Sober Living

Sober Living Transitions Clients to Everyday Life

Once a client has finished treatment and is prepared to go home to their community, it is suggested to join a sober living program first. This affords clients the opportunity to gently transition back into their hectic lives. All clients should progress at their own pace with help of ongoing outpatient treatment, as this is the safest, healthiest, and wisest way to make the transition from rehab to chaotic family life as it reduces the risk for addiction relapse.

Sober Living is an Important Part of the Recovery Process

Clients can remain in a sober living residence for protracted periods of time, if needed, and are free to resume pre-treatment routines such as working, shopping and school. Although the client has independence, they still have a sense of responsibility that they would not otherwise have. This environment also helps develop and practice positive habits and fosters good decision making, both of which are important for long-term sobriety.

A sober living program can also support clients with help them locate jobs and housing and is also available to help reestablish relationships that were once ruined by their addiction. If there are concerns about being able to live on your own immediately following treatment, or just for extra precaution, consider a sober living program your best option for long-term recovery.

Sober Living is a Team Sport

Sober living offers the benefit of a drug and alcohol-free environment. There is an unheralded advantage, however, in the form of friendship and camaraderie. Researchers have found that those with a strong social support network have a greater chance of regaining strength. Social networks are an integral part of sober living. As housemates, you can offer support to each other and provide each other with assistance. A sober living friend will provide you with plenty of support, whether it's a hard day or an occasion of cheering on a sober milestone. It's encouraging to hear people who share your goals! Newcomers usually receive support from those who have already have some sober time.
