ABOUT CJO HOUSE: SOBER 4 LIFE
Set on a tree-lined street in a historic home in Attleboro, Mass., Sober 4 Life provides safe and structured transitional living for adult men struggling with substance use disorder.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
All clients are individually assessed so that a personalized treatment plan can be created. Each client must commit to a set minimum stay at Sober 4 Life, which varies for each individual. Stays at the sober living facility can last up to 18 months.
The program is 12-step based and designed to help clients successfully acclimate back into everyday life. Residents learn to rely on their peers for strength and support, as well as turn to 12-step fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Drug and alcohol testing is conducted at least twice a week.
During the first 30 days of residency, clients are paired with a peer mentor and are tasked with finding a 12-step sponsor. As they progress through the program, clients build and strengthen their leadership skills and become mentors in their own right.
According to the facility’s website, staff include house managers and `life skills counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Built in the early 1900s, the Sober 4 Life house is set on a half-acre of land and can accommodate up to 16 residents in shared bedrooms. It has a wraparound porch and a backyard with a sitting area, in addition to a gourmet kitchen, a cozy common area, a flat-screen TV, and Wi-Fi access.
