Sober living at Viewpoint allows people in recovery to be surrounded by a solid, supportive, inclusive sober network without the structure and formality of a residential program. Sober living homes are an excellent option for those who are graduating from an inpatient program and are transitioning to independent living. At Viewpoint, clients do not need to complete a residential treatment program in order to be admitted to our programs, however we do welcome individuals who have completed one and are looking to step down to an outpatient level of care with structure. Sober living is ideal for people whose home situations aren’t always conducive to recovery. It’s also a reliable choice for anyone who is struggling to stay clean and sober. It provides a safe place for you to work on your recovery without the temptations that go along with being entirely on your own.
Why Should You Consider Sober Living
Living on your own can expose you to issues that increase your risk of relapse during this sensitive time. Having a community of counselors and other individuals can help you stay accountable and focused on your recovery. Common issues that can cause you to relapse, particularly early in recovery, include:
- Friends or family members that use drugs or alcohol
- Relationship stress or conflicts
- Limited access to therapy and rehabilitation support
- An environment that reminds you of using drugs
Sober living homes allow you to avoid these potential triggers. As you continue in your recovery, eventually, you will be ready to return to regular life fully. Sober living gives you the time you need to focus on healing while still allowing you to handle your primary responsibilities and feel that you are still engaged in your life. While we understand that many people are eager to get back to their families after completing an inpatient or outpatient mental health program, a sober living program is the next step toward living independently. We offer family support programs to further support our clients in their recovery.
Sober Living Is the Next Right Step
Many clients find sober living to be the right level of treatment for their initial recovery. It allows them to take responsibility for themselves and their life while having a stable and safe living environment. This balance can create an ideal environment for recovery. Sober living can result in better treatment outcomes, including:
- Reduced substance use and criminal activity
- Greater mental stability
- Increased odds of employment
- Transportation to meetings and therapy
- Solid sober community
- Access to mental health services
In addition to being a supportive environment, sober living gives you time to heal and connect with others who are also in the process of overcoming mental health and medication management concerns. More addiction counseling results in better outcomes. However, many clients aren’t able to spend an extended amount of time in inpatient rehab. Sober living allows them to stay in treatment and practice the skills they need for lasting recovery.
At Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center, our sober living homes offer comfortable home environments. You’ll share a home with other residents in recovery, and an onsite manager to ensure safety and accountability. Amenities include hardwood floors, modern facilities, cable, and wifi. Also, we provide transportation to groups, therapy, and 12-step meetings. Fitness memberships allow the client to improve their health while in recovery. Additionally, spacious bedrooms offer needed privacy. Our Prescott location offers a small-town historic feel and is surrounded by the Prescott National Forest. We find that reconnecting with nature aids in healing from mental health concerns and addiction.
