Why Sober Living?
Living sober exposes the challenge between the "book learning" you're absorbing in rehab and the wisdom to be gained in actually living sober. It's not a sign of weakness to use the services and the fellowship of a supportive sober living home; it's a sign of healthy respect for the disease of addiction. Are you ready to start to make a life-affirming stake in your recovery?
Life's a Journey,
Find Your Right Path
More than our name, Right Path is our inspiration. We believe that everyone needs to find and follow their own right path. And if you ever wonder whether you're on your right path, you'll find that you are making small but mighty choices that positively impact your life. After rehab or extended care, we offer you a chance to place one foot in front of the other, find your balance and health in recovery as you meet your life. We support you to take the chance to continue to grow so you can do just that - make your own right path! We're suitable for those who are ready to practice their recovery beyond the intellectual, so if you're coming to stay with us, get ready. We expect you to create a new life style before the old one tries to come back. You'll put your recovery into action by living, working, having fun and staying sober within a safe sober network. We know it doesn't happen overnight.
A Note To Families
We know you've probably heard this before but we're going to go ahead anyway just in case. Addiction affects the family. The family has been lied to and stolen from, if not real money or valuable things that were pawned, than it was time that was wasted. A new language sprung up between you and your family members. There are unspoken rules that may need to be healed and slowly dissolved. We insist that families obtain therapy as families so they may also heal.
Note To Our
Thank you for considering Right Path House as a resource for your client entering the continuing care phase. We deeply appreciate your work and will work hard to earn your trust as a valuable resource for sober living.
Who we accept
We accept women who have completed a 30, 60, 90 or 120 day program and are ready to take action. They may have occasion doubts about their addiction and whether they want to pursue recovery. Multiple history of treatment is our specialty. They must be open to 12-step program of some kind. They must willing to continue therapy.
How we admit women
We schedule a brief interview about their goals and needs and answer their questions about us. We ask for a list of medications and secondary diagnosis. We accept most co-occurring women. If accepted, we ask for a non-refundable deposit of $250 and schedule the arrival date, upcoming intakes or first appointments.
Our follow-up to you
We know that we love to hear how our clients are doing post-sober living, so of course, we want to keep you informed of their progress.
What makes us different
Kate and I are here to work with you every step of the way. Here's a list of what we do differently when comparing us to other sober living houses.
We insist that clients participate in therapy throughout their stay with us. We have a dedicated computer and space for telehealth.
We include art and craft experiences.
We provide initial case management, but strive to teach them self-care.
We believe that our clients have to get out there to work part-time and complete an IOP if they haven't already. Work is abundant is our area.
Our gentle structure is conducive to creating community. The structure of the house lends itself to an almost immediate sense of purpose and belonging.
We as recovery coaches are careful as leaders of our community to consciously emulate sober behaviors.
Sober escort from the airport or to the weekly grocery store is available.
If your client is without a car, our area begs for biking. (we have bikes available) and also there are Ubers and public transportation available.
We have a dog and cat, but do not allow outside animals except for day visits to the house.
In-house we offer 12 hours per week of 12 step workshops and /or meetings and require another 5 hours of "outside" community 12-step meetings. During COVID, ZOOM meetings are acceptable
We insist that families obtain a family therapist before the client transitions into their home and that family is established prior to the move back.
We include a yoga studio membership.
We have weekly "report card" review with prizes (list of 27 behaviors that outlines the discipline needed for a recovery routine).
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 allow dignity. We understand the quality of their recovery is ultimately their decision. Some days, they just need to be loved.
I am an owner-operator, so when you call, you'll get me, Lisa Ferguson. Please call my cell 203-339-1191 or my office 860-552-4847 with any admission questions.
A note from the founder, Lisa Ferguson
"Can you learn to trust enough to let yourself be known by a reliable and honest coach, sponsor and therapist? We're suitable for those who are ready to gain the depth of recovery beyond rehab and beyond the intellectual-our hope is that you have an awakening of some kind and pursue your dreams. We believe recovery is fully living it as your best self. But to do that it takes focus and time. We hope that we open your mind and find that you can learn what you need to know to become competent and confident to follow your dreams..."
My story starts from being an abused child, with eleven broken bones, parents arrested and literally no where to turn to putting myself through college and finally finding the love of my life and raising three children. Only sustained recovery and changing the way I thought about life could help me to do that!
