Why Right Path
Sober Living?

We're suitable for those who are ready to gain the depth of recovery that is sustainable while living life. Surrounded by a community of like-minded women, we believe recovery is fully living and loving your life. Our hope is that your life becomes full of laughter, compassion, meaning, responsibilities, challenges and you are able to begin living a fully present life. 



After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we believe that for many, Sober Living is the next logical step toward recovery life. For all of us who have struggled with addiction, a good sober house is necessary. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community (structure is designed to engage with on-site community/ off-site recovery community/life skill support for harmonious living,) (2) referrals to mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym or yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school with supportive consultations, and (4) re-integrating into a modified family dynamic or a safe, new home with a routine. We are not a medical facility . We welcome those with or without a treatment history who are ready to take action to ensure their long-time recovery.

We welcome women with varied treatment history, with co-occurring PTSD, depression and anxiety.

Bikes are available, free of charge. Please supply your own helmet. You can get to anywhere you need to go like the grocery, Clinton Crossing or the beach. We also can give bike riders a lift to trails.

How Share Dinners Work

Every evening we gather for a family-like dinner that one of us prepares with love and care. We ask that dishes be from whole fresh food, not pre-packaged or store-prepared.  If you have dietary restrictions, we make accommodations. We take turns cooking every night so that over all, it actually 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.

Your schedule can include gym, yoga or exercise hours, time for mental health appointments, outside 12-step meetings and a spiritual practice. It will include work, school or volunteer hours as well as in-house workshops. Your coach acts as case manager to collaborate with you to create your unique schedule. Everyone's schedule will be different.

We can complete an intake over the phone. 203-339-1191. Before you arrive, we would like to hear from you about what you hope to gain from sober living, let you know what to bring, give you an over view of an average week and our simple guidelines for harmony. We will set up your clinical plan prior to your arrival.

Experiential and other Equine Therapy

How Equine Works

We travel to the horse farm on Fridays 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.  

Lessons and trail riding are also available at cost.

Sober Living In Connecticut

How Peer-Driven Recreation Works

Let's face it- the Connecticut coast has lots of things to do! Every week one house member chooses our recreational activity. Some will carry an additional cost with them. Not everyone will be able to attend due to work constraints. There is so much to do in our area. We're a vacation spot and in the middle of a natural treasure. There's too much to list and our house members often come up with new ones.

what makes us different

  1. We insist that clients participate in therapy throughout their stay with us. We have a dedicated computer and space for telehealth or nearby highly qualified therapists/IOP/trauma specialists/neurofeedback. 

  2. We provide strong initial case management, but strive to teach self-care with weekly check-ins.

  3. We believe that work builds self-esteem. We allow for part-time work while completing an IOP (if you haven't already.)  Work is abundant is our area. 

  4. Our gentle structure is conducive to creating community. The structure of the house's program of workshops, weekend fun and shared meals lends itself to an almost immediate sense of purpose and belonging.

  5. We're available by phone for consult.

  6. We love equine ground work and invite our women to learn it every Saturday. It teaches more than natural horsemanship.

  7. We, as recovery coaches, are careful as leaders of our community to consciously emulate sober behaviors.

  8. Ride packages are available. Sober escort from the airport or to the weekly grocery store is available.

  9. If your client is without a car, our area begs for biking. We have bikes available. There are Ubers from our door and public transportation buses three houses away. 

  10. We have a dog and cat and only allow your pets, unless special approval is given, for day visits.

  11. In-house we offer 5 hours per week of 12 step workshops and /or meetings and require another 5 hours of "outside" community 12-step meetings. ZOOM meetings are acceptable on a case-by-case basis.

  12. We ask that families work with a family therapist before the client transitions into their home, the client has established ties to the recovery community there, and that a healthy family milieu is established prior to the move back. 

  13. We include a gym with pilates, kick boxing and barre classes membership.

  14. We strive to help our women establish a weekly recovery routine and have weekly "report card" review.

  15. We understand the slight fragility in your client's smile when they step out of the car to say hello for the first time. We want you to know right now that we are dedicated and excited to support them. We understand how to hold clients accountable with gentleness. We are patient with ambivalence, and that the quality of their recovery is ultimately their decision. And we never forget that most days, they just need to be listened to, and occasionally, hugged..

A Note To Families

Addiction affects the family. The family has been lied to and stolen from. If not real money or valuable things, then it was trust that was abused and time that was wasted. A new language based on crisis rather than integrity sprung up. Unspoken rules become more and more normal. For families, we offer coaching or guide families toward family therapy and recovery.
