treatment effectiveness, amongst others.
Van’s House also has an average rating of 3.7 stars from seven Google reviewers as of this writing, one of whom called it an “Amazing place with amazing people.” “There is many years of sobriety that attend meetings and the residents seem to change their lives,” commented another.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Awarding Van’s House an overall score of five stars, L.F.M. indicated that they’d recommend the program to others and that their loved one improved in attitude, self-awareness, confidence, communication, social involvement, and more.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Filling in on some of the gaps, a program volunteer told Best-rehabs.com: “The two CDAC’s who own Van’s House have 50 years of experience. They are strict but fair… Ours is year long commitment for clients.”
