Recovering from addiction to drugs or alcohol doesn’t end with the completion of an addiction treatment program. Even after finishing a program, they still feel tentative about returning to their everyday life. It makes sense then to offer an aftercare or transition program like the sober living program offered by the District Recovery Centers. Individuals in the early stages of recovery can find the structure and support they need to gradually return to normal life. Sober living is a means to practice the skills and techniques learned in treatment while having a safe, secure place to return to when difficulties or challenges arise.
What Is Sober Living?
A sober living home offers a stable living environment. Here, clients live with peers going through similar stages early in recovery, creating a community focused on their well-being and success in sobriety. Some individuals may have an unstable home environment for whatever reason, which can act as a trigger during recovery. The District Recovery Centers designed our sober living program to give clients a transitional option allowing the time and space to return to their normal life or begin rebuilding one away from negative influences and triggers that can harm their recovery.
While staying at our sober living homes, individuals can take advantage of support groups and the therapies they experienced in treatment to stay on the path of sobriety. It’s also an opportunity to build new, healthy relationships with others as clients learn to be held accountable and hold others accountable for their recovery.
What We Provide
Our house managers and staff members are on-site each day to aid clients. Our sober living program at the District Recovery Centers not only works to ensure the safety of each resident during recovery but also provides the resources necessary to maintain sobriety and progress. For example, we offer a variety of supports, including:
- Community Activities: We organize community bonding activities for residents to participate in, ranging from trips to outings like hiking and cookouts.
- Tutoring: For some, substance use disorder may have derailed their education or career development. Our sober living program can put clients in touch with tutors to help them get back on track and improve their budgeting and personal finance to secure their independent future.
- Job Assistance: Getting back to work is a major goal for many individuals in recovery. While staying in our community homes, we can assist clients in locating positions to apply to, build their resume, and work on their interviewing skills to secure employment.
- Health and Nutrition: Part of living a sober life means taking good care of your mental and physical health. Perhaps the best way to begin doing so is by learning how to meet your nutritional needs best and setting fitness goals.
