What happens if I relapse?

A housemate who is found to have relapsed is discharged from the house immediately. They can be readmitted into the house once they have proof of sobriety (24 hours for alcohol 72 hours for all other drugs) and have paid the $200 re-admission fee. Housemates found to have chronic relapses will no longer be allowed to readmit into the house without first completing treatment.
