Celebrate Freedom: 

Call (317) 210-3733

Men's Recovery House / Sober Living Home on Indy's Northeast Side 






Celebrate Freedom is unique among Indianapolis sober houses. 1) We are PROUD to be a house where residents pay their own way rather than receiving government grants to pay for them. The quality of the residents who are roommates with you is much higher when your roommate is not here on a handout. 2) Christian faith is at our core. 3) We have in-house programming and classes that rival those of professional rehabs. Relapse Prevention class is a required activity!

Meet 2018 Graduate Kyle L.

KYLE (Pictured right) came to Celebrate Freedom with an addiction to alcohol, cocaine and other addictions. He left with a strong faith in God and a passion for helping others. See his story below.

Desperation Gave Way to Hope & Freedom for Kyle at Celebrate Freedom

“I struggled with drug addiction and alcoholism from the age of 16,” Kyle recalls. “I came to Celebrate Freedom at age 25, and I’m 27 now. I grew up going to church, but I was just there because my family was there. But even though I hadn’t been all that spiritual, in my mid 20s, I remember being out in the jeep and my only thought was to use drugs or to drink alcohol. So this day I said to God, “I don’t know what to do. I don’t feel like I’m a human being. I’m just this person who only wants to drink and use drugs. What do I do?” And I heard the voice of God tell me: “Go to bed.” I thought that was funny. I was like, well I’m not really tired, but that sounds like a good idea.” Kyle said he didn’t know how he would get past the vodka bottle or heroin at his place without using, but he would try to go to sleep. “So I went to bed and that night, for the first time in a long time, after hearing God tell me to go to bed, I was able to get through the night without using drugs. I believe He put me to sleep.”

Kyle started reading the Bible regularly. Eventually he went to jail for his drug offenses. “While in jail, I actually saw the presence of Jesus above my bed lighting up the room as I was reading the Bible. During this time, I had been thinking about what kind of rehabs could help me stay sober when I get out of jail.” So during this period, when Kyle’s mind was on obtaining sobriety but also growing his relationship with God, his mother called him and told him about Celebrate Freedom.” The fact that the call about a Christian based program came during this time in my life, I considered it a sign from God. I told God thank you, that this is the next right place for me to go.”

Kyle spent a year at Celebrate Freedom. He worked the entire 12 Step curriculum, and even led several meetings at the facility. Today he continues doing service work within the Christian and recovery communities.


You can find the freedom that Kyle did. Celebrate Freedom is a residential recovery program for men that takes a whole-person approach to addiction recovery. The medical evidence is that addiction is part biological - and so we encourage our men to work with their doctors. Addiction is also mental - emotional, and so we teach classes on managing triggers and we involve every man in one-to-one recovery coaching. The element that too many programs omit, though, is the spiritual. Addiction is also spiritual, and for this, we are unapologetically Christian. Our curriculum incorporates Biblical principles, Bible studies and church attendance. The Twelve Steps, which we use, also come from a historically-Christian foundation. We are more than just a halfway house or sober living...we are a complete Christian recovery program.

There are several residential recovery programs for men in Indy. But a few things make our transitional housing stand out among the other halfway houses.

* We are unapologetically Christian. You should expect to go to church while here and attend Bible studies here, in addition to our Relapse Prevention and 12 Step meetings.

* We treat residents with respect, not like we are drill instructors--the unfortunate approach taken by many recovery houses.

* All of our recovery house staff have multiple years in recovery, compared to the philosophy of some Indianapolis recovery houses. 

* While we are not an Indianapolis drug rehab, we have in-house classes like some of the best rehab programs. We also have trained recovery coaches.

* Probation officers and courts recognize our program and send us men regularly for addiction management of drug offenders. If necessary, we also have a staff member who can go to court and testify on your behalf.

* We're just the right size. We don't have 75 to 100 residents, making you just a number. But we don't have just 4 or 5 men, which is too small for an accountability network. We normally have 10 to 12 resident beds filled, and two on-site staff. **Our guarantee: If our staff ever have to ask you what your first name is, your program fee that week is free!**


If you find you're not ready to move into an Indianapolis halfway house, Rich Brown, the Director at Celebrate Freedom, offers services as a Recovery Coach. Certified by the State of Indiana as a Certified Recovery Specialist, he is able to meet with you on a weekly basis and discuss some recovery strategies with you. Much more affordable than an addictions counselor. Text Rich at: 317-622-6968.
