Sober house living (are also sometimes referred to as 'transitional living arrangement', 'halfway house' or a 'recovery residence') is generally considered one step away from a formal substance abuse treatment program. These homes are an in-between option for struggling individuals who are now living sober after completing a treatment program - but before returning to their own residences. This transition provides support and structure while our recovering residents learn to apply their newly-learned tools and use their new-found life skills for becoming self-reliant and remaining drug- or alcohol-free in a safe, structured, community environment.
Sober living homes are alcohol- and drug-free living environments for people who want to live sober, who want to be abstinent from substances and for those who really want to grow in recovery. Research shows that residing in a sober living home increases an addict's or alcoholic's chances at remaining abstinent. Individuals who stayed in sober living homes had improved abstinence rates at 6 months compared to the baseline.
The abstinence rates at 12-month and 18-month follow-up points were similar to those at the 6-month point.
