Halfway houses. Dry houses. Sober living homes. While they may go by a variety of different names, the common denominator remains the same – they offer an extremely effective tool for preventing relapse.
Typically, residents who choose sober living arrangements do so after completing an intensive inpatient treatment program and still need some additional support. Sober living facilities are similar to rehab centers in that they offer in-residence addiction recovery support. Though, clients have a greater level of independence and can leave the facility throughout the day to go to work and visit friends and family members – as long as they follow “house rules” like curfew and pass drug and alcohol tests.
If you (or someone you love) is about to graduate from an inpatient drug rehab facility, it’s a good idea to research sober living arrangements in his or her community. Still on the fence?
Here are three reasons why sober living homes are highly recommended by so many addiction recovery specialists.
