EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Standing By the door online. Our website highlights the diversity of classes we offer to our clients or anyone who wants to attend. Our goal is to assist anyone struggling with a substance abuse problem. Our program focuses on getting to the root of the problem and removing it with a proven method out lined in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Standing By the Door is a 6-month sober living program. We offer each client a variety of classes that range from Common Solution Recovery, We Do Recover, Carrying the Message, and Spiritual Growth class. Our recovery program offers each person clean sober housing, transportation services, a drop-in center, and church service. All our classes are taught by someone who has suffered from the torture of addiction and have found the solution in the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and now volunteer their time to help others seek and live in the solution.

About us

Our name comes from a poem written by Sam Shoemaker. “I Stand at the Door”

I stand by the door. I neither go too far in, nor stay too far out. The door is the most important door in the world — It is the door through which men walk when they find God. There is no use my going way inside and staying there, When so many are still outside and they, as much as I, Crave to know where the door is and all that so many ever find is only the wall where the door ought to be. They creep along the wall like blind men, with outstretched, groping hands, Feeling for a door, knowing there must be a door, yet they never find it.

So I stand by the door.
