At all of The Ohio House properties, we provide structure to our residents. The structure is designed and programed to enhance the the resident’s physical, mental and spiritual growth. The structure of The Ohio House is built on three foundational principles.
The Ohio House believes that a solid routine ensures a grounded foundation for our residents. We expect all of our residents to adhere to a strict set of daily activities.
Each resident can and will follow some simple rules. Each residence is assigned a House Manager to ensure a safe and structured environment for the recovering. Rules are in place as a vessel to a sober lifestyle.

Personal Empowerment Coach
Thought the years of working with my Coaching clients, I developed a program called Spiritual Kindergarten which is an individualized experience in helping my clients to not only find themselves, their passions, their goals – but also to achieve the life they desire. I create and guide them with a roadmap to personal empowerment. I use many tools at my disposal in teaching my students. Games, discussion, field trips, hypnosis, meditation, books, movies, their own thoughts, other people… things that people can relate to. The road to finding their own personal power again never looks the same as anyone else’s road… but finding the starting point is pretty easy for me.
My clients come to me confused by the circumstances of their life – they say things like “This was not supposed to happen”… and most often I speak to them about the same circumstances later on and they tell me, “I’m so glad all of that happened”, because we find purpose and reason in the seemingly problematic circumstances.
Rae has been a lover of movement and music from her first breath. Having a conviction early on to follow her passion, not knowing at the time where it would lead. When Rachael discovered yoga, she felt as if she had come home for the first time. Yoga served as a vessel of healing, spiritual connection, radical expression and endless inspiration for Rae. It was then she knew her purpose was to provide the space for others to experience this transformation. Read more on her website…
My name is Robby Morse, boxing coach of The Ohio House boxing team. I got sober 11 years ago in Texas and moved to California shortly after. I spent the first 6 years of my sobriety competing in boxing tournaments held throughout California. After boxing I went on to get a bachelors degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on training athletes. For some time after graduation I had a dream of starting an amateur boxing team, I proposed the idea to Brandon and he loved it, agreeing to help make my boxing team dream a reality. My vision with the Ohio House boxing team is to coach willing men to train, overcome fear, and even compete together, sharing with each other some awesome experiences in sobriety.
