Thank you for thinking of us. We look forward to working with you and earning your trust.

Thank you for considering Right Path House as a resource for your client or loved one entering the continuing care phase. We deeply appreciate your work and will work hard to earn your trust as we become a valuable resource in sober living. 

OUR IDEAL CLIENT

We accept women who have completed a 30, 60, 90 or 120 day program and are ready to take action. They may have occasion doubts about their addiction and whether they want to pursue recovery, have multiple history of treatment and are either open or ambivalent to 12-step programs. They are depressed, have PTSD, anxiety and are willing to continue therapy. Depending on clinical hours every week, they are willing to work or go to school full/part-time ( this varies during their stay ). We accept women who are not ready to launch as well as seasoned professional women. This area offers jobs of all types at various levels.  

OUR FOLLOW-UP TO YOU

We know that we love to hear how our clients are doing post-sober living, so of course, if you are open, we want to keep you informed of their progress.

INTAKE

We schedule an intake over the phone  ( 203-339-1191). In accordance to your direction, we can start setting up the clinical plan prior to arrival. We connect clients to professional services with whom we have excellent working relationships. Before your client or loved one arrives, we would like to hear from them about what they hope to gain from sober living, let them know what to bring, give them an over view of an average week and our simple guidelines for harmony.

Alysa Ratsche
  1. In-house coaching

  2. Equine Experience

  3. Gym, Bikes, beaches and hikes

  4. Clients participate in therapy throughout their stay with us. We have a dedicated computer and space for telehealth or nearby highly qualified therapists/IOP/trauma specialists/neurofeedback. 

  5. We provide strong initial case management, but strive to teach self-care in small increments.

  6. We believe that work builds self-esteem. We allow for either no work or part-time work while completing an IOP (if you haven't already.)  Work is abundant is our area. 

  7. Our gentle structure is conducive to creating community. The structure of the house's program of workshops, weekend fun and shared meals lends itself to an almost immediate sense of purpose and belonging.

  8. We're available by phone for consult.

  9. We love equine ground work and invite our women to learn it every Saturday. Equine is more than natural horsemanship.

  10. We, as recovery coaches, are careful as leaders of our community to consciously emulate sober behaviors.

  11. Ride packages are available. Sober escort from the airport or to the weekly grocery store is available.

  12. If your client is without a car, our area begs for biking. We have bikes available. There are Ubers from our door and public transportation buses three houses away. 

  13. We have a dog and cat and only allow your pets, unless special approval is given, for day visits.

  14. In-house we offer 5 hours per week of 12 step workshops and /or meetings and require another 5 hours of "outside" community 12-step meetings. ZOOM meetings are acceptable on a case-by-case basis.

  15. We ask that families work with a family therapist before the client transitions into their home, the client has established ties to the recovery community there, and that a healthy family milieu is established prior to the move back. 

  16. We include a gym with pilates, kick boxing and barre classes membership.

  17. We strive to help our women establish a weekly recovery routine and have weekly "report card" review.

  18. We understand the slight fragility in your client's smile when they step out of the car to say hello for the first time. We want you to know right now that we are dedicated and excited to support them. We understand how to hold clients accountable with gentleness. We are patient with ambivalence, and that the quality of their recovery is ultimately their decision. And we never forget that most days, they just need to be listened to, and occasionally, hugged..

A note from the founder, Lisa Ferguson

In 2010, Both my daughter and her cousin were active in their addiction. Since I began my recovery in 1988 after a colorful and chaotic life, I could help my daughter find the resources she might need to sustain her recovery. My niece however was in Florida and she continued to struggle. I started Right Path for her and attempted to fly MacKenzie, my niece up here for our version of sober living. Much to my sorrow, MacKenzie never made it here.

 

So many women have trauma that has never been treated. When the women around me sought treatment for their trauma, they stayed sober more often than not. They sought to build themselves up instead of beat themselves down. Then, they could gather their recovery capital and find a more lasting recovery.

SAMSHA's research says there has to be four parts of living that support and sustain recovery.

  1. HOME - needs to be relatively predictable and supportive of the sober lifestyle and sober mind. 

  2. WELLNESS - mind, body and soul. Gym, clinical, spiritual.

  3. SENSE OF PURPOSE- through work or volunteering. Helping others. Raising children.

  4. COMMUNITY- build the network you will really need.

From that research, my program evolved. Once she walks through my door, our team does everything they can to set the stage for her recovery. If we are not the one to help her, we'll help her get to where she can be helped. We set the example everyday. We listen with open hearts and speak with mindfulness.

My upbringing was severe and it ended at age 14 after my father died of his addiction and my mother's addiction lead her to run away. Alone, hurt  and confused, I had to open up and share my hope with others along the way if I was to continue ahead to my dream life. Addiction and recovery were the processes I used to cope with my life, I was at war.  To feel as if I belonged, I drank or did drugs, whatever was offered.

 

One fateful day for which I am forever grateful, a nurse told me that I was orangey and looked like my liver was failing. so I tried and failed to stop drinking on my own. Soon after, all my friends left me and I started my recovery in the rooms of 12-step on January 17, 1988. 

 

Helping others is ingrained in all of us. I think we forget that people are what make the world go 'round. The best and most interesting part of my life is sharing moments with others. Maybe I am a learner at heart and have curiosity about the human psyche and addiction, or maybe I just like opening people's eyes to their possibilities because it makes the world a better place.
