Structured Sober Living
Work and other commitments won’t always wait. That’s why sober living at Westport House is designed for men who require structure and support but can’t take a “time-out” from the demands of life.
When men complete residential treatment, they may need to explore other living options as an alternative to returning to their home, living by themselves, or with others who are not in recovery. For many, sober living can provide the support and structure necessary to strengthen recovery skills before transitioning to an independent living environment. The additional support and structure can help them gain confidence and develop the skills that support a productive and healthy life while conditioning them to respond in a positive way to the day-to-day triggers that can lead to relapse.
What is Structured Sober Living?
Structured sober living at Westport House is a supportive residential community designed to help men navigate early sobriety, identifying challenges and sharing successes — while successfully reintegrating into the workplace and other commitments.
It offers an opportunity to continue the work initiated in addiction treatment or Extended Care, continuing to address underlying issues while receiving support from a community of like-minded peers. For young men in particular, one of the greatest benefits of sober living at Westport House is the sense of community and connection.
Who Can Benefit from Structured Sober Living?
Structured sober living is appropriate for individuals who have completed extended care or inpatient treatment and have yet to fully develop and ingrain the skills and habits indicative of long-term recovery. SSL offers a framework of support as clients reintegrate back into work and family life. Clients are responsible for meals, transportation, and any non-Westport House related events.
