Sober Living For Residents of Houston: Choose Resurgence

Recovery, and learning to live a sober life is a very individual process that is different for everybody. Sober living homes in Houston, Texas, are especially important for those who have completed residential treatment but don’t feel that they have a stable home environment to return to. A lack of a stable, alcohol-and drug-free environment can be a huge obstacle for sobriety after rehab, even for highly motivated people.

Sober living homes are also a good choice for those who want an intermediary step between inpatient rehab and returning to completely independent living. They offer structure, support, and ensure you won’t feel alone or lost during recovery. You can reinforce the lessons you learned in rehab, and develop healthy coping skills while transitioning back to everyday life. Social and environmental factors are important in recovery success, and a sober support system will help you avoid feeling isolated and improve your chances of staying sober.

Often, residents will have to take drug tests, participate in programs, and demonstrate efforts toward long-term recovery. Some homes have 24-hour, on-site medical care, with psychiatric nurses, and licensed clinical social workers. High- accountability homes are strict, with a high level of structure, and a schedule and activities facilitated by staff. This is a good option for someone with a history of relapse. Traditional sober living homes have a combination of freedom and structure. You can come and go as you like, returning to daily tasks and responsibilities. Living in a sober home will keep expectations high, provide peer support, and offer structure, and scheduled activities in a substance-free environment.

Just Works

Individualized treatment programs delivered in a comfortable, relaxed setting promote healing in your recovery journey.

Living in a sober home can promote lasting recovery. If you have concerns about staying alcohol- and drug-free on your own after your inpatient rehabilitation, you should move into a sober home. Resurgence can refer you to a number of homes, many of which will allow you to come and go as you please, as long as you follow certain rules, like:

  • No drugs, alcohol, violence, or overnight guests
  • Active participation in recovery meetings
  • Random drug and alcohol tests
  • On-time fee payments
  • Curfews
  • Involvement in either work, school, or an outpatient program
  • Participating in house chores and attending house meetings

Violations of the rules will have consequences, depending on the facility and the violation. Living in a sober home, you will be expected to be responsible for yourself, which is an important step in recovery, because many times, addiction will cause people to act irresponsibly.

These rules may seem tough, but combined with the support and community found at Resurgence, you will be able to maintain and commit to a healthy, independent, sober lifestyle.

Benefits of Sober Living with Resurgence

Counseling and therapy are beneficial beyond inpatient care, and Resurgence’s outpatient and alumni programs give access to these services. Support is also given from one another in the house, and you can make new friends committed to sobriety, and help others along the way.

A sober living home can help you with things like finding a job, finding housing after treatment, making amends to people who were affected by addiction, and transitioning back to life in an unstructured environment, in a new and healthy way.

Women’s Sober Living

Although every person is unique, relationships between men and women can be complicated, especially if there is a history of trauma or abuse, or there are needs such as childcare. Women face specific, gender-based issues, and many women have different underlying issues than men when it comes to addiction.

Some benefits of staying in a women’s only sober living facility include:

  • Feeling more free to express emotion together and relate to one another
  • It may be easier to have a deep level of communication and understanding with other women
  • Some women feel safer without the presence of men in the home
  • An environment that fosters female empowerment, to build confidence and skills to live independently throughout recovery
  • An environment that avoids stereotyping and sexual harassment, that will ensure women’s needs aren’t silenced or ignored or deemed a “woman’s problem”
  • Gender-specific stigmas associated with women and addiction can be addressed

Men’s Sober Living

Men face their own specific issues when it comes to addiction recovery. A men’s only sober living home can eliminate distractions, as the sole focus in recovery should be staying sober and building skills and foundations for independent living.

Some benefits of staying in a men’s only sober living facility include:

  • Learning to deal with fractured relationships in positive ways through peer support, from a male perspective
  • Men may feel safer discussing emotional issues or trauma in a men-only environment instead of around women
  • Men can build a strong, personal network together, and form like-minded, sober friendships, without the need for drugs or alcohol.
  • Addiction can affect sexuality, mental health, physical health, and involve violence and crime, topics which some men may not feel comfortable sharing with women
  • Men, in particular, may have violent outbursts, compulsive behavior, and competition in the early days of recovery, so it may be safer for women and other populations to be separated so they can work on their own issues without worry
  • Men can join a community of other men to combat stigma and perceptions of weakness and “unmanliness” around losing control of their lives and know they are not alone
  • Gender-specific stigmas surrounding men and addiction can be addressed

Whichever type of sober housing you choose to pursue, through Resurgence’s outpatient and aftercare programs, you will be supported and find a like-minded community to get you through whatever life throws your way.
