    Sober Facilities for Extended Stays

    A sober living home (sometimes called a halfway house) operates as a bridge between an inpatient facility and the “real world.”

    Once leaving an inpatient facility and returning home, you may be struggling with adjusting back to daily life. Sober living homes offer an in-between recovery option that allows you to reinforce the lessons learned in rehab.

    For a lot of people in recovery, moving into a sober living home after treatment makes the difference between going back to their old habits or continuing on the path of sobriety.

    A sober living home is a great option to alleviate any concerns you may have about going from such a monitored environment right back into daily life.

    It doesn’t provide the same level of structure as an inpatient facility, but it does present an intermediate sober environment that encourages residents to develop healthy coping skills and habits for when they return home.

    What to Expect in a Sober Living Home

    In an inpatient treatment center, patients are totally immersed in their rehab programs and generally don’t have much dependence. In sober living homes, that is not the case.

    Residents aren’t bound to the sober living home’s campus and can come and go as they please. This allows individuals in recovery to feel like they are easing back into normal life and can start going back to their daily tasks and responsibilities. Although sober living homes are less restrictive than inpatient facilities, they still have rules that residents must abide by, including curfews and group meeting attendance.

    A big part of staying in a sober living home is creating positive friendships that help to reinforce the desire to abstain from drugs and alcohol. This support system allows residents to avoid the isolation that can sometimes come with returning home while in recovery.

    Improve Your Chances of Staying Sober

    A sober living home acts as a supplement to an individual’s recovery. It is an alternative to going from an immersive care environment straight to a totally unstructured environment at home. Because sober living homes replicate normal, everyday life situations while instilling healthy habits, they help to reduce the chance of relapse.

    Sober living homes help residents do a number of things that will guide them throughout recovery:

    •   Making amends with friends and family members affected by one’s substance abuse
    •   Finding a job
    •   Locating housing after treatment
    •   Adjusting to sober living in an unstructured environment

    Additionally, you can create a relapse prevention plan that allows you to indicate triggers that may entice you to use once you are back home. You can form a plan of what to do if this happens and ways to eliminate triggers from your daily life.

    When to Move Into a Sober Living Home

    You should move into a sober living home after a stay at an inpatient facility if you have any concerns about staying sober on your own.

    The most important thing I can do in my life is remain clean and sober to be a testament that recovery is possible. The halfway house was an integral part of the learning process. When I was there I saw women fail and women succeed. I was able to learn from these women, and find friends in recovery.

    The option that sober living homes provide is one that is significantly useful to many in recovery. Generally, those that are staying at a sober living home will remain there for at least 90 days, but stays can be arranged for as long as necessary.

    Finding A Sober Living Home

    Residents often want to stay longer at sober living homes than at inpatient facilities because they are more affordable and provide more control over their daily schedules. Many people in recovery find it helpful to their sobriety to move into an environment with a readily available support system.
