Supportive Sober Living

Sober living homes provide safety and accountability for men and women with addiction and mental health issues to rebuild their lives and continue their path of recovery. Usually, individuals will choose to live in a sober living after detox, treatment center, or residential program. Many clients will participate in an Outpatient Program while residing in sober living. The level of support and community that sober living homes provide allows individuals to maintain the progress that they’ve achieved during the treatment process.

Sober Living for Men and Women

Sober living provides the opportunity to live in a healthy and safe home, free of alcohol and drugs, usually after completing treatment at an inpatient facility. A step down from residential treatment for men and women transitioning back into their everyday lives through sober living programs.

Determining the appropriate next step can be challenging, as there are various options. The steps you take to treat substance abuse and psychological health after inpatient treatment, known as “aftercare”, will create an effective plan that is critical for success in early recovery for the client, and choosing a sober living that is the right fit is a fundamental part of many of these plans.

Remember that every single sober living arrangement is unique in the degree of what they provide. The inclusive and optional amenities included in the home vary from place to place. Transitional housing provides a community of people committed to living clean, sober, and in recovery together.

Benefits of Sober Living Houses

There is ample evidence to support sober living, even in a modest apartment, as an effective way for people with addiction and stability issues to maintain abstinence over the long term from drug abuse. One study published in The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs in 2010 showed positive longitudinal outcomes for 300 individuals in two different sober living homes staying drug-free. Improvements were noted among participants in the reduction in drug and alcohol use, a reduction in arrests brought about by the criminal justice system, a lessening of life-threatening psychiatric symptoms, and increased employment. Factors that contributed to these outcomes were the social network that was utilized, including more involvement in 12-step house meetings, and a community that was largely free of drug addiction and alcohol use.

Sober House Structure: Trust & Accountability

Sober homes and sober living provide varying levels of structure for their clients. This set of halfway houses’ house rules and the intensity of involvement in the planning of sober living home residents’ daily lives is meant to help newly sober clients with such programs that build a life free of alcohol and drug and alleviate the suffering of addiction. It is with the continual support and structure of these halfway houses that clients can free themselves from their substance abuse tendencies, and find the stability to continue forward in recovery, all thanks to the help as well of sober living coalitions and the support and endorsement of American addiction centers.

The Support of a Sober Living Community

Living in a sober environment is a chance to cultivate new, positive relationships with people that are also on the journey toward recovery from drug and alcohol or mental health. Many battling dependence on drugs and alcohol find themselves isolated and alone, often without many meaningful friendships, while relationships with family and significant others are strained from the stress of drug and alcohol addiction.

There is real power in being a member of a community of kindred spirits, all striving to improve themselves. Sober living is one important way to build a network of people you can rely on to sustain, and celebrate, a life of recovery. Other residents learn this as they stay for a certain period until they are fit enough to integrate themselves into the outside world independently.

Support groups are your lifelines if you want to stay sober, and it’s much better since you feel loved and appreciated by people who, like you, underwent alcohol abuse or drug addiction. That way, you feel more empowered to continue with your trauma therapy or alcohol recovery process without feeling unsatisfied or neglected.

Stephen Carmel

Founder & CEO

I began my journey to recovery back in 2011 when I moved to California from New York.Along wiht my recovery and beginning a new way of life,I began to develop a heart for others struffling with sobriety.My journey to California was filled with many trials and lessons learned, but most of all, personal growht.I truly believe i would not have found success if I didn’t come to California.I started CPR as a way to work with people in recovery on a daily basis and it evolved into something much more beautiful. I have also come to realize that my own personal happiness and recovery depends on being involved in the lives of people in recovery. Helping others recover is a cornerstone of many 12 step programs, as it is here. Giving back to those still suffering, is the only way not to lose what you have gained. It is the paradox that we live by every day.
