    Hello everyone -

    I'm looking for a good halfway house for my 19 year old son. There are so many and I cannot differentiate between them.

    I'm OK with private pay if it means a better facility. We are hoping for a structured environment with peers that are also committed to recovery.

    We live in NY, but are Ok with anything in New Jersey, Connecticut or Pennsylvania.

    What is the best way to find a halfway house that is right for you?

    Thanks for the help!!

    @craig22... My best suggestion is to check with treatment programs in the area to see if they have any recommendations. You could also check with local AA/NA groups. A good sober living house can be a fabulous thing for someone in recovery. The structure and community really help people transition back to a "normal" life. Good luck with your search.

    I live in Michigan I went to a place were you share an apartment with a few other people. They take u to therapy classes everyday. Help you get structure job a life again. That's what u need to look for. I wish you the best of luck. It brings tears to my eyes. I hope your child knows how much u care and u just want the best for nim.

    I went through the system several, many times. Just make sure your son is clean from drugs before going into H.House. And really do your research about the place. Talk to someone who has been a client before! Many places are lousy and corrupt.
