8 Benefits of Going to Sober Living Housing After Rehab

What Is Sober Living?

A sober living home is a place where individuals can go to reside after completing an inpatient rehab program. During your time in addiction treatment, you have taken the time to heal from your underlying causes of substance abuse and began to learn the tools for relapse prevention that support you in being able to live sober and avoid any potential relapse triggers. As you begin to embark on your new journey in addiction recovery, there are often concerns and worries from patients about leaving the safe and sober environment of drug and alcohol treatment centers back into your home environment that once fuelled your drug or alcohol addiction. A sober housing program provides patients with the comfort of knowing that they will move from one sober environment to another allowing them to ease their way back into everyday life in society. You will be able to reside with other individuals that are clean and sober and who are sharing the same goal of remaining in addiction recovery.

Do All Rehabs Offer Sober Living Housing?

Each substance abuse treatment program will offer a variety of addiction treatment programs that are unique to the addiction recovery center. There are many treatment programs that will offer sober living housing programs for patients to easily transition from inpatient rehab into a sober environment directly from drug or alcohol treatment. There are some addiction recovery centers that do not have sober housing programs within their center, however, many addiction treatment programs will complete aftercare planning with patients including referring patients to sober housing programs if that particular treatment center doesn’t offer one. 

8 Benefits of Choosing Sober Living Housing After Rehab

The benefits of sober living housing programs will provide patients with the following benefits: 

  1. Smooth transition from the safe and sober environment of addiction treatment 
  2. Ongoing support of addiction counselors or a house manager that will support you as you navigate your newfound life in addiction recovery. 
  3. Ability to build a strong support system in recovery with other housemates that are clean and sober along with connecting with others at 12step meetings. Individuals will be able to find 12step meetings in your local area that will help them create meaningful sober relationships and bonds with others who are in addiction recovery. 
  4. Continued support in developing life skills to ensure success in long-term sobriety. 
  5. Having access to the support you put to use the skills you learned in inpatient rehab to overcome any relapse triggers
