Sober living is vital to your success after spending 30 to 90 days in treatment. That is because the sober living environment offers you the chance to put what you learned into action before returning home. Sober living is a less structured, more flexible environment, where you will have an opportunity to leave the grounds on your own, but when you return, there will be staff to greet you and hold you accountable. This freedom allows you to make healthy choices on your own. This can be an empowering experience and give you the added confidence you need before returning home.
While in sober living, you’ll meet new friends who share the same interests as you and possibly the same challenges. Having sober friends is a massive part of staying sober, and there is no better place to meet sober people than a sober living. These new lifelong friendships will provide you with the confidence and accountability that is fundamental to your successful recovery and continued sobriety. You won’t feel alone or isolated on your journey; instead, you will be encouraged to maintain healthy interactions within your relationships in this supportive environment.
Sober living is best utilized when an intense outpatient program accompanies it. The combination of outpatient treatment and sober living makes for a fantastic aftercare program. Statistics show that people who go to sober living and outpatient have a much better chance of staying sober than people who don’t. Research by The National Institute of Drug Abuse has shown that sober living significantly improves one’s chances for maintaining long term sobriety. Just a few months in sober living can make the difference you need to adjust to your new happy, sober life successfully.
