When you are ready to leave inpatient treatment, it is essential to continue recovery care. We encourage you to participate in group meetings on an outpatient basis so that you continue your journey of sobriety. Remaining accountable for your actions and having peer support is an essential part of long-term recovery. It would be best if you had a sponsor available who acts like a guide when you reach rough patches.
It is often dangerous for a person to return home after detox and treatment for substance abuse. This atmosphere may be filled with temptations to use again. Also, you may not be ready to return to the everyday stresses of life without help. In these instances, you may wish to enter a sober living house. This place helps a person live a more normal life without triggers that can compromise early recovery.
In sober living, you reside with people who are in the same situation as you. In this manner, you can support each other. Also, you learn ways to manage work, school, and regular activities without using substances as a crutch. Sober living is a great way to limit triggers in everyday life while continuing recovery.
