EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Standing By The Door online. Our website highlights the diversity of programs and classes available to all that are seeking recovery. Our goal is to assist men & women to address their causes and conditions by offering a proven, time-tested method of recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction.

We focus on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Annonymous in a Common Solution Recovery Program. We use a process of Way Out Workshops, Spiritual Skills Classes, Peer Counceling, Transitional Housing, Job and Life Skills Procurement/Development, along with Veteran’s assistance. Please feel free to read more about SBTD’s recovery outreach program on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

If you really want to solve an addiction problem a dedication to a longer-term addiction recovery home gives you the best chance to succeed by an overwhelming statistical margin. Think about it. Where do you think you’d have the best chance at staying sober?

A — By keeping the same circle of drug-using friends and staying at home. Or,

B — By living in an addiction recovery home with a support system of people that are all trying to achieve the same goal?

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.
