Why Sober Living?

A sober living home creates fellowship and community that can help you get back to a life where you are happy and fulfilled. The proper support, combined with a safe environment and first hand know-how will guide you to experience a new way of being and behaving. A sober living environment reinforces honesty and integrity as it supports you on your journey to acquiring a great new lifestyle.

You are more likely to maintain long-term sobriety by entering and committing to a structured transitional living environment, like Tharros House.

Teras House

We Also Offer Less Structured Sober Living

Teras, also located in Lexington MA, offers a less structured, but still supportive model of high standards sober living.

If you have many outside commitments, or are ready to return to work, Teras can be a good entry point directly from treatment. For others, after 1-6 months at Tharros, clients may choose to transition to Teras.

Teras is located two miles away from Tharros (both Tharros and Teras are in Lexington MA).  This less structured residence is designed to support clients when they have 25+ hours of work or other outside structure weekly, which can be developed with assistance from our team, in the first 30 days.

At Teras, clients work with their on-site case manager and our vocational coach to develop a recovery fellowship and engage work. Clients of Teras may also be involved in outpatient treatment while they develop a foundation in their recovery work, and apply to work positions. After 30 days, clients are expected to be employed while they continue progress in their recovery work. They continue to meet with their case manager weekly and participate in community support activities.

At Teras, we offer structured sober living with flexible structure to meet the needs of those returning to family, work, school, or other commitments. At Teras, our experienced team, plus ancillary providers, provide a high level of support for clients to take action in a recovery fellowship, and engage outside structure.

Teras does not provide transportation, but you may have a car, and ubers are readily available.

Tharros House

At Tharros House, we combine a sober community with aftercare, assisting our clients as they acquire new skills to meet life’s challenges in a fresh and encouraging way. Our mission is to help our clients achieve long-term recovery, move on from feelings of shame, and learn how to live a fulfilled life. Our sober living home reinforces honesty and integrity as we provide support along the journey to cultivating a new, constructive and optimistic sober lifestyle. With more than 40 years of recovery experience, our team understands what you’re going through and we want to help you love life again.

At Tharros House, we take a custom approach to each client, starting with a full understanding of each client’s needs and goals. Our team connects with each client’s clinical providers to help understand what supports are needed before he arrives at Tharros. In addition to supporting our client’s recovery from substance use, our Tharros team is able to support the work of clinical teams as client’s address co-existing mental health conditions, providing an opportunity for a more holistic recovery by addressing the underlying causes which may have contributed to the client’s substance problem.

As part of our commitment to each client, our team connects with local professionals and we recommend support services and providers, as needed.  These referral services include: Clinical therapy using a variety of treatment modalities; family and couples counseling; therapy groups and addiction classes; nutrition and wellness; stress management; life coaching; mind-body therapies; neurofeedback, hypnosis; and physical training/exercise.  All clients receive an introduction to nutritional eating and wellness through group discussions with a registered dietitian and nutritional cooking classes.  Physical training, Mindfulness and recovery yoga are also offered regularly on site.

As part of our community, clients can participate in over 25 hours of structure offered every week at Tharros, including morning sober house meetings Monday through Friday, our 12-step immersion group, music groups, spiritual groups, and recovery work groups.  We also include fun social events, like our weekly BBQ and bowling nights. Clients also learn life skills through one on one mentoring and fun events, like cooking with exceptional private chefs!  Also included, our community offers activities, like weekend rock climbing, golf, and basketball.  On Saturdays, clients can participate in engagement activities, like trampoline dodgeball, go-kart racing, and escape room challenges.  We provide opportunities for meaningful development of community and positive social connection through these experiences and more.
