The Link House is a men’s sober house in Newburyport, 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.
Our original and namesake program, the Link House, is a highly structured, intensive residential treatment program for men who have recently achieved sobriety. Link House residents contract to abstain from all drug and alcohol use and addictive behaviors, attend appropriate 12-step meetings and participate fully in all additional aspects of treatment. Most residents complete the program in six months, but some may stay longer if needed. Residents focus exclusively on recovery for the initial five months, with a full, daily schedule of individual and group counseling provided onsite, and attend therapeutic, medical and legal appointments in the community. Residents are encouraged to fully integrate into the geographical through community service. After five months at the Link House, clients may seek employment, saving toward their next steps following completion of the program. Link House provides 24-hour supervision for residents.
