Sober Living for Students

When your academic year is unexpectedly interrupted, questions begin to arise, such as, “Do I have any options?” “Can I graduate?”At Westport House, our Sober Living for Students Program (SLS) supports your transition back to school – helping you stay sober and on course – at your own pace.

The Westport House SLS program is designed specifically to meet the unique needs of this age group. Sobriety is difficult at any age but more so at this time of life. We provide the full spectrum of support necessary for our client’s academic goals in tandem with their growth in recovery. Our wide-ranging support is designed to lead them through the labyrinth of challenges facing them during this critical time in their development. Sustaining their recovery and ensuring that they have the skills necessary to be accepted to and graduate from high school, community college, public and private universities, vocational schools, and graduate schools is the focus of Westport House SLS.

Focus on Students in Recovery

Adolescence and young adulthood is the time in life when the components of success, in all areas, are developed. Addiction wrecks havoc with life skills, especially when they are so delicate and unproven as in this period. Westport House’s recovery philosophy rises from our belief that you must “crawl before you walk and walk before you run”.

The Westport House Sober Living for Students Program helps clients live a sober successful life, with academic goals met, that will serve them for a lifetime. It prepares our clients to transition to campus-based recovery environments, locally or nationally, once you leave Westport House, so they can achieve thier dreams.

The Sober Living for Students Program at Westport House includes:

  • Arranging for medical leave, if necessary
  • Transportation
  • Tutoring

Resources & Support for High School Students in Recovery

The adolescent brain is still developing and needs specialized support that addresses the issues inherent in this stage of growth. When a high school student is in recovery, saying ‘no’ to the friends and situations that led to their addiction is overwhelming. Returning to their neighborhood and old school can undo everything they have achieved in treatment. One study found that virtually all adolescents returning to their old school reported being offered drugs on their first day back in school. Recognizing this threat to sobriety, we often partner with Newport Academy Day School in Darien, or Fusion Academy & Learning Center in Fairfield. Together we provide an umbrella of services – giving students a safe, supportive academic environment to reach their full educational goals, while continuing to focus on their recovery at Westport House.

When these two schools are not options, we address a client’s educational needs through distance learning technology or collaborating with their Fairfield County high school during the day and having them return to Westport House in the afternoon. We can also provide support for clients to achieve their GED.
