Love Your Life Into Action!

General Info
What's Different About Into Action? It's simple. If you've heard horror stories about sober living, we want you to know that this is the real deal. We are not and never will be a "flop house". Members must not only be serious about their sobriety to live at Action House, they must prove it through their willingness weekly to: 1. Follow house rules. 2.Maintain their sobriety at all times. Tested a minimum of once per week. Alcohol tested throughout week. 3. Have sponsor within 1 week. 4. Contacting sponsor throughout week. 5. Make regular progress on step work. 6. Hold a job (Must obtain job within 2 weeks of moving in) Our Primary Purpose: To provide a comfortable and quality sober living environment in surroundings conducive to recovery, spiritual growth, and personal development through the action of the 12 Steps, which helps the member find a power greater than themselves which helps them to live successfully as sober men. The Program Every day an alcoholic/addict goes without having a paradigm shift in his thinking/consciousness, is another day risking drinking or using again. Therefore, we require that our members regularly attend 12 step meetings, but we also feel that attending meetings without working the program is not enough to have a healthy sobriety. Therefore, we also require our house members obtain (and use) a sponsor, work the steps, hold a job, and eventually move on to sponsoring people themselves as the real medicinal affect of the 12 steps is... One alcoholic helping another.. Verified Meeting Attendance Meetings are the building blocks of a healthy recovery program. 12 Step meetings help create a network of support, a pipeline for education in working their program of action and sobriety. It also provides a safe place they can turn to. We not only require meeting attendance and proof of attendance. Service Work Ultimately, the goal is to remain sober and grow in our recovery. To do this, we must grow in our ability to be of service. First we consider members holding other members accountable as the first step towards service work. Secondly, by seeking other alcoholics to work with, being available to neighbors in need, and by keeping the house in excellent shape for those who come after us. Employment Residents are required to work. However, in addition to full or part time jobs, this work may take the form of schooling, additional meetings, additional church activities/commitments, and volunteer work. Obtain and Use a Sponsor Our residents agree to obtain a sponsor within 10 days. The sponsor sign an Intent to Sponsor form in which the sponsor agrees to take them through the steps in 60 days and that Action House may check in with the sponsor to verify that the resident is calling daily, accomplishing homework, and following directions.  Phase and Points Based Living We have a phase and points system in which everything is based on the philosophy that individual action = reward. Phasing up is based on completing the 12 Steps, which leads to more entitled house privileges (and respect). Whereas the points system is based on providing anyone, mostly regardless of phase, a method to earn points for healthy actions and spend them on one time rewards (ranging from weekly fee discounts to curfew extensions.) Accountability This is the probably Into Action's biggest difference. We actually expect and verify regularly that our men are doing what they signed up for, which is progressing in their program of sobriety and daily life.

All I have to say is that if your tired of doing the same old thing and are looking for a place that will actually help you then this is the sober living house you should check out. The house in okc is full of great guys who only want to see you succeed and will help however possible. There is no telling where I would be today if it wasn't for this house.

This (I'm at the Edmond location) has been the perfect place for me to get back to living right without needing drugs or alcohol. The location is perfect even if you are not driving (like myself). The people I have been living with care about making improvements in their lives and in mine. I love the stability and the accountability that this house offers, as those are the 2 things I was lacking in other sober living environments. I highly recommend this place!

It’s place has completely given me a new start on life. When i came into the house i was less then a week sober, today i sit here with over two months. The guys in the house are very supportive and take recovery very seriously. If you want to turn your life around and put in some work this is the place for you!

The house is impressively run. It's clean and well-structured. It is obvious they care whether their residents succeed in sobriety or not. There is a reward system which incentivizes progress towards living a sober life and other specific goals which the resident makes on his own. The owner is very good about listening to concerns about the house and remedying any problem, including purchasing things for the house to make it more comfortable. I highly recommend considering this house if you are serious about "living sober." Don't bother if you intend to just go through the motions for a while until the heat is off of you so you can go back to drinking or using.

If you're looking for the BEST sober living house in OKC, look no further. The owner, Brian, is very serious about staying sober while living a good life. The house is also close to a bunch of businesses.

I moved into the newest residence opened by Into Action in Edmond 7 days ago. I was the second person in the new house and within days, convinced one of my pre-sober days friend to apply for residency and he has moved in since then. More importantly though, I am continually interested in how the organization is managed, as well as the program offered. In a nutshell, I am a REALLY happy guy and feel blessed to have been offered this opportunity. Though it is significantly different than my previous months in another sober living environment, I truly feel this move was to my advantage. And, just saying, if you are a “numbers” person, you will probably enjoy raking in the “points” for previous and current life activities, as I have. I used them to lower my rent, the first full week there. Plus, I started the savings program offered by Brian S. and the crazy guy, at this time, will match 40% of my savings. No kidding.

Moved into the house a few days ago. House is very comfortable and clean. Owner is very helpful and involved, roommates are great guys and easy to get along with. The points/phase system here is a good way to help you stay sober as well as keeping you involved with the house and AA. If you are willing to put in the effort to actually WORK the house program as well as the program of Alcoholics Anonymous then this program will definitely work for you.

In to action is a very well structured clean inviroment. It teaches you how to be accountable and how to hold others accountable. More importantly it is set up and main purpose is to keep you sober by working the 12 steps of AA. It has helped me an enormous amount and for that I am extremely grateful. So I highley recommend this to anyone that is ready to be sober and accountable.

Its a great place to learn how to have a successful life without the use of mind altering substances. I have been here a little over a month and have learned so much and still have a ways to go but I know that the guys here will help me every step of the way as long as they see me trying. This place is close to a great meeting, lots of job opportunities, and is well structured.

I've lived at Into Action Sober Living (a.k.a. Action House) for 2 months now, and can tell you that if you're looking for REAL sober living, then this is it! But if you're not serious about your sobriety, then take my advice and don't bother, because it's not just a place to live. It's a place to grow in your recovery from alcoholism / drug addiction. And believe me, sitting on your bum isn't an option here :)
