Hearthstone is a residential facility located in Lawrence, Kansas dedicated to helping
adult men serious about recovering from their addictions to alcohol, drugs or both.
It was founded in 1982 by a group of six men in recovery with the intention of helping
others achieve what they had accomplished. Since that time, hundreds of men
from all walks of life, all races and multiple nationalities have made Hearthstone
their home as part of their recovery journey.
Hearthstone is supported by the rent paid by its residents as well as through outside
contributions. It is a registered 501(3)(c) charitable organization.
Hearthstone can accommodate up to ten residents at a time and it is governed by
a non-resident Board of Directors drawn from the recovery community in Lawrence,
some of whom are former residents themselves. Hearthstone has no affiliation
with any other organization
but residents are required to participate in a 12-step recovery program while
in residence. Frequent meetings of the relevant organizations are held within
easy walking distance of the facility.
The current cost of residence at Hearthstone is $140 per week, split between $110
for rent and $50 for a food fund which is administered by the residents. Residents
are required to support themselves while in residence via meaningful work, but no
money is required upon admission. More requirements for living at Hearthstone
are shown on the RESPONSIBILITIES page and the procedure for applying is
outlined on the APPLICATIONS page.
