What is a Sober Living Home?

 

     For some people, the transition from inpatient treatment to home life isn’t a smooth one. Things in their life make it harder to stay sober, and some may relapse because of potential triggers that they have little to no control over. Sober living homes act to prevent this, allowing people to form a support system with their peers, have a sense of responsibility, and learn healthy coping mechanisms to use in the real world.

How do Sober Living Homes Differ from Inpatient Programs?

            Sober livings are different from residential treatment centers. Inpatient programs such as a drug rehabilitation center focus on starting someone’s recovery. Often people in these residential programs need to go through detox and are suffering withdrawal symptoms. Inpatient takes away certain rights so patients will not use drugs; they cannot leave the facility, use technology such as phones or computers, must be in their rooms at a set time, etc. People in sober living homes have gone through the emotional and physical struggles and now need to adjust to society in a slow manner, rather than being abruptly shoved into it, risking relapse.

Why Choose Sober Living Homes Over Independent Living?

Sober living offers what many people wouldn’t have if they went straight from inpatient to independent life, this includes a peer support system, supportive staff, and a gradual change in lifestyle, rather than a sudden increase of responsibilities.

            Sober living gives people a sense of community, gives them people to talk to. If someone lives on their own or with people they may not totally trust, they have no one to turn to. This could potentially lead to relapse or other unhealthy coping mechanisms. Being in a sober living home means that people can build strong relationships with others, allowing them to have someone who understands their struggles. According to SAMHSA, “There are four major dimensions that support recovery:

  • 1.Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being
  •  2.Home—having a stable and safe place to live.
  • 3.Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities and having the independence, income, and resources to participate in society.
  • 4.Community—having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.”

Sober living homes fits all 4 of these dimensions.
