Intensive Outpatient Program

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a kind of treatment service and support program used primarily to treat addiction and eating disorders. We turn to Project Courage (Young People and Addiction), Recovery Services of Connecticut (Addiction), Seaside (DBT) or Walden Behavior Health (Eating Disorder) programs to provide a small and excellent quality setting for residents to continue the work they began in rehab.

Private Practitioners for Individual Therapy

Right Path coaches assist residents in finding a therapist with whom they can resonate. Because each person is different and has different needs, we are able to closely work with over 20 therapists with different specialties. 

Family Programs

Masters level family practitioners can assist families in coming back together after the devastating effects of addiction.  

12 Step and Refuge

Living on the Connecticut coast we are blessed to have many amenities and access to fantastic beaches, several beautiful kayaking rivers, numerous hiking trails, great theatre, museums and fascinating aquariums. There's nearby volleyball, basketball and softball leagues. Each house has a fire pit with outdoor grills and access to a horse stable or a gentle river.




We are a structured, trauma-informed sober loving home that supports healing the damage addiction has left in its wake so residents can connect to sustainable recovery. According to the clinical recommendations from the referring rehab, a resident attends therapy to support their progress as a recovering person. Each resident's program is individualized according to need: we follow professional recommendations and present the names of local therapists and medical professionals for group, individual, family, CBT, DBT, neurofeedback and EMDR. We assist residents in setting appointments that follow the clinical recommendations provided by the referring party. 

We are also aligned with intensive outpatient providers, Project Courage, Turnbridge, Yale (includes the DBT program) and Recovery Services of Connecticut Intensive Outpatient Programs, and other single focus IOP services: addiction with a secondary diagnosis, eating disorders or LBGTQ recovery. We support Vivitrol or Naltrexone and will accept Suboxone when a taper is planned. We use a self-key locker system to hold medication and oversee its distribution when requested.


Addiction affects every member of a family. Being lied to and manipulated takes its toll on family members. Even though the family may not drink or touch even an aspirin, they may need recovery from the emotional and physical injuries delivered by the disease. Families may join a family relationship program or participate in therapy in their area to heal differences and rebuild their lives. 



Our focus is on creating a safe space for self-expression. Art as the medium is perfect. Reflection of the heart mixes with the creative process for unearthing hidden and surprising answers.


Whether referred to a quality intensive outpatient or individual therapist, our residents attend therapy throughout their stay with us.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and 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 and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
