The Pillar of Community

How we open doors so you can grow your own gratitude

Welcoming and inviting, helping you feel at home

We're suitable for those who are ready to gain the depth of recovery that is beyond the intellectual. Surrounded by a community of like-minded women, we believe recovery is fully living and loving your life. Lead by our recovery coaches, our community of supportive women allows you to create your own skilled recovery practice; it's impossible to live a healthy life without others. 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. 

Our program is nearly entirely designed to create this type of environment. We're a trauma-aware sober home that's 12-step based. When needed, we also work closely with the clinicians that are helping you to heal your past and build your future.

Recovery Workshops Spark

Conversation and Friendships

Recovery isn’t as simple as using your willpower. No one chooses to become addicted but it is your responsibility to become educated about your recovery and recovery practice. We offer workshops both mornings and afternoons for residents to connect with each other and bond through reading and discussing recovery literature, the Big Book and doing 12-step work together. These workshops spur thinking and discussion about recovery topics such as accepting help and helping another, non-judgemental acceptance of others, mindfulness and recovery or living "on life's terms", to name a few.

Shared dinners spark conversation, friendships and offer good nutrition

Our shared dinners are unique among sober livings. They must be made fresh and with love. The dinner must take into consideration other's allergies and food preferences. Every night, a different house member takes a turn to plan, purchase, prepare and serve dinner and practice good communication, consideration and good nutrition. 

Gardening

Gardening is the ultimate mindfulness. Each leaf of green tells it's own story and at the same time is a vital part of our very existence.

Mindfulness

Recovery experience shows that people who practice mindfulness and meditate are more peaceful and better able to focus on their tasks. Practicing mindfulness is a skill that we practice every day. Trying to be more mindful is also learned by breaking the process into its parts of emotion, thinking and behavior. Many have thought it “wasn’t possible for them” after a couple tries. But like any skill, mindfulness takes practice. Workshops and labyrinth walking every week. 

Recreation

Recovery and community go together because getting physical is a great way to relieve stress, distract yourself from circular thinking and build healthy habits.Located one mile to the beach, we have kayaks to borrow for exploring one of the many rivers that flows through our town. There are bikes to ride on the paved trails at either Hammonasett or Chatfield Hollow Parks. They have miles and miles of trails to hike and explore. We often have a group that day trips to ski or ride to a nearby mountain. Weekend recreation is peer-driven. Having fun while sober, what an idea! Having fun and making new friends sober, what an amazing idea!

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 .
