Westport House is a nationally recognized sober living program designed to reintegrate young men back into independence with the skills, practical experience, and foundation in recovery that best positions them for long-term success.

Independence and personal responsibility gradually increase, with support from a team of experienced recovery professionals, individualized addiction treatment services, and graduated levels of residential care.

Discovery House is a recovery residence for those participating in drug treatment or who have recently graduated from treatment and are entering back into the work force.
We provide specific services that can complement ongoing drug treatment and prepare the client for the eventual return to life. Our clients learn to live life again by participating in group recreational activities and their own day to day life functions such as shopping and cooking. They learn to help each other and to receive help in return – all as part of the therapeutic community.
Communication is necessary for full recovery and is vital for life success. Often times we find that addiction began with the inability to communicate. Unable to address life problems with communication, the individual attempted to solve these problems by numbing themselves with drugs or alcohol. Communication can solve almost anything in life. We encourage our clients to communicate freely about their successes, worries or problems. They learn that conflicts with family members, staff or other clients are addressed through communication.

What is a sober house (a/k/a 3/4 house) and why are they important?
A sober house, also called a ¾ house, recovery house, or transitional living facility houses individuals recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction in order for them to focus on their recovery. Its residents are individuals coming directly from rehabilitation or 12-step programs, halfway houses, inpatient treatment facilities or those who simply want to have a sober environment to aid them in their transition. Sober houses provide a valuable method in assisting individuals in their long-term recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism, allowing recovering alcoholics and addicts a place to live a normal life while they continue their recovery.
What are common characteristics of a sober house?
The following are the chief characteristics of a sober house:
Residents live in or work out provided they follow the house rules.
It promotes 12-Step programs
It has a secured, safe and competent structure intended for the long-term recovery of individuals.
It has a 24-hour house manager and staff that implement the programs and exercises close supervision.
What is the difference between a halfway house and a sober house?
A sober house is an inexpensive drug and alcohol- free environment where the alcoholic or drug addict can obtain support from peer groups. In general, the rules at a halfway house are stricter than the rules at a sober house (sometimes called a 3/4 house). It provides a positive environment for recovering addicts and alcoholics to receive the emotional support they need from residents going through the same experiences. Experts agree that both halfway houses and sober houses (also referred to together as recovery housing or transitional living) are very important tools to use in one's lifelong recovery journey.
A halfway house imposes strict regulations for its residents in order to mitigate the chances of relapse. Residents are required to sign the house rules contract that includes the policy against bringing alcoholic drinks and prohibited drugs, and requires the adherence to curfew and similar rules. Noncompliance to the house rules subjects a resident to removal from the halfway house.
What things should I look for in evaluating sober homes?
Safe, secure and drug-free. The sober house must have the necessary permit to ensure fire safety and building security. Unwarranted intrusions from outsiders must be eliminated. Alcohols and drugs should be strictly prohibited within the premises.
Strict, written rules and guidelines. This is to ensure that the residents will have a structured environment that will minimize the possibility of relapse.
Supportive staff available 24x7. There must be a manager or a staff member to answer the needs of the residents 24/7.
12-Steps or comparable programs. Twelve Step programs are vital methods in alcoholism and drug addiction recovery. The residents must be trained to be accountable for their actions so that they will be able to cope up with the challenges that await them in the outside world.
