About Sober Living Homes

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.

What To Expect In A Sober Living 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.

Increase Your Chances of Staying Sober

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.

Residents in sober living homes can do many things to help them through recovery.

  • Make amends with family and friends who were affected by your substance abuse.
  • Find a job.
  • After treatment, it is possible to find housing.
  • Adjusting to sober living within an unstructured environment

A carefully planned aftercare plan that includes a relapse prevention strategy and therapy can help you identify triggers. You will also be able to learn healthy coping skills as well as emergency contact numbers for times when you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed by your cravings. You will be able to create a plan of attack for how to handle these situations and also have healthy ways to deal with triggers in your everyday life.

How To Move Into A Sober Living Home

If you are concerned about your ability to stay sober alone, it is a good idea to move into a sober living house. Sober living homes offer a valuable option for many who are in recovery. A sober living home is a place where people can stay for at most 90 days. However, it’s possible to extend the stay for longer periods.

Many people in recovery find that it is beneficial to their sobriety and health to live in an environment with a support network. Contact Otter House Recovery if you need assistance in finding a sober housing home or other treatment options.

Great place to start the recovery process before you start out on your own. I still go back there for meetings and to just talk to staff and hang out in a safe environment. Highly recommend if you want to stand on your two feet again.

As an active member of the recovery community here in Asheville, I would recommend Otter House to any men looking for a... safe and supportive environment while they learn to live and stay on right road to recovery. The staff are well known upstanding men in the recovery community and are not only role models for other men looking for guidance, but also fellow addicts who have the firsthand experience of knowing what it’s like to be in early recovery. Otter house is not just a place to live, but a place that makes sure that every aspect of a residents life supports him in becoming a successful and sober member of society.read more
