Recovery In Action (RIA) provides sober, safe, and permanent housing to men striving for sobriety, accountability, and independence. Our goal is to provide this housing for men recovering from substance abuse and want to grow their sobriety. In addition to a clean living environment, our focus is providing a support system and fellowship while empowering the residents to become self supporting individuals who contribute and strengthen their families as well as their community.
RIA was founded in 1998 by members of the Des Moines community who are actively involved in the recovery community and trying help even more recover from substance abuse. We currently have three houses in the Drake and Highland Park neighborhoods of Des Moines. Each houses up to 8 sober men who will pay rent, stay active in the recovery community, and provide a healthy contribution to their house.
