The Lodge Philosophy

We at THE LODGE believe that every recovering person has a responsibility to themselves and to the community not to become or remain a burden to society.

We believe that every person in recovery needs to give back what they have gotten, and our view is that no person shall sit in a bedroom and be sedentary.

THE LODGE insists that every tenant be employed within two weeks of residence or be engaged in meaningful and structured volunteer work. We are committed to assisting residents in finding employment and or directing them to those charities that need help.

In addition, each resident of THE LODGE must have a sponsor and commit to attending AA/NA/CA meetings daily.

Every tenant of THE LODGE must comply with this philosophy or find another place to reside. It is our sincere hope and desire that all who pass through our doors goes on to a better life, one filled with promise, self gratification and love. We cannot accomplish these goals by isolating; we need people and there are so many people that need us.

We hope that THE LODGE will be the beacon that guides you to a bright future. Staffed by professionals who walk the walk, we are 100% dedicated to providing the means for men willing to do what it takes to change their lives and remain alcohol and drug free. Let us be a small part of your success.

Jim & Adrienne Tichy


Recognizing my need for a safe recovery environment, I would like to apply for residency to The Lodge at Delray Beach.

I understand that I am a tenant and that Jim Tichy is my landlord at THE LODGE.

I understand that my residency at THE LODGE is complementary to my educational needs, an education on how to live a sober life. I am completely aware that THE LODGE is dedicated solely to the educational needs of the recovering person. I am further aware that my continued residence is dependent on needing such education and my willingness to help myself and others.

Should an accident involving personal injury to myself or loss or damage of personal property occur during my residence at THE LODGE, I agree for myself, my heirs or assigns, to hold Jim Tichy free and harmless from all liability in connection therewith.

Any personal property left upon my departure from the house which is not claimed within five (5) days by me or my authorized agent shall become the property of THE LODGE.

Anyone may be subject to dismissal for willful misconduct which is defined as conduct harmful to the reputation and best interest of THE LODGE. This dismissal will be in accordance with Section 117.06 of the City of Delray Beach Ordinance 30-09 Tenant/Occupant Eviction which requires either forty-eight (48) hours notice of
eviction in writing or an alternate temporary dwelling unit for at least forty-eight (48) hours.
