The BRRM program is strictly a voluntary program to which one freely chooses to submit. The BRRM reserves the right to control one’s schedule, clothing, and finances and to monitor medications, as prescribed by a doctor, in order to help achieve the goal of victory over addictive behavior.
The staff of the BRRM is here to serve the residents. The staff works together to keep the atmosphere comfortable and friendly. The purpose of establishing policies and procedures is to provide a safe and structured home environment with maximum accountability. The BRRM home is a place where staff and residents work together to meet the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs of each resident.
