Patients are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. For those traveling from out-of-state, Sobriety House will arrange to pick up from the airport. Sobriety House staff will meet you at the baggage claim area when you arrive and transport you back to the airport when you are discharged.
You will be welcomed by a staff member in our reception area. There will be paperwork to complete including an in-depth assessment, consent forms, treatment plan and so on.
