You've almost completed your addiction treatment program. Now what? Where do you go from here? Transitioning into a sober living situation—also known as recovery housing, halfway houses or sober homes—can be an ideal option. Recovery housing provides a supportive, sober living community where you can start your new life free from alcohol or other drugs. Residents at sober homes commit to abstaining from substance use while pitching in and helping to create a safe, supportive living environment. Choose from short-stay and longer-term sober living options, depending on your situation. Living in sober housing helps you develop new habits and routines, taking what you learned during drug or alcohol rehab and applying it in your daily life. This is where the rubber starts to meet the road in recovery. Think of sober housing as your support net as you practice new skills, gain new insight, and shape your new life in recovery. Having a strong support net in place will help you safely navigate the tough spots and triggers you will encounter after leaving treatment.
