Sober living is ideal for individuals who have just left inpatient rehabilitation facilities. More likely than not, recovering substance abusers have a lot of anxiety about going straight from inpatient rehabilitation to their daily lives and fear the possibility of relapse. For individuals who feel safer having structured support right out of rehab, sober living is the way to go.

WHAT IS SOBER LIVING?

Sober living, also known as transitional living, is a safe and supportive living situation that promotes the sobriety and wellbeing of recovering substance users. It is a step between inpatient treatment and the “real world”: sober living allows the housing member to focus on recovery while in a comfortable environment. Sober houses are usually in residential neighborhoods, which helps recovering addicts see – and slowly become a part of – the mainstream community.

Absolutely no drugs or alcohol are allowed in the sober living residence. The house members must comply with drug screenings, house meetings, and chores. At certain days and times of the week, residents can leave the house. However, they will have a curfew and will need to sign in and out so that the staff knows where the residents are at all times. Newer residents will be accompanied by a staff member whenever they leave the house.

WHAT IS LIFE IN A SOBER RESIDENCE LIKE?

After breakfast, the residents will be driven to the outpatient facility, where they will meet with their counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists. Group therapy and the 12 step program will be offered. After outpatient treatment, the residents will return to the house. Here they can relax and talk, watch television, and work on their exercises. Some days there will be house meetings during which the house manager will talk to the housemates about issues, disagreements, and disputes amongst residents or amongst residents and staff.

HOW MUCH DOES A RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER COST?

The cost of a residential treatment center will depend on the specific treatment service you select, the length of treatment and extent of clinical care, and whether you are paying under a health insurance plan.

Depending on your health insurance policy, a percentage of inpatient costs might be covered by your provider. For those paying for treatment out-of-pocket, you might try paying for inpatient treatment by utilizing personal savings, applying for grants or scholarships, or taking on personal debt from credit cards or an unsecured loan.

WHY SOBER LIVING IS IMPORTANT?

Individuals who attempt to go straight from inpatient treatment to their daily lives often have extreme difficulty with their recovery. They may also feel isolated, alone, and depressed. However, recovering substance users who reside in sober houses are less likely to relapse and have the benefits of creating a network of peers who have a similar goal: to obtain and maintain a drug free life. Moreover, the structure of sober living allows residents to focus on their recovery goals and to reinforce the lessons they learned in their inpatient rehabilitation programs. Most importantly, sober living is a much safer alternative than going straight from inpatient treatment to the mainstream community.

FAQS: SOBER LIVING

WHAT IS A SOBER LIVING TREATMENT CENTER?

A sober living treatment center provides individualized medical care to individuals who have become addicted to drugs, alcohol, or a combination of substances – all of which take place on campus. Our team of licensed experts helps you become healthy and sober and are dedicated to your mental health and physical recovery.

Through a residential addiction recovery center, individuals can transition to recovery with a quiet, distraction-free space to focus solely on their new life.

IS SOBER LIVING THE SAME AS INPATIENT?

Yes, a sober living treatment center is the same as an inpatient treatment center. Sober Living is ideal for someone who has made one or more attempts to become sober but is unable to stop using, is physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, and needs medical detox recovery and rehab services. It is also ideal for those who find it helpful to be in a new, structured environment to focus on their health and recovery.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GROUP HOME AND A SOBER LIVING TREATMENT CENTER?

A sober living treatment center (or inpatient rehab recovery center) provides a variety of therapy/mental health services and detox services for those who are unable to stop using drugs and/or alcohol and need assistance. A group home often tends to be for individuals who have already stayed in a residential treatment center and have completed detox. While both group homes and sober living or residential addiction treatment centers provide a supportive environment, a group home does not provide medical assistance.
