Besides 12-step work, Perimeter Recovery's main emphasis is sobriety through community living. This group personifies these concepts. In these meetings, residents are held accountable for their recovery. They are also able to express area that they may be struggling with, celebrate positive changes in their lives, request changes within the community, and report rule violations. This can all be accomplished in a safe and therapeutic environment. Each community member is required to participate in this group to the best of his ability. Recovery is sometimes an uncomfortable process; the community is here to help. Sometimes that help may see to add to the discomfort. On the contrary, in the long run, being receptive to the community will help a resident's recovery immensely.
