Many who complete residential addiction treatment go on to sober living homes. Sober living, a type of aftercare option which can often be a component of an extended care program, provides individuals with a structured living environment away from triggers and temptation. This is particularly important during early recovery, as most relapses occur in the first 30 to 90 days after completing treatment.
Sober living is much more than just a house. It provides recovering individuals with a supportive community who shares similar experiences and goals. Because it is designed to help individuals transition to real world settings, individuals living in the home are expected to become self-sufficient. They are often expected to complete chores, continue with their education, and work. Being able to interact with the wider community allows them to relearn how to develop healthy relationships and improve communication.
Most successful sober living homes also offer clinical services such as individual and group therapy, counseling, and psychiatric services. For those new to sobriety, or those who need some extra support, sober living homes can be the perfect tool and support system to become reacclimated to daily life, without risking their recovery.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with substance abuse, call Mountainside at 1-888 833 4676.
