What are the Benefits of Residing in a Sober Living Home?

On behalf of Evolutions Treatment Center allow me to congratulate you on your decision to pursue a life of recovery. Sobriety is a precious gift, one you should take great care to nurture and protect. One way to secure your newfound sobriety is to transition directly from inpatient treatment to a sober living facility. Choosing to reside in a halfway house demonstrates a commitment to your recovery and offers you the structure and accountability you need during this crucial phase of development in your sobriety.

First, sober living has a built-in community of like minded individuals with the same goal of sustained sobriety. Your experiences will benefit each other as you encounter new obstacles, and the ability to come home and discuss what is going on in your life with other men and women in early recovery is a significant benefit of life in a halfway house. The connections you make among those people you meet in sober living will often blossom into lifelong friendships and sober supports, broadening your foundation of recovery substantially.

Additionally, sober living offers a level of structure and accountability conducive to maintaining your sobriety in this critical early period. Studies have shown that those who opt for sober living after completing an inpatient treatment program have a greater success rate of sustained sobriety than those who choose to return to their homes or live on their own. A supportive environment providing a routine and guidelines for living a life of sobriety is a great benefit for you early in recovery, and offers a better chance for you to achieve the long term recovery you are striving for.

Now that you have successfully halted the vicious cycle of addiction, you likely feel your sobriety is the most valuable asset you possess. As with all valuable property, your sobriety needs to be secured and protected. One of the best ways to achieve this protection is by agreeing to reside in a halfway house or other sober living facility upon successful completion of your inpatient treatment program. At Evolutions, we strongly believe in the importance of sober living after inpatient treatment, which is why we have developed our own transitional living facilities for our clients. If you have not already, speak with your therapist about your options for sober living after residential treatment, or call our Admissions Counselors at 833-818-3031 and take this important step in securing your newfound sobriety!
