What is the difference between a sober living home and a rehab facility?
Unlike an outpatient program or 12-step community, a Sober Living Home is a place to live. It offers a structured, high-accountability, low responsibility environment for people who have completed primary treatment at a rehab facility or need some assistance maintaining their sobriety. Sober Living Homes don’t have the resources to see patients through the stages of detox. So a majority of our clients have spent time in a rehab facility at some point.
How will a sober living help me stay sober?
It will help you stay sober by providing a structured yet flexible environment which allows you the freedom to get back to living while still holding you accountable and providing peer support.
We prefer that non-narcotic/addictive medications are tried first. But if a controlled medication is necessary we require a doctors note and it will be locked up at all times. Management should be informed of all medications; failure to do so will be considered an attempt to conceal it and treated as a relapse. This will result in immediate dismissal from the property.
Am I able to work?
Yes, and we encourage it although we strongly advise putting recovery first.
Are visitors allowed?
Visiting hours are between 9am and 9pm with permission from management. Visitors not respecting and adhering to the rules of the house will be asked to leave and not allowed back.
