​​​​How Does TSG LIVING Work?

TSG LIVING Sober House operates as a close knit family. Our residents share a number of responsibilities, but more importantly they provide emotional support, love and encouragement to each other. This caring attitude fosters inward strength so that after leaving a TSG LIVING residence, you are mentally and physically able to handle the inevitable stresses of everyday living without drugs and alcohol. We provide the structured 12 step program that is essential to your recovery to beat your addictions. You don't have to be an addict forever.
Is TSG LIVING the same as a recovery home or halfway house?
No. Therapy, treatment and formal counseling are not a part of our routine. Our approach succeeds because we encourage you to assume responsibility for yourself and for the family group. We create a wholesome and loving environment with minimal structure through sharing and self-discipline. We adhere to housing standards because to violate them hurts our common goal: maintaining a supportive "family" in an alcohol and drug free home.

When do I enter TSG LIVING?
Ideally you reserve a space in one of our Sober Living Environments while you are in treatment. You would enroll in TSG LIVING during your final days and transfer immediately after discharge. We require that our residents either have completed a primary detox treatment program and be part of aftercare, or be currently involved in an outpatient treatment program.

TSG LIVING is appropriate if you are serious about recovery, know what you need to do, and are looking for a safe, nurturing environment to focus on developing a foundation of permanent sobriety.

What is the cost?
Currently the costs range from $400 to $700 monthly depending on the location and amenities of the home.  All utilities are included, including; Internet (wireless), phone, High Definition Cable, & fully stocked kitchen for meal preparation and dining.  We are located in Worcester the second biggest city in MA besides Boston just 40 miles away. We accept all major credit cards, cash or check.
