Our Vision is that everyone in need of treatment for chemical dependency receives the compassion and respect that they deserve while being offered the best clinical care available.
Sober living – also known as a recovery residence or halfway house – is a way for individuals in early recovery to live together. Sober houses are meant to be a controlled environment without the temptations of drugs or alcohol. By living with others in recovery, an individual is not only residing in a safe place but also surrounded by a like-minded community with a common goal of life-long sobriety.
If you are looking for a sober living treatment facility in Tampa, Florida, Coalition Recovery can help. We have multiple recovery residences throughout Tampa Bay to help any individual who wishes to live in the Hillsborough area a chance to live free from substance abuse distractions. Our houses offer modern upgrades throughout and countless amenities.
Too often people leave treatment and return back to their homes. This can cause a lot of unforeseen problems. Most likely, this living space is filled with memories and experiences of a time when drinking or using. This can lead to unfavorable feelings that can be a trigger for many people. Furthermore, chances are the person’s living area is the same as when the person left to attend their treatment program, meaning drugs, alcohol, and paraphernalia can still be lingering creating more temptations to use. This poses a significant problem because a person in early recovery is in their most vulnerable stage of recovery despite completing treatment.
When a person in early recovery is immersed in the unstructured world outside of treatment, they are in their most vulnerable state. This is why a “step-down” approach is always best. In short, a “step-down” approach slowly transitions an individual into their normal everyday life through phases. So, instead of leaving a highly structured environment of treatment into a highly unstructured environment of normal life, individuals are encouraged to attend at least some form of therapy and group meetings multiple times per week. Sober living is an extra safeguard in a person’s recovery.
A sober living residence is essentially a controlled environment safe from anyone and anything that might place someone back into using. Living with other individuals in recovery has its advantages. The residents are able to talk freely with each other about their feelings, experiences with someone else who shares their knowledge and experiences. Not to say that families can’t be supportive, but for someone in recovery, it is comforting to know the people you are living with understand the life of recovery.
The community of a sober residence will often attend drug-free events, cook meals, and attend group therapy meetings nightly. Through continual support and accountability from his or her peers, this sober community makes it easier for someone to continue on the path of recovery.
A day at a sober living residence is very similar to normal everyday living. Individuals are responsible for making their own food, cleaning, and of course, having fun. Unlike treatment and some strict sober living facilities, residents are free to come and go as they please (although may have to sign in and out).
The difference between a normal house and a sober living house is that the latter employs a behavioral technician trained in mental health management and first aid. This technician is responsible for maintaining order throughout the residence and ensuring everyone is abiding by the rules and requirements of the house.
Some of the amenities you’ll find in our homes include:
In today’s world, internet access is absolutely necessary. We provide ultra-high-speed internet for everyone in our recovery residences.
Time to relax! What better way than watching your favorite sports team or favorite movie with the recovery crew on our gorgeous TVs.
Our houses carry modern amenities from stainless steel appliances to GE washers and dryers.
House groups build comradery and establish a sense of community between the house members.
Our house computer is equipped with the necessary tools and resources for job searching and resume building.
For individuals without personal transportation, all of our recovery residences are within walking distance of a bus stop.
Learning and acquiring life skills is important for proper recovery growth. These things can include interviewing skills and conflict resolution.
Especially important for students, allocating time to study or fulfill work responsibilities can be a catalyst for personal growth.
Coalition Recovery Sober Living is also state accredited by the Florida Association of Recovery Residences (FARR). Through this FARR certification, we can ensure anyone who wishes to be a part of our recovery community that our houses live up to the highest standards promoting the highest possible care towards recovery.
Additionally, unlike many sober recovery facilities in the area, we accept participants of medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Therefore, if you are currently prescribed medications for mental health or substance use disorder (Suboxone, Subutex, Vivitrol, Naltrexone), you are more than welcome to join our residence!
Coalition Recovery’s sober living facilities are mixed-sex, meaning we provide specific housing for both females and males. Therefore, if you are looking for a sober living program for men, we can help. If you are looking for a sober living home for women only, we can help you too. If you happen to be looking for sober living for both males and females living together, we do not have this option.
Each of these requirements is for the purpose to foster and support each individual’s recovery. These types of things help promote stability and accountability, which are two very crucial values in recovery–especially important in the early stages. In our residences at Coalition Recovery, we require:
Anyone in active substance abuse recovery can benefit from sober living. It does not matter how short or long you’ve been in recovery for–sober living is open to everyone who has the drive towards a substance-free life.
Sober living is especially convenient for young adults. Often times, students in recovery find sober living extremely useful. It allows them to find other students in recovery which can help separate themselves from the popular party culture around campus.
Sober housing is primarily intended for individuals in early recovery–especially those transitioning out of treatment. Too often, the transition from treatment to normal life can be abrupt. Imagine going from a highly controlled environment, therapy five days a week, and surrounded by a supporting community to none of that in one day. That can be difficult. Thankfully, this is why sober living facilities exist. Individuals may not have therapy as often as they used to, but they are in a controlled environment
