Cell phone policy:
Because you are building your recovery plan to live and succeed in the real world, Greener Pastures does not take away your cell phone. In fact, several facets of our recovery program include tech and helpful apps that we hope you will continue to use after you graduate.
That said, we view cell phones as a tool, not as an escape, and our cell phone policy reflects that. We ask that phones are turned off and remain in your room during the program day. You are welcome to use your cell phone after the evening wrap-up and at your leisure on Saturday afternoons.
While listening to music or watching a video, please be courteous of your housemates and use your headphones. When speaking on the phone, please find a private area so that others are not involved in your private conversation.
Greener Pastures LLC is not responsible for lost, stolen, broken or lost equipment and belongings.
