What happens when you enter Eco Sober House

To ensure the safety and comfort of tenants, Sober House in Dorchester has rules and restrictions you must adhere to. Let’s take a look at what to expect when you cross the ESH threshold:

  • People who come to the facility after the end of the course of intoxication must go through a trial period (on average a month) to complete all 12 steps to recovery.
  • There is work with books during such a period, writing the 4th step. People should be honest about their fears, psychological trauma, and the person’s place in the world.
  • At this time, guests do not have the right to use phones; they also take away their car keys. Leaving the house is possible only together with another tenant.
  • The individual will receive back the gadgets and keys then at the discretion of the manager; as a rule, this happens after 3-4 weeks.
  • The resident may get his phone if he needs to call relatives or discuss work issues with colleagues. All conversations take place under the control of the manager.
  • If we speak about a person who has been sober for some time, most likely, the restrictions do not apply to him.
  • Such people are permitted to do their business if they are actively working on their fourth step.
  • The facility manager may alter the restrictions placed on guests based on their progress in their 12-Step program.

The ability to follow the rules is a valuable life skill. Although you may want to live separately after therapy, you are probably not ready for the drastic changes. ESH offers something between what you will have in the real world and a specific structure with control of behavior.


What happens in case of a relapse

When a person who resides at ESH tests positive for drugs/alcohol or violates the other rules listed above, they will be asked to leave the residence. Suppose a person denies taking drugs/strong drinks. In that case, he can be re-examined, e.g., he may send the blood to one of the local laboratories for testing because we understand that mistakes sometimes happen. Less intrusive tests can show false positive results.

Sometimes the administration of a sober living facility allows a guest to return to the residence if he can prove that he is working hard on his recovery. However, a person must finish detox therapy that lasts at least a week before re-occupancy. The staff of Sober House in Dorchester will help you find a place at one of the detox centers and drive the patient to and from treatment.

If the tenant does not plan to go back to the facility, they may spend one night at a hotel chosen by the manager; other residents will help pack the luggage. The ESH administration also assists in finding an automobile. If a person refuses to leave the house voluntarily, the manager must seek help from the authorities, as such behavior disrupts other guests’ safety.

Some dodgy tenants use fake urine or other people’s biomaterials to successfully pass a drug test, which can also lead to them being asked to leave the house. The facility manager is not obliged to provide evidence of such violations; the decision is based on his observations. A similar rule is specified in the Agreement that you should sign.

East Boston is a district with over 40,000 residents and offers plenty of entertainment for people of all ages and social statuses.

Piers Park: it is the ideal place to relax if you plan to spend the whole day outdoors. You may stroll along the 600-foot boardwalk, warm up on the outdoor exercise equipment, or enjoy active games on the sports ground. Stylish alcoves and jet fountains provide relief during the hottest hours.

The park boasts an original amphitheater and waterfront access from where you can admire the beauties of the central districts of Boston.

Shrine of the Madonna: at the top of the hill, you will see the Shrine of the Madonna, Queen of the Universe, founded in 1954. It is the original copy of the statue of the Madonna, installed in the inheritance of Italy, sent to Boston in three single parts. The author of the statue is a sculptor with Italian and Jewish roots who miraculously managed to escape during the invasion of Nazi Germany in Italy. Surely you will be interested in this sanctuary. Still, the main feature of the location is the ability to enjoy the picturesque landscapes of Logan Airport and all of Boston. It is one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in the city.
