Extended Care

Extended care at Westport House offers a bridge from inpatient treatment to independent sober living.

Extended Care at Westport House is designed to support the recovery process for young adult men as they transition from a higher level of care – typically inpatient treatment – to an independent sober living environment. Extended care blends the transformational power of experiential activities, physical fitness & recreation, and local recovery community immersion with outpatient clinical services to establish a supportive environment in which young men can develop the life-skills and practical experience characteristic of individuals in long-term recovery.

Why Extended Care for Young Men?

Led by an experienced team of clinicians and transitional living professionals, Extended Care serves young males who need help translating insight into action. Most have recently been discharged from an inpatient treatment facility and are ready to continue their recovery while living with more independence in a less structured environment. Others may need more support than traditional outpatient therapy provides. The first two weeks of Extended Care focuses on orientation and assimilation into the community. During this time, residents get to know their peers, participate in up to 15 hours a week of clinical treatment services, take part in recreational, social, and physical fitness activities, while learning to navigate the local recovery (AA, SMART Recovery, etc.) community.

The client’s progress is constantly evaluated by his care team (recovery coach, clinical staff, and program director). While progress is measured by the individualized goals and objectives met – and not by number of days “in program” – the typical length of stay in Extended Care is 60 – 90 days.

Upon successful completion of Extended Care, clients typically step-down to the sober living facility. Here, they experience the independence of sober living while remaining connected to their peers, recovery team, and local recovery community.
