SOBERLINK Alcohol Monitoring System
A leading-edge accountability tool to support our resident’s recoveries.
One way that we support our resident’s ongoing recoveries is through SOBERLINK, a remote sobriety accountability program. SOBERLINK has not only brought peace of mind to residents and family members, it has been instrumental in helping many maintain long-term sobriety.
How SOBERLINK works
Residents who choose to participate in the SOBERLINK program sign a contract agreeing to perform random alcohol tests using SOBERLINK’s handheld breathalyzer. Two to three times per day, a text message will prompt the resident to perform a test. Once the resident has performed the test, his result, GPS location, and a photo are sent to his case manager and clinician. If the resident must delay the test, he can notify the team via a text message. If breathalyzer results are positive, the team will contact the resident. If the resident is unable to respond within 15 minutes, the team will initiate an agreed upon plan of action.
SOBERLINK is available to residents during and after their stay at Westport House. Our team will design the resident’s testing schedule, create accountability plans, and provides support throughout the process. Participation is not mandatory. However, we strongly recommended a minimum three-month commitment.
