The Sober Shuttle promotes continued recovery therefore will not transport individuals back home or to old neighborhoods. The commitment to transport ends when the next treatment destination is reached. The Sober Shuttle is not affiliated with any particular treatment program or organization, therefore we will not wait for urine to be taken, interviews to be conducted, insurance to be confirmed, or paperwork to be completed
Please note that due to our strictly volunteer status and the demand for Statewide services we are unable to transport to Physician's Appointments, Psychiatric and Counseling Appointments, Clinic Visits, Self-help Meetings, or Drug Court and Probation Appointments.

I was first blessed with the Sober Shuttle in my life at 5 months and 3 weeks clean. I was graduating my sober house in Cape Cod and was to move to Chelsea where my husband had already set up home. The only issue was I had no transportation and no where to turn. My husband told a newly acquainted friend named Jim of my dilemma. The next thing I new there was a green van in the driveway with white letters that read "SOBER SHUTTLE". Before I knew it I was packed and on my way to Chelsea. After that my involvement with the Sober Shuttle was a gift of recovery! We carried the message of recovery to people in treatment centers and tried to give hope and inspire those struggling and suffering with substance issues. I have now learned to live life with honor and dignity and with great gratitude for the Sober Shuttle!
The Sober Shuttle, Inc. is a group of individuals who have sustained a productive degree of recovery and a new and happy lifestyle. We welcome all those wishing to recover from their own addictions to join us and become a part of the Sober Shuttle family.
Re-establish trust and family engagement. It has been the experience of many that family members who place distance between themselves and the actively addicted do so to protect their own physical and mental health. When an individual enters recovery "Miracles" happen and families begin to reunite.
The Sober Shuttle strongly believes in their fellowship and in the power of 12-Step work. By becoming active in ones own recovery and in the recovery of others a common bond will form and new friendships will develop while existing relationships flourish.
