WHAT TO BRING. WHAT TO EXPECT. INTAKE!

What to expect your first time at sober living

Entering a sober living environment for the first time can be a transformative and life-changing experience for women seeking recovery from substance use disorders. Here are some pieces of advice to consider for women who are contemplating entering Right Path House.

  1. Embrace the Opportunity for Growth: Understand that entering a sober living environment signifies a commitment to your personal growth and well-being. Embrace this opportunity as a chance to create positive change in your life and to work towards a healthier, more fulfilling future.

  2. Be Open-Minded: Approach the experience with an open mind and a willingness to learn. Recovery is a journey of self-discovery, and being receptive to new ideas, perspectives, and approaches can greatly enhance your progress and success in sobriety.

  3. Set Realistic Expectations: Understand that recovery is a process that takes time and effort. Set realistic expectations for yourself and recognize that there may be ups and downs along the way. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small, and be patient with yourself during the challenging moments.

  4. Build a Support System: Take advantage of the support and camaraderie offered in the sober living environment. Surround yourself with peers who understand what you're going through and who can offer encouragement, guidance, and empathy. Building a strong support system is crucial for maintaining sobriety and navigating the ups and downs of recovery.

  5. Stay Committed to Your Recovery: Make a commitment to yourself and your sobriety. Stay focused on your goals and priorities, and be proactive in seeking out resources and support that will help you stay on track. Remember that recovery is a daily practice, and each day sober is a victory worth celebrating.

  6. Practice Self-Care: Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Engage in activities that nourish your mind, body, and soul, such as setting healthy boundaries, exercise, meditation, journaling, and spending time in nature. Prioritizing self-care will help you stay balanced and resilient as you navigate the challenges of recovery.

  7. Be Honest and Authentic: Honesty is essential in recovery. Be honest with yourself and others about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Embrace vulnerability and authenticity as strengths, and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

  8. Stay Connected to Your Recovery Community: Stay connected to your recovery community even after you leave the sober living environment. Attend support group meetings, stay in touch with peers from rehab, the sober house, and continue to engage in activities that support your sobriety and well-being.

  9. Celebrate Your Progress: Celebrate your progress and accomplishments along the way. Recovery is a journey of growth and transformation, and each step forward is a testament to your strength and resilience. Take pride in how far you've come and the positive changes you've made in your life.

  10. Believe in Yourself: Believe in yourself and your ability to overcome challenges and achieve your goals. You are capable of living a fulfilling and meaningful life in recovery, and with determination, perseverance, and support, you can overcome any obstacle that comes your way. If you don't seek extra help.

Entering a sober living environment for the first time can be both daunting and empowering, but with the right mindset, support, and determination, it can be the first step towards a brighter and more hopeful future. Trust in yourself, trust in the process, and know that you are not alone on this journey to recovery. Come join us!

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 on our visits. The horse is unencumbered by ego. He doesn't play games or have power trips. He just wants to know if he can trust you.

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. ​
