Vermont Men’s Halfway Houses and Sober Living Environments

Men in Vermont seeking halfway houses or transitional living facilities have a great options available. Nobody is further than a few hours from one of the most acclaimed sober living environments in the northeast Granite House, with the stated mission of helping those battling addiction complete their recovery.

What is a Men’s halfway house?

Men’s Halfway houses are gender specific, sober living environments that act as transitional homes for those who still need structure and support in order to fully incorporate the principles recently acquired during their inpatient treatment program. Halfway houses emphasize the development of personal responsibility and accountability, relay greatly on the 12 Step approach, and are highly structured.

Benefits of being in a sober living environment

A sober living environment provides excellent support for those in transition from an inpatient treatment program. It is especially beneficial for young men who are still trying to cope with the demands of adulthood and for those who have had a long battle with addiction. The structured environment and no-nonsense expectations help residents remain on the path to sobriety. To accomplish this, most sober living homes have strict rules requiring attendance at individual and group counseling sessions, and participation in 12 Step programs.

Things to expect when living in a halfway house

For those who decide to reside at a sober living facility, certain things can be expected. Among them are:

  • All residents are required to hold jobs or be actively seeking employment
  • Clients must pay rent
  • Clients must meet their financial obligations.
  • Regular attendance at group and individual counseling sessions
  • Required attendance and participation at 12 Step meetings
  • Participation in the daily maintenance and other activities of the house
  • Enrollment and attendance at a recognized academic institution is required for those who have not completed their education.

If the rules of the house or home are not followed or are violated, clients will be expelled from the facility.
