Find a Sober Living Program Specializing in Suboxone Management

In Resources by Admin

Prospective clients or family members regularly reach out to Westport House admissions to inquire about our sober living program and if they are allowed to continue taking Suboxone while residing with us. The answer is yes. And the reasons are clear. Under the Fair Housing Act (FHA), it is illegal to discriminate against individuals participating in medication-assisted treatment (Suboxone). Apart from the legal aspects, we believe there is nothing inherently “wrong” with Suboxone sober living, and many recent studies support its efficacy (especially for individuals with a history of chronic relapse), as long as the client is taking the medication as prescribed, is in the care of an addiction-trained psychiatrist, and resides in a safe, supportive environment.
