The majority of Beach House residents live in structured residential homes in the Sunset Beach area of Brunswick County. Pictured above is our beautiful Riverview center overlooking the Calabash River and within steps of local docks and waterfront dining. This is a safe haven for those in early recovery.
We are a nondenominational recovery ministry for men in addiction, not a drug rehab, halfway house or health clinic. We are licensed, certified and insured as a recovery residence provider. As part of a Christian charity, we have no affiliation with the court system and do not shelter violent offenders or those legally compelled to receive treatment. We are not qualified or accredited to diagnose, treat or cure any illness. Our commitment is to support, enrich and improve our community through religious and charitable initiatives.
Beach House Recovery offers flexible sober living options:
(1) Our onsite PHASE program is a blend of traditional 12-step action, biblical study and spiritual discipline in a supervised group setting. It’s a safe landing for the crucial period between inpatient treatment and the pitfalls of traditional sober living. We attend meetings, worship and study together to build a healthy foundation for early sobriety. Our curriculum is centered on what we believe is missing from conventional recovery methods, a strong emphasis on practical application. Our pastors endorse the twelve steps as the best means of applying biblical principles to the illness of addiction.
Residents focus specifically on spiritual living and progress through early recovery at their own pace in tight-knit recovery atmosphere. We will explore in detail why “faith without works is dead” and how recovery strategies that fail to properly balance action with theory contribute to chronic relapse. Phase was designed as an alternative to recovery models which emphasize isolation from society and practice separation from the established recovery community. Phase 1 has a 4 week, 8 week or 12 week plan to accommodate individual needs and budget. Costs vary based on availability and length of stay.
(2) Individuals who successfully complete phase 1 or another structured treatment program are eligible to transition into nearby Phase 2 community housing. This is a chance to learn integrity, life skills and personal responsibility through volunteer work or employment in the surrounding community. Access to our community center and daily transportation to and from recovery functions is included for $125 per week. These residents are held to a high standard of conduct and requirements include extensive meeting attendance and active participation in the recovery community. Individuals who achieve 6 months of sobriety are eligible to enter phase 3 for the remainder of their stay. Successful completion of all three stages will take approximately 12 months.
(3) Our offsite sober living homes are an economical approach designed to support those seeking more independence in recovery. Residential homes are monitored by staff, providing structure and direction without the expense of extra services. Our homes are inspected and meet guidelines for official certification by the Recovery Residences of the Carolinas (RROC). An initial payment of $220 is due upon admission, followed by $110 per week beginning week 2.
Offsite recovery homes are single family residences designed for anyone seeking more flexibility in their personal recovery. Every individual must be self-supporting and independently provide for their own basic needs including personal hygiene, clothing, meals and employment. We do not directly employ residents, provide transportation or guarantee anyone a job, although employment assistance is one focus of our ministry. Our program is insured by a specialized sober living policy which meets the strict quality standards of the National Alliance for Recovery Residences.
Our goal from the start was to assist anyone in need of help with no regard for ability to pay. We often apply donations, arrange payment agreements, or offer our resources at a loss. It is our commitment to operate from a place of financial transparency, offering fair and affordable program costs under ethical arrangements. We do not offer “no cost” services in exchange for unpaid employment after admission.
If addiction has taken a heavy toll on your life, we extend this opportunity to partner with us through our rotating monthly scholarship fund. Throughout February you can support our Blaine Taylor Memorial Scholarship on the “submit payment” tab conveniently located below.

Beach House would like to recognize Wayne McKeithan for generously providing scholarships for men in both December and again in January.
An additional group of men have received scholarships for February in memory of Blaine Taylor, thank you Drew and Nola Taylor for your generosity.
