A transition from rehab to a sober living home is often a good idea. You get the chance to re-establish your life while getting help for alcohol and drug addiction. You can still be in a supervised, somewhat controlled environment, but at least you’ll have the opportunity to be more responsible for yourself for the first few months. And, you may begin to learn how you’ll handle to live sober without using drugs.
When you enter a sober living home, you’ll usually be assigned a treatment team, which will consist of both staff members and fellow addicts. You’ll be closely monitored by a treatment team so that you stay on track, so you don’t relapse. The transition into this type of environment might require some adjustment to your behavior patterns. You may find yourself changing some of the things that attracted you to drugs and alcohol in the first place. This may mean that you go out for a bit less than you did before, or it could mean that you limit contact with people who were a part of your social network and who probably still use drugs and alcohol.
You can also go to an inpatient treatment services program if you’re unable to stay in the halfway house. These programs are a bit different than inpatient rehabs. In an inpatient program, you stay in the facility under strict observation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because inpatient treatment services are designed to monitor you during your stays, they tend to have a much lower relapse rate than those programs that allow you to use your own facilities during the day.
