Program

Sycamore House  is a sober living house for alcoholic and chemically dependent men in  recovery. We are located at 5439 Gravois Avenue, Saint Louis, Missouri  63116 in the Bevo Mill area in South St.Louis.

Men are admitted  without regard to race, religion or national origin. The only  requirements for admission are obvious need, a sincere desire to  recover, a willingness to work a Twelve Step Program, and some prospect  of success. Existing residents vote on the admission of new residential  candidates that are first approved by the admissions committee of the  Board of Directors.

Sycamore House men pay rent,  and provide their own food and household items. They are required to be  gainfully employed, perform assigned household tasks and live  responsibly with respect for each other. 

Sycamore House is not a  treatment center, but active participation in a Twelve-Step Program is  required as a vital part of the recovery program. Sponsorship,  participation in a weekly in-house twelve-step meeting and attendance at  twelve-step meetings with the local recovery community is required.  Residents are required to follow house rules related to maintaining a  clean and orderly living environment and practicing  mutual accountability regarding the recovery program. A Resident is  dismissed immediately and without question in the event of relapse. 


 The House can accommodate nine residents, plus the House Manager. Each resident has a private room, with a bed and desk.
