Sober living homes (sometimes called halfway homes) act as a bridge between the inpatient facility and the “real” world. After leaving an inpatient center and returning home, it is possible to have difficulty adjusting to your daily life. Sober living homes are an alternative to rehab that can help you reinforce the lessons from rehab.
Many people in recovery find that moving into a sober living house after treatment is the best way to go about regaining their sobriety. Sober living homes are a great way to ease any worries about returning to your normal life after such a controlled environment. Sober living homes are often the only way for those in early recovery to live in a safe and sober environment. Although it doesn’t offer the same structure as an inpatient facility or a nursing home, it provides a safe and sober environment for residents to learn coping skills. This encourages them to make good choices when they return home.
Inpatient treatment centers are where patients are completely immersed in their rehabilitation programs. They generally have little dependence. This is not true in sober living homes. Residents don’t have to stay on the campus of the sober living facility. They can move around as they wish. Individuals in recovery can feel as if they are returning to normal life, and can resume their daily tasks and responsibilities. Sober living homes have fewer restrictions than inpatient hospitals, but they still must adhere to certain rules, such as curfews or group meeting attendance. Staying in a sober-living house has many benefits. These include attending 12-step program, creating structure and accountability, and developing a sober community. Positive friendships are a key part of sober living. They help reinforce your desire to abstain drugs or alcohol.
Residents can avoid isolation and return home safely with this support system. For those coming out of rehab, it provides a supportive environment that supports recovery from addiction and substance abuse. Sober living homes offer a balance of freedom and structure that can help people adjust to their new life after rehab. These homes are designed to be transitional housing for those who have just finished treatment.
As a supplement to a person’s recovery, a sober living home is available. This is an alternative to moving from an immersive care environment to a completely unstructured home environment. Sober living homes are able to decrease the likelihood of relapse by allowing them to replicate everyday life and instill healthy habits.
