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.

Facility Highlights

  • Three Distinct Sober Living Environments for Men
  • Integrated Outpatient Services
  • Recovery Coaching

Specialization

  • Extended Care Sober Living for Young Men

    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.
  • Structured Sober Living

    Sober 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.

After being in and out of many different rehabs, it was at Westport House that I learned how to live a brand new life. The staff was kind, loving, and compassionate. They showed me the way up and out of the horrible rut I was in. They also helped my family understand addiction, and what they needed to do to help me, and themselves. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable, and the incredibly supportive! Being able to see their therapists and clinical team was also essential in aiding my recovery. I'm so grateful for the life Westport House gave me.

Having worked in this industry for years, specifically in community outreach, I know the challenges of finding quality sober living for those discharging from residential treatment. I work very closely with our continuing care team on where we send graduates of our program and I can say confidently that Westport House is at the top of our list. My team and I spend hours vetting SLE's all around the northeast and we are extremely particular in where we send our graduates. It is true, there are a lot of sober living homes and communities that are not well managed and operated, and some that are even unethical in their practices. I can say having personally worked with the Director and Westport House for over two and half years that we are 100% satisfied with their services. The owner is friendly, a good communicator, and very serious about maintaining a well run sober living home. We've had clients stay at Westport House and they've all expressed their satisfaction with us and shared their wins of living in such good homes. They are structured, well kept, and motivate their clients to engage in their community while also working on their continued recovery. He makes the process of enrolling people into his homes seamless, which is incredibly important. Transitioning from residential to sober living is a very crucial time in recovery. If you’ve been in this industry for a while, you recognize that you cannot help people who don’t want it and invariably family members will blame the facility and leave disparaging remarks on message boards but I cannot say enough about how great our experience has been with Westport House!!!

Westport House has given our family the relief we needed knowing that our son was at a place that will get him back on the right track. I can't say enough about what they've done and the progress our son has made since his admittance!
