Located in Ocean Park, Washington, Free by the Sea Sober Living provides housing and treatment for residents who are looking for continued alcohol or drug rehab support for up to one year. This program is ideal for those who have successfully completed inpatient treatment at Free by the Sea or elsewhere; however, residents of the sober living are still required to attend their Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) while also working or going to school.
Accommodations and Amenities
The 15-bed facility is situated on a beautiful five acre campus overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Accepting both men and women, the living quarters offer double occupancy bedrooms and a bathroom. The rooms feature comfortable beds, dressers and scenic views of the property. Residents also have access to a modern kitchen, dining area and common room during their stay.
The on-site amenities include a fully equipped workout room as well as tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. In addition, clients are able to go to the beach or head into town during their free time.
Rules and Regulations
The environment at Free by the Sea is highly structured and supportive. Residents typically stay anywhere from three to 12 months, during which they are required to attend the IOP on campus. This includes a mixture of group and individual therapy, 12-step work, as well as educational discussions for three hours a day, three times a week. Evidence-based therapies help clients form positive coping skills and healthy thoughts. When not in IOP, clients are expected to be working, volunteering or in school. The program is happy to assist residents in putting together resumes, finding prospective job listings and going through the interview process.
While those in the sober living program have more freedom then the residential clients, they are still required to sign in and out when leaving the property. There is also a curfew of 10 pm on the weekdays and 11 pm on the weekends. Residents are expected to attend a minimum of five 12-step meetings a week, with both on-site and off-site locations, as well as get a sponsor and begin working the steps.
Personal electronics such as laptops and cell phones are permitted and smoking is also allowed.
In addition to the core program, residents may also participate in group meditations and art therapy.
Free by the Sea Sober Living offers safe and stable living arrangements for those still grappling with the fragility of early recovery. Through peer support and continued treatment, the program at this hands-on transitional living facility encourages long-term sobriety through 12 step work and philosophies in conjunct with individual and group therapy, creating a clear path towards recovery and a foundation for continued success.
