Individuals recovering from a substance use disorder usually have a common goal: to achieve long-term sobriety. Sticking to a sober lifestyle is a lifelong process that requires both individual commitment and adequate support. The first step for some individuals who wish to live a sober lifestyle is typically enrolling in a rehabilitation program. After that, many questions may arise:
Is inpatient treatment all there is?
What happens at discharge?
How does someone stay sober?
What does life look like sober?
Sober living programs offer a safe space for those who need to continue their recovery after receiving alcohol or drug treatment. These communities provide an array of services and amenities to help patients maintain sobriety. Sober living homes can be an excellent option to help people transition between treatment and community life.
- Sober living facilities promote accountability by establishing a set of rules and a structured system that facilitates recovery.
- Adequate peer support is essential for maintaining a sober lifestyle. A sober living home is a community of like-minded people who understand the difficulties of staying sober and sharing a common goal in their recovery.
- Whether going back to work or buying groceries, the tasks of daily living can present many challenges. Sober living facilities help people recover and reintegrate into society by providing a safe environment to practice sobriety.
- Studies indicate that sober living arrangements help reduce relapse rates among individuals. These arrangements provide continuity of care and support for participants. Those who stay sober and involve themselves in the recovery process are more likely to remain sober for the long term.
A good sober living facility will also require residents to attend an intensive outpatient program (IOP). And upon completion of the IOP, the facility will help residents meet their school or work requirements.
