Priorit​y House

Where Responsibility For Personal Recovery Comes First

At Priority House, we are committed to providing a safe, supportive, common sense, recovery environment. The program is designed to support each resident develop personal responsibility. We offer support, but we are careful not to enable.

Staff members assist residents in establishing and developing personal priorities necessary to rebuild and reclaim their lives. 

Goals include: obtaining employment, participating in 12 step meetings, obtaining 12 step sponsorship, and developing educational goals. We offer direct and practical support and do not have cumbersome policies and directives.  

We provide 1:1 consultation designed to assist clients in identifying personal challenges and workable solutions that are simple, straightforward, and action-oriented. We have mandatory house meetings, mandatory 12 step meetings, and require participation in all house activities and responsibilities.  

We don't just talk about recovery. We roll up our sleeves and get to work side by side.

Why Priority House?

Sustainable sobriety is much easier in a safe, supportive environment. We offer support tailored to the needs of each resident. We help each resident establish and work towards personal priorities.  

The house staff members have many years of continued sobriety, and the director has years of experience in alcohol and drug abuse counseling.

The house is large, comfortable, and located in the middle of Cookeville, Tennessee. It is close to the bus stop and next to Tennessee Tech University.
