A Connecticut recovery program in which patients remain in their own homes has shown early promise, with four of the first five patients maintaining sobriety for a year, according to The Fix.
As part of Aware Recovery Care, patients are assigned a counselor, nurse, psychiatrist, and other support staff. Patients download GPS tracking for the phones, and are monitored during the program.
Over the course of a year, the program costs $37,500, which is similar to the cost of a 28-day stay at an in-patient center. Proponents of the program are currently fundraising for a controlled study to analyze the effectiveness of similar at home programs.
