sober living recovery center in floridaSober 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.

Advantages of Sober Living

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.

What Sober Living Looks Like

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.

Who Are Recovery Residences For?

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
