Congregate Living

The red road lodge features a modified congregate living model where residents, usually persons who are in recovery from substance abuse and at times also have mental health challenges, are housed in small private hotel style rooms with a bed-sleeping area with a microwave and mini-fridge and bathroom with a toilet, shower, sink.

Residents are responsible for providing their own meals and are encouraged to use the community kitchen and dining area located on the main floor of the building.
