WHY SOBER LIVING AT RIGHT PATH?

Coming from a 30 -120 day residential care or in-home care, we're suitable for those who are ready to gain the depth of recovery while living life, getting back to work, spending time with friends and family all while developing a recovery routine. Surrounded by a community of like-minded women, we know recovery is exciting, full of laughter, compassion, meaning, responsibilities, and challenges. Most of all, you begin living a fully present, sober life. It's how we support you that sets us apart from other sober houses. Our philosophy is to wrap clinical, 12-step and individual coaching support around you while in a home-like community. We're offering recovery workshops, shared dinners and fun activities on the weekend.

Horses can Help

How Equine Works

We travel to the horse farm to groom and bond with the horses. We don't ride, we do what is know as "ground" work. You'll learn what the horse thinks about our visits. The horse is unencumbered by ego. He doesn't play games or power trips. He just wants to know if he can trust you.  

People often take riding lessons at their own cost at Westbrook Hunt Club.

How Share Dinners Work

Every evening we gather for a family-like dinner that one of us prepares with love and care. If you have dietary restrictions, we try to handle them like a family would and make accommodations. Because we take turns cooking every night, it reduces your food budget. Please also note that residents who have work or therapy may miss dinner, but we'll save you a plate to heat up later.

How Peer-Driven Recreation Works

Let's face it- the Connecticut coast will surprise you with how much there is to do! Every week one house member chooses our recreational activity. Some of the activities do coat a little extra, but most are free, like biking and hiking! We invite you every weekend but understand family or work constraints. We're a vacation spot and in the middle of a natural treasure. There's already too much to list, while our house members are often busy coming up with new ones.
