Our Program

Our Four-Phase Program Journey

At Fourth Dimension, we’ve designed a structured, step-by-step program to support your journey to recovery. This program is divided into four phases, each with its own set of goals and milestones to achieve as you progress towards a sober and fulfilling life.
Phase 1: Foundation
  • Duration: Minimum of 30 days.
  • Goals: Attend required meetings, secure gainful, full-time employment, adhere to daily meeting verifications, follow all policies, observe curfew, select a sponsor,  a Home Group with a commitment, and engage in weekly one-on-one sessions with staff.
  • Learning: Memorize and apply the first three Steps, including the 3rd Step prayer, and manage financial responsibilities towards the program.
Phase 2: Deepening Commitment
  • Duration: At least 90 days.
  • Requirements: Daily meeting attendance, exemplary leadership, completion of Steps 1-5 with a sponsor, memorization and application of Steps 4-6, continuation of weekly staff meetings, and financial accountability.
  • Outreach: Lead a meeting in a hospital or similar facility and understand and recite the resentment prayer.
Phase 3: Active Application
  • Engagement: Support newcomers, complete Steps 4-5, maintain attendance and curfew, work on Steps 6-9 with your sponsor, and start the amends process.
  • Development: Chair meetings, hold a service commitment, attend Detox meetings, and internalize the Acceptance paragraph from the Big Book of AA.
Phase 4: Leadership and Service
  • Leadership: Interview with the Manager’s Council, maintain meeting and curfew commitments, acquire and fulfill a Detox commitment, and regularly chair meetings.
  • Wisdom: Memorize Steps 10-11-12 and their daily application, share personal insights on the 9th and 10th Step promises, and emphasize the role of sponsorship, steps, and service in recovery.
  • Mentorship: Become an active sponsor to guide others.
Maintaining Sobriety Post-Program

 Upon completing the program, residents are encouraged to continue attending at least four meetings weekly, lead by example, maintain a 1 a.m. curfew, and stay engaged with the community through unity meetings and one-on-one meetings with sponsor. It’s vital to pass on what was freely given to us by sponsoring men and helping others in order to maintain our sobriety and live a fulfilling life. 

This journey through our Four-Phase Program is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and habits needed for a lasting recovery. Each phase builds on the last, helping you grow stronger and more resilient, ready to lead a sober life with confidence.
