Making Recovery Possible.

Our mission is to make addiction recovery possible by providing compassion and guidance in a structured, sober living atmosphere. The Nicholas House's A.R.C. Theory of Recovery is a set of coordinated principles, commitments and expectations that ensure continuity, accountability and transformation in the lives of our Residents.



Accountability is the first phase of the ARC. Our goal is to work with Residents to establish attainable Recovery Goals, and to create an environment where those goals can be met and mastered.



Responsibility is a vital principle in recovery. Our residents are required to follow through on progress toward completion of their recovery goals. This one is about walking the walk.



Community is paramount. Nobody recovers alone. Our Recovery Residences were built to support lasting unity on the path to lifelong wellness and addiction recovery. They were meant to stand together.

Women's Sober Living in Lancaster PA.

The Nicholas House is a PA sober living community where men and women seeking recovery are given the spiritual, emotional, environmental and supportive tools and opportunities to build a solid foundation for health and recovery. We offer a coordinated program for women seeking programs and resources for sober living in Lancaster PA. 

Life as a resident in our Lancaster PA women's sober living program begins with an intake interview where potential residents discuss ways to contribute to the unity of the sober living home. Once admitted, they share community living spaces, responsibilities and sober house resources under the guidance of a live-in women's house manager and a staff Program Director.
