The Granada House – Alcott Street is a coed sober house in Allston, MA.
Sober living houses, also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug rehabilitation programs. Sober houses serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society.
Sober living homes are group residences for people who are recovering from addiction. In most instances, people who live in sober homes have to follow certain house rules and contribute to the home by doing chores. Most importantly, residents must stay sober throughout their stay in the home.
Residents are required to attend five AA or NA meetings per week. They must go on at least one commitment a month with a local AA group. They must have a sponsor, join a local group, and actively participate by having a job within that group.
Once a week, an in-house discussion meeting is held in which the residents are given a chance to talk about issues affecting recovery and life.
Residents are encouraged to have a bank account and save for an apartment for after they leave Alcott Street.
