WHY SOBER LIVING
Sober living communities provide those in early recovery with an environment where they can support one another in maintaining their sobriety. This should always be a safe place where staff and other residents can help one another work towards lifelong recovery one day at a time.
Drug and alcohol treatment centers begin the process of teaching a person to find the healthy lifestyle choices that will allow for sobriety and continued recovery. There are a lot of tools that are gathered while in a residential treatment program that are instrumental in learning about the disease of addiction and alcoholism. The reality however, is that often 30-90 day programs aren’t enough time to fully nurture the process of safely integrating back into ones environment. Sober living gives women the space and the opportunity to learn how and where to apply the tools learned in residential treatment in real-life situations while in a safe, supportive environment
With alcohol and drugs being so prevalent in our society the task of simply going to the grocery store or drug store can be extremely triggering for those in early recovery. Our house managers are available to go with you for support while you get stronger in your recovery so that when you go home, you’ve got the experience and foundation to do these daily tasks with less likelihood of reacting impulsively and making a decision that could ultimately send you back into the nightmare of active addiction.
Addiction is a monster and can be extremely cunning, baffling and powerful and our impulsivity is often the cause for a relapse. Sober living allows for the time to work on our impulsiveness therefore greatly decreasing the likelihood of a relapse.
