Experiential and other Equine Therapy

Structure and Safety

Healing : Our Absolute Value

Specializing in post-rehab sober living for women - a population who has a 65% chance of trauma in their history, we're suitable for those who are ready to gain the depth of recovery that goes beyond the intellectual. We support you as you learn and practice staying sober and continue to heal yourselves. When needed, we'll help you connect with a quality trauma-specialist. You see, to us, sober living is more than safe and comfortable housing, it is continuing to examine our lives, take responsibility for our recovery, and heal what lead you to use drugs and alcohol as your solution to your problems in the first place.

Sober Living Is Joining Hands_edited.jpg
A gently structured community
that is life-affirming

The people in your community should model the critical dedication, self-assessment, compassion and patience necessary to maintain longer term recovery. With a recovery coach as leader, having a community of supportive women allows you to create your own skilled recovery practice, get back to work and find your tribe of like-minded people.

For someone working or in IOP with scheduling conflicts, they may only attend a limited number of meetings. We offer:

 

7:30 Morning Meeting

9:00 Work or IOP (this varies widely)

3:00 Step Study Hall

4:00 NA or AA related reading and discussion

Friday Nights are Art and Crafts or Game Night

A plan of wellness that requires action.

Wellness encompasses mental, physical and spiritual health. At Right Path, it starts with the 12-steps.The 12-steps offer community and a spiritual practice. Continuing to examine inner resources, we ask that house members continue with their recommended mental health appointments. Covid-19 has introduced us to the extensive use of telehealth services, so accessing services is simple. Physical health is also critical to the well being of our recovery and a yoga studio membership is included, along with bikes and kayaks for your use. Weekends allow for the group to select a leader to coordinate fun activities.

Find your purpose.
Start small. 

Finding your purpose in life is critical to your recovery. Addiction is always in a hurry, but our coaches can point to the pit-falls of rushing into too much work or school. Coaches can help you slow down and allow for each step of the recovery process to take hold.  After addiction, we believe that most will achieve success if they don't let their disease rush them but it is still important to take action. When you arrive, if you haven't completed an IOP, we expect you to do so. After that, we expect you to obtain a job and work up to 30 works per week. As always, ask and we're happy to assist you in your search. Our house has computers for your therapy and job hunting.

Spirit, the voice inside you that says, "do the next right thing."

We value self-assessment and responsibility. After spending time talking about and contemplating your spiritual self while working the 12-steps, you may find yourself more honest in your daily life and even contributing back to the world you once avoided. In the clear headed waters of recovery, you may become more and more spiritual, more willing to be accountable for your actions. Find ways to contribute in a positive way to your community and our gently structured, well-organized household. It is when we are away from our value system in active addiction, that we lose ourselves. We are becoming less anxious and afraid, more courageous and purpose driven as we define and live true to ourselves, one day at a time away from drugs and alcohol.

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 .
