Guest House & Recuperative Care

Room In The Inn’s Guest House is often a first step towards recovery. Created in 1991 at the request of Nashville’s judges, our Guest House provides an alternative to jail for public intoxication. In addition, we coordinate with hospitals and other care providers to provide recuperative care, which includes respite for medically fragile homeless individuals recovering from recent hospitalization, illness, or injury.

For more information on referrals to the Guest House, please download the "Recuperative Care Referral Form."

The integrated model for care at the Guest House includes:

An alternative to jail for the publicly intoxicated

A safe space for recuperation from acute or chronic medical conditions

Support coordination and assistance with permanent housing

Access to mental health services

Alcohol and drug addiction recovery classes and services

Community living and support

Benefits to the community include:

Recognition of addiction as a medical and social issue that can be treated, rather than criminal one.

Fewer ER visits and emergency response calls

Fewer and shortened hospital stays

People are equipped with life skills
