The Webster Place Community and Lifestyle
Webster Place is an alcohol and other drug recovery community. Our substance abuse treatment approach at Webster Place is peer-based support and we believe that one person in recovery can help another person who wants to recover. Webster Place has adopted the philosophy of Health Realization and The Three Principles. The Three Principles include Mind, Consciousness, and Thought. We help our residents to become more self aware of the thoughts that they have all day long and how some of those thoughts stick and create feelings and how others just pass through consciousness without much acknowledgement. We work under the premise that a person in recovery need not change their thinking but to be more self aware and we call this process an Inside-Out Approach to life. The Webster Place staff practices a proven 12-Step program, and we share our experience, strength and hope with our residents. We are non-medical and non-clinical. Our staff provides guidance, coaching, and mentoring. We subscribe to both the Three Principles and to the Twelve Steps.
The length of stay at Webster Place is open-ended. Most residents initially commit to a 30-day program; however many decide to stay longer after they see the changes and growth they are making as an individual and with the support of the Webster Place community.
All residents are monitored by a recovery coach who will spend quality time in a one on one setting. The coach will monitor growth and challenges. This is the go-to person for special needs and concerns. The recovery coach will work with the resident to develop an individualized after care plan that includes sober living ideas, half-way house suggestions, Intensive Outpatient Program options, and lists of twelve step meetings back in the home area. A high level of resident involvement in aftercare planning increases their commitment to post treatment recommendations.
Residents will be responsible for self-administering any prescribed medications. If an emergency comes up, our local hospital is only two miles away. Our sister program, Farnum Center, is a quick 45 minute drive away from us and transportation may be available. Farnum Center offers Medical Detoxification, Doctors, and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors if needed at an additional cost.
Our family style dining is bountiful and healthy. Mealtime is important, and we encourage residents to relax while sharing and communicating with each other, as well as with our team. Special dietary needs can be met and accommodated with out any concerns.
Our resident’s accommodations are relaxing and comfortable. Residents live in well-appointed double occupancy rooms, and every room has its own private bath. At Webster Place, residents help with simple housekeeping chores. We are proud of our home away from home, and we take care of our place, and each other.
The work of recovery is challenging and we take time every day to try something different. It’s important to break the stress of early recovery. We provide many opportunities to participate in diversified activities that include gourmet cooking, gardening, yoga, acupuncture, music, karate, meditation, writing, knitting, arts and crafts and many others. Webster Place also hosts chaperoned field trips to museums, lakes, baseball games and recovery events.
Admission is an easy three-step process
