Westport House Sober Living for Men
162 Kings Highway North, Westport, Connecticut, 06880
SOBER LIVING IN CONNECTICUT Individuals and family members will invariably face challenges as inpatient treatment ends and “life” begins. At Westport House, we understand how navigating living arrangements, careers, relationships, and other important areas of life can create unexpected obstacles that may threaten sobriety. Because structure and support in early recovery can often increase the probability of long-term success, we offer three distinct levels of sober living in Westport, Connecticut. Each environment has been carefully designed to preserve the dignity and respect for the individual while acting as a launching pad to sobriety filled with new insights, living skills, and relationships with others in recovery.
- Three Distinct Sober Living Environments for Men
- Integrated Outpatient Services
- Recovery Coaching
Extended Care Sober Living for Young MenExtended 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.
Structured Sober LivingSober Living at Westport House is a supportive residential community designed to help you 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. Sober living at Westport House is appropriate for individuals who have completed extended care or who may be new to recovery and have yet to fully ingrain the skills and habits indicative of a sobriety-focused lifestyle along with a local network of like-minded peers.
