Madison Sober Living Residence.jpg

WELCOME  HOME

We sit atop Acorn Hill. Walkable to downtown Madison where there is an indie movie theater, 8 restaurants, 4 coffee shops, R.J Julia's Bookstore, Starbucks and a Stop and Shop. We're less than a mile from the Metro North train station and across the street from the Shoreline bus line. 

OUR WOMEN'S HOUSE ON THE HILL

 We designed our structured sober living on the four pillars of recovery according to the research from SAMHSA. We host in-house activities that create community, assist in setting up a hand selected program of wellness, add a safe, predictable home-life where sober life is cultured and help each woman build a sense of purpose.

Details, Details, Details

Right Path Sober House is a 6300 square foot inn in Madison, Connecticut. In town and walkable to the beach, we offer private and shared rooms with private baths and four working fireplaces. It's an elegant home with hardwood floors, curated antiques, over 60 windows, three lounge areas and a fully equipped chef's kitchen. Wrap-around clinical services and 12-step meetings are walkable, too! Originally built in 1925, it has had three perfectly executed additions. There's a tiny cottage with an art studio and garages to house the bicycles and kayaks. It has always been used as an inn, it's just a sober inn now!
