, Importance Of A Sober Living Home


SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drug Relapse is common for people that just got out of rehab. They tend to seek the pleasure of drugs even after going through detox and treatment. One way to avoid relapse is to live on a sober living home.

Most inpatient drug and alcohol treatment centers lasts about 30 to 90 days. Most treatment centers do not offer a solid aftercare program, especially for clients who may not be staying close to their rehab program. Aftercare is vital, a person leaving treatment should have at least some form of continued therapy set up to help clients avoid feeling like “fish out of water.” An outpatient treatment program usually meets at night time 2-3 times per week, sometimes less. recommended continued care for at least 3 months, 3-5 times a week. Anything less than this we find to be ineffective and relapse rates increase.

Why engage to another treatment when you just got out of treatment?

An addict or alcoholic has been using drugs and alcohol for years, how can anyone expect them to recover after 30-90 days of inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Clients who are asked to leave treatment and fend for themselves tend to relapse because of the overwhelming stress and emotional highs and lows. By remaining in treatment, with therapists to confide in, and peer support to lean on, clients chances are greatly increased and most will make it through the first year. Once they make it a year, they can achieve long-term sobriety. Statistics have shown that the first year in recovery is to be the toughest. It is the goal and mission here of to get them as close to that one year as they can by providing the best sober living house they can choose. The sober living homes at are investigated before they were listed. These homes provide the best sober living experience for every client. At which point, the client then has to decide for himself if recovery is worth the work or they want to go back to using again.

Most halfway houses provide a bed to sleep in and maybe some rules and regulations in which clients must follow. The sober living homes at is far more than just a place to lay your head and a set of rules. The houses' program is a great starting point for anyone trying to get clean and sober and it is also a great aftercare program for anyone leaving a substance abuse treatment center. These houses offer an intensive outpatient treatment program 3-5 days a week. Their clients will have a therapist they can talk to about what struggles they find themselves dealing with. The clients will have a job coach to help them build a resume and practice interviewing techniques. The clients are required to find employment during their second month with us, not before. The first month in recovery can be very stressful for a person trying to recovery from addiction. These houses want them to attend treatment, go to meetings, spend time with staff and other residents during the first month. Once the clinical team advises them to start searching for employment they may do so. Until then just have the clients focus on recovery and recovery only. Jobs, apartments, money, and success will come when they experience true recovery.
