Sober living houses provide a suitable transitional environment for individuals to maintain abstinence from substances.
They can be a vital part of long-term recovery. Transitional living helps provide structure and accountability to those in early recovery and anyone coming out of a treatment program.
Living in a sober living house is like being part of an extended family. The environment provides the necessary structure and accountability for early recovery individuals to maintain their sobriety while providing help when needed with any issues that arise, whether they be personal or related to substance abuse problems.
What is Transitional Living (or Sober Drug Rehab Housing)?
The purpose here is not only to describe how these houses function but also highlight what makes them so valuable in giving people who have been through tough times another chance at success by offering support throughout all stages.
When you’re in recovery, life can be tough. You might not know what your next step should look like or how to keep yourself sober long-term. That’s where transitional living houses come into play.
These safe environments provide stability for people recovering from addiction as well as accountability by tying them down with structured activities every day so they never slip back into old habits too soon again without realizing it themselves.
Once someone has completed treatment but still feels anxious because of his or her big goals, transitional housing helps take away all those negative feelings while teaching new skills on self-care and management which will serve them as they move forward on their recovery journey.
As part of that journey to recovery, we offer sober living residences to anyone who completes our inpatient programs. Our sober living houses are also available to partial hospitalization program participants, intensive outpatient clients, and patients seen only through weekly appointments. Transitional living is proven to guide clients toward a successful recovery.
The National Institutes of Health published a study on sober living residences. It states “Destructive living environments can derail recovery for even highly motivated individuals.” They found that sober living environments provided a 40 percent better success rate for long-term sobriety after six months.
Sober Living for Drug Rehab Alumni
People are at the highest risk of relapse when they return to a normal routine after completing their residential inpatient or partial hospitalization course of care. Offering a sober living environment helps to provide a safe and secure living space that defends against the perils of a tempting substance use disorder.
Sober living also encourages recovery for co-occurring disorders by surrounding people with peers and supports. It closes off isolation, and, therefore, transitional housing prevents relapse as part of rehab programs that offer a wide continuum of treatment options in behavioral health or drug and alcohol addiction.
Sober Living for Rehab Patients
Our recovery residences are available to current clients in a partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient programs. We encourage clients to enjoy these programs due to their helpful structure and high level of safety compared to the individual’s home. With substance abuse and mental health treatment, having a safe, secure, and structured atmosphere helps to provide scaffolding for growth.
Many people who complete inpatient treatment return home while neglecting to stay at a recovery residence or participate in outpatient treatment. Statistics show that recovery residences and transitional living programs improve success rates for those struggling with addiction, drug abuse, and mental health disorders. Addiction treatment while staying at a sober house and continuing outpatient care at a treatment center is proven to help reduce relapse.
What To Expect from Sober Drug Rehab Housing
Our transitional living facilities are close to our treatment facility, allowing clients to continue to take advantage of our amenities and treatment services whenever possible. We encourage alumni and residents of sober living houses to access every resource available to them.
Those living at our residences can anticipate apartment-style living with updated accommodations. With access to medical and therapeutic care at our facility, they may choose to continue to accept therapy and manage medications with us.
We also encourage our residents to attend meetings through alumni events. Residents are drug tested on a regular basis and adhere to standards like curfews and mandatory house meetings. The outcome is a safe space for everyone to enjoy recovery to the fullest extent possible.
Relapse Prevention through Transitional Rehab Housing
Relapse is all too common for those in early recovery. Sober living and continued structure can make all the difference. Most overdose deaths can be attributed to relapse due to the individual’s lowered tolerance. We ensure accountability and sobriety at our residences.
Many people relapse after being sober for a while. Our sober living provides the structure and support that many need to stay away from substances once they are no longer under the supervision of family members or professionals.
One reason why individuals may go back in forth between sobriety is that their body, mind, and behaviors have become accustomed over time to ingesting drugs and alcohol. When these things come up again—it’s like an old friend coming through town! But, transitional, sober housing helps put an end to the cycle of addiction by minimizing the chance of relapse.
Relapse prevention is one of the main goals of sober residences. Combining structure with 12-step programs helps improve sobriety rates from alcohol or drugs. Clients are able to access whichever treatment modes are most effective for them while in residence.
