Locate a Top Rated Sober Living Environment

After a patient has undergone successful detoxification and treatment at a residential treatment center or inpatient clinic, they may want to consider residing in a sober living environment before they return to their daily lives. Sober living housing, also known as halfway housing, is intended to provide former alcoholics or drug addicts with transitional housing to help bridge the gap between treatment and routine living.

Sober living homes are not equipped with the same treatment facilities or detoxification programs that are offered at treatment clinics. Instead, they are much smaller, concentrated facilities where the resident interacts with peers and encouraging personnel on a daily basis. Often, a sober living home will be located in a small town, in close proximity to the regular conveniences one would find at home. The main difference in sober living is that it relieves the individual from the potentially hectic atmosphere they might experience if they were to immediately return to their home.

Because they do not conduct treatment, sober living facilities are not subject to any regulation by state or local governments. They are drug free and alcohol free, however, making them an ideal choice for many addicts recently released from treatment. Some impose curfews, but their main intent is to lead the individual back into a life where they can live responsibly and independently without a constant reliance on substances. Those who live in the facility frequently participate in activities as a group to help enforce a drug free community.
