ABOUT SEASIDE HOUSE
Set along the Intracoastal Waterway in Jupiter, Fla., Seaside House offers a long-term sober living program for men recently discharged from primary substance abuse treatment.

Duration of treatment varies, and all residents are required to enroll in school, secure employment, or find volunteer opportunities within the community. Since Seaside House is a transitional program, detoxification services are not available. However, drug testing is conducted on a daily basis at no additional charge.
