Sober Living in San Diego
San Diego Addiction Treatment Center
Benefits Of Sober Living
Sober living homes associated with our San Diego Rehab offer an environment that is incredibly important in early recovery. Sober living environments are places where a client can live with other recovering individuals in an alcohol and drug-free living situation. Living with people who have similar life experiences can be a major step toward long-term recovery. Individuals who recover while living in a substance-free zone significantly lower the chances of relapse.
San Diego sober living homes help clients find work and develop healthy hobbies to replace the toxic behaviors associated with a substance use disorder. Residents learn the importance of fellowship, responsibility, and accountability in a sober living facility. They are also able to bond with their peers from treatment. Residing in sober living helps residents improve mental health, remain focused on their sobriety, and avoid temptations.
Sober living facilities are most beneficial to individuals who:
- Completed a detox program
- Completed residential treatment
- Attend outpatient treatment
- Have been recently incarcerated
- Are seeking a sober, structured environment that is a non-treatment alternative
Our partner sober living facilities in the San Diego area are equipped with live-in house managers. House managers enforce house rules, administer drug tests, and monitor the residents on a day-to-day basis. Treatment programs provided in recovery homes often include engaging in a 12-step program together. A caring and sympathetic support structure are integral to building relationships and establishing accountability with other addicted individuals and mentors.
Although sober living homes are not primarily treatment-oriented facilities, there are specific rules and guidelines that residences must abide by. These guidelines are typically posted in an accessible area to everyone. Sanctions can vary from being lenient or strict, depending on the rule. They can also differ depending on the specific resident.
Residents of sober living homes are expected to:
- Remain drug and alcohol-free
- Comply with drug and alcohol testing
- Pay their rent and expenses
- Submit documented paperwork often of the treatment they are involved with
- Engage in self-care, perform chores, do their own shopping and buy their own food
