Eco Sober Houses LLC's first house was opened in March of 2021 in Dorchester, MA. ESH is a hardcore 12 step sober house based on Alocholics Anonomys that got the manager, Brian sober. We take a hardcore approach to the 12 steps; clients are put on around a 30-day restrictions where they won’t have their cell phone, car, and are only allowed to leave with trusted individuals in the house.
They are taught the disease model; a model created in Alcoholics Anonymous. This model explains why we as hopeless variety addicts can’t get or stay sober. They are then brought through the first few chapters of the AA book; The Doctor’s Opinion, Bill’s Story, There is a Solution, More About Alcoholism, and We Agnostics. The chapters are explained in the view of someone that got sober through the 12 steps and their view on the readings.
