LIFE ON THE COAST
Sober Living can be much more than counting days
Sober life is about sober living! While a number may help define our recovery, experience teaches us two things. First that sober life has to evolve, we have to grow. Engaging and evolving opens the way into long term recovery. That's why we say that we need to create a new life before the old comes back for us. And, second, that we need to heal the pain inside us that lead us to drink or do drugs in the first place. Among coping skills for life, substance use absolutely defeats us, it doesn't help us solve problems.

You may bring your car. If you do not have a car, you may use Uber, walk or take a ride with one of the house bicycles. Town, IOP, private clinicians, grocery store and meetings are less than a mile walk. Most of the time, one of house members is traveling in the direction you are going and will give you a ride. Nothing is more than a fifteen minute drive. For those who may want the ease, you may also purchase a ride plan from us.
IMAGINE FOLLOWING YOUR PASSION FOR FUN. NOW IMAGINE BEING SURROUNDED BY SOBER PEOPLE THAT AGREE.
We live in an upscale area with many activities. Here is a glimpse into what is offered.
Getting physical is a great way to relieve stress, distract yourself from circular thinking, build healthy habits and re-orient your mind. Getting physically active and eating right literally results in feeling the natural rewards of dopamine while also charging up your self-awareness and empowerment. The rewards of connection and friendship are a natural result of many facets of our house, but especially the ones involving those fun, physical activities that we take turns planning.
Westbrook Hunt and Sunset Stables.
We travel 4 miles to participate in equine ground work (included). Some of our residents take riding lessons at their cost. Lessons are for every level from beginner to nationally ranked hunters, jumpers and equation riders. We also make a day of it and go to Sunset Stable in Lincoln, RI.
