Right Direction


Member of MASH – Mass Association of Sober Housing

RIGHT DIRECTION, located in Quincy, MA, is a Male Sober Living Environment exclusively designed for a maximum capacity of eight guests. Right Direction provides men who have attained abstinence and have a desire to maintain their sobriety a safe, structured and supportive home.

Based on the success of the Quincy and Weymouth models and due to the immense need for safe and supportive housing to practice recovery, Right Direction, Quincy was opened.

Right Direction fosters an atmosphere of family living while promoting individual recovery by providing an environment that allows the residents to develop individual recovery programs and to become self-supporting.

Residents are required to follow a set of house rules. The single most common rule is a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol. Other zero tolerance rules are violence, threats of violence, fighting, theft or violation of curfews. Each resident is required to be financially self-supporting.

Centered on the 12 step philosophy, Right Direction encourages participants to apply the principles of AA into daily life. The goal being permanent contented sobriety. Resulting in:

  • Renewed self-respect
  • Accountability
  • Honesty
  • Self-sufficiency.
  • The ability to live life on life’s terms

Residents are encouraged to actively seek work if unemployed or to be enrolled in school and if disabled, are encouraged to become involved in service to the community. All residents are required to attend weekly 12-Step Meetings. Each resident performs an assigned weekly or daily chore around the house.

If this sounds like the type of environment that you would like to practice recovery in, our Residency Application, House Rules and Consent Forms are available on this site.
