With several facilities throughout Massachusetts, Cedar Lake Transitional Properties is a recovery organization which provides sober living services to men and women in recovery from addiction. While all its homes are supervised by house managers, residents generally live independent lives while preparing to transition back into society. In addition to its men’s home, the facility also runs the Canal View Lodge for women, where lengths of stay are flexible though they generally range from four to six months.
Accommodations and Amenities
The Canal View Lodge house has a total of 12 beds available for women in shared rooms spread across three floors. Each bedroom is shared between two to three clients and contains twin beds, dressers and shared closet space. The house also comes with several shared living spaces with TVs and couches, on-site laundry, a dining room and a shared kitchen. During their stay, residents are expected to cook and prepare their own meals.
Rules and Regulations
All clients must get jobs and participate in regular 12-step meetings. Women at the house are overseen by a house manager who administers regular and random drug tests to ensure residents remain sober. While all clients must obey a basic house behavioral contract, they are encouraged to live independent lives and have a hand in the daily operations of the home.
The facility also has a spacious yard where residents can relax during down time. For those in need of additional support, the facility also offers case management services as needed and assistance or referrals for basic medical care. Aftercare is also available in the form of individual and group therapy.
Overall, Canal View Lodge is a basic sober living facility for women in recovery. All clients learn how to live independently while forging bonds with fellow sober folks and participating in a 12-step recovery program. Although women in need of dual diagnosis support may want to seek out additional help, Canal View Lodge remains an affordable choice for those in the area.
