At Start Sobriety Now, we know that recovering from alcohol or drug addiction and abuse can be a difficult process. It requires a great deal of commitment and will power in order to remain sober. Our team is prepared to provide you with the best tools to begin and continue on your journey to sobriety.
While in rehabilitation with one of our premier treatment facility partners, it is far easier to stay sober, as the likelihood of gaining access to drugs or alcohol is slim to none. Additionally, help to overcome the temptation to use is readily available. Call us today to speak with a treatment specialist for more information on finding the right rehabilitation program for you. However, once rehabilitation is completed, a person has to return to society and try to return to a normal life. This can be difficult for a person who is in recovery to do, as they may still be accustomed to using drugs and/or alcohol in their everyday lives. On top of that, temptations are far greater and it is far easier to gain access to the substances.
Given all of these factors, it is not uncommon for people to relapse after completing rehabilitation for drug and/or alcohol abuse and addiction. Fortunately, there is a way that individuals can remain on the path of sobriety after completing rehab. How? –By moving into a sober living facility, with the help of our trained treatment specialists, for continued support and accountability.
What is a Sober Living Facility?
There are various stages in the recovery process. The first stage, the early recovery stage, is the most significant as it also poses the greatest risk. During this time, an addict is still learning how to lead a life that is free of drugs and alcohol after rehab. Although it can be difficult for a person to successfully transition into this new drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle and abandon the destructive behaviors that used to be such a large part of his or her life, our team at Start Sobriety Now is determined to make this transition as easy as possible. Call us today to get started.
A sober living home, as it is often called, is a facility that is specifically designed to help people overcome the early phase of recovery. We work with facilities that provide individuals in the beginning stages of recovery with the structure and support that they need after completing rehab. They help people cope with the challenges that come along with this transitional period and can help them return back to a normal, healthy life that is free of drugs and/or alcohol.
It is not only the counselors who can offer residents at a sober living home the support that they need to overcome temptations and relapsing. Those who live in these facilities gain a sense of camaraderie, as they are living in close quarters with other individuals who are also going through the stages of recovery. Together, residents and counselors offer a strong support system, which can help those who live in a sober living home have more success as they venture down the path of sobriety after completing a rehabilitation program. Call us today to learn more about counselors who specialize in addiction treatment, and let us help find the best fit for you.
