we'll meet you where you are

safe, comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood

To us, 12-step sober living is more than safe and comfortable housing. We looked at the research and we found that successful sober living homes offer their version of the four pillars of recovery: (1) community - shared dinners, daily workshops and fun activities (2) wellness - yoga studio membership, healthy meals, spiritual practice, and participating in therapy for mental health (3) sense of purpose in work, volunteering or attending school and (4) safety practices that allow us to be a zero tolerance home that is able to return the resident to the proper level of care whenever needed. Understand that in any sober home, the most important factor for success is length of stay; the residents that were most successful stayed a minimum of six months.

If you are just coming from a 15-30 day program, much of each day may be spent building your wellness (mental, physical and spiritual health) 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.

the voice of responsibility

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 waters of recovery, 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 supportive environment that celebrates strengths! Learning to be responsible for your actions will allow you to begin to honor your dreams. You will be on your right path! 

what to expect in your day

Building Community

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.  

SOBER HOUSE WELLNESS

Wellness- Physical Exercise and Good Nutrition

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 - Mental Health

We're working closely with the area's clinicians and, now since the advent of the new era of Covid-19, we're also working long distances with mental health experts from the various rehabs that refer to us. Clinical professionals bring an important healing element for support and healing of each and every woman.

Wellness- Mental Health

Inspiration from Horses and Art 

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, healthier relationships with people can be built. 

Wellness- Spirit Mindfulness/ Meditation

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.

Find Purpose

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.

The 12-Steps

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 a reassuring contrast to the chaotic 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.
