To us, 12-step sober living is more then safe and comfortable housing. We understand the slight fragility in your smile when you step out of your car to say hello for the first time. We want you to know right now that we are dedicated and excited to support you. The rewards of connection and friendship are a natural result of our house's activities because we are a sober home that works toward forging community, helping you find purpose and create your own program of wellness. But most of all, we model the kind of dedication, compassion and self-discipline that keeps sobriety alive for the long haul. We believe that if you are on your right path, you will find your recovery life style and be able to calmly speak your truth. Learning to be responsible for your actions will allow you to begin to honor your dreams. In the principles of recovery, you will find your unique mental and physical balance, your purpose and sense of wellness. You will be on your right path! 

we'll meet you where you are

If you are just coming from a 15-30 day program, much of each day may be spent building your wellness program before heading back to work or school. If coming from a 90 day program, you may be more interested in finding work or returning to school. We'll help you come to value self-assessment and responsibility. Using your strengths, you'll become confident in exploring the world around us in healthy ways and start contributing back to the world you once avoided. In the clear headed water of recovery from people pleasing, you'll become accountable and embrace making progress every day in rebuilding your recovery life. Through our recovery coaching, in-house workshops and peer-driven recreational activities, our clients find themselves in a simple but supportive environment that celebrates your strengths!

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.  

Building Community

SOBER HOUSE WELLNESS

Recovery and wellness in mind, body and spirit is a great way to relieve stress, distract yourself from circular thinking, build healthy habits and re-orient your mind to achieve wellness every day.

We look at two ways to create physical wellness: becoming physically active through our weekend recreation and eating whole, fresh food. The rewards of connection and friendship are a natural result of many facets of our house, but especially these involving fun activities. The best part is that we take turns planning.

Wellness- Physical Exercise and Good Nutrition

We offer a transitional home that combines the spiritual trunaround that the 12 steps offers with the healing elements of clinical support. We have an excellent working relationship with clinicians.

Wellness - Mental Health

Residents often arrive with an unrealistic sense of self. For instance, feelings about themselves and others are often extreme and unregulated. With one of our four-legged friends there is a calming influence. Residents find acceptance without rationalizing. From that small start, relationships with people can be built. 

Wellness- Mental Health

Inspiration from Horses and Art 

All that we do encourages the introspection of finding yourself in the present as you work and go about your business. With practice, it is simple to be present. It eliminates the obsessive thinking that derails our recovery. When we stay mindful, we do not worry about the future or find regrets in our past to fret about. No, we are fully present and aware of how we are feeling and what we are doing. 

Recovery allows us the chance to grow again. Soul work, reclaiming your values or your moral compass becomes important for many who enter long term recovery. We offer meditation practice so you may rekindle the relationship you had with your soulful self. Addressing "soul" in terms of recovery means something different for each of us. It may mean examining your attitude toward life and deciding "how" to use the talents that you have.   

Wellness- Spirit Mindfulness/ Meditation

Right Path House 2016-1-12-20:25:47

Finding your purpose in life is critical to your recovery. Right Path provides educational and job support by approaching each person as an individual to assist them in writing a resume or refining a college application. After addiction, we believe that every person will achieve success if they don't let their disease rush them. 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. Then, residents can build and expand on their own meaningful successes.

Find Purpose

The 12-steps has recently been studied by researchers at Harvard University and found to be the most effective system of transformation when compared with therapy only. Many residents come to us spiritually empty; they have very little compass or filter for their direction in life or a working practice of their value system. They arrive friendless and leave with friends. They are aimless and unanchored. What happens is that their 12-step practice offers them purpose and community. It's structured program and meetings are reassuring contrast to the choatic life they left behind. We urge residents to attend the 12-step, Buddhist and Refuge Recovery workshops while at Right Path.

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.
