Our Five Core Values
The Mend House is a sober living community for individuals, in Knoxville, TN which empowers them to gain control over their actions, decisions and choices. The Mend House allows individuals to enjoy clean, sober and stable housing for up to 2 years while working towards independence. Evidenced- Based Practices have proven that individuals who surround themselves with other people, who are sober, will increase the likelihood of long term sobriety. The Mend House will equip these individuals with the necessary tools needed for ongoing recovery.
The Mission of The Mend House is designed specifically for individuals that are ready to mend their lives. We are a sober living community that serves individuals 18 years old and older who are making a transition back into mainstream society. The Mend House is a substance free environment that takes into account the most important variable-the individuals. We meet the individuals where they are and provide them with the appropriate tools needed for growth. Our goal for the individual is for them to develop mentally, spiritually, emotionally, financially, morally, intellectually, physically and socially.
The Mend House’s overall goal is to help individuals in recovery make a successful transition from the consequences of their past, back into the regular routine of everyday life. The potential chaos that lurks outside a recovery facility or an institution is why transitional living matters most. The early stages of recovery are typically the most fragile; when old, unhealthy habits, behaviors, and acquaintances have more power. The Mend House will empower the individual to seek additional support from the community, resources available within the community, and recovery meetings
We proudly provide opportunities for members of the community to discover the joys of life without the use of alcohol and/or drugs! We afford the individual second chances to gain the life skills they need to successfully navigate through their future. Our mission is that the people in need get the necessary help to become responsible and productive members of our community.
