There is more to sober living than simply abstaining from drugs and alcohol. It requires a willingness to live one day at a time, saying yes to actively pursuing a purpose in life. Sober living does not happen overnight but it is easier when you are in an environment that is supportive of your recovery. Casa Nuevo Vida recovery homes are warm, nurturing places – ideal for people who are looking to start or continue a clean and sober life.
What Is a Sober Living Environment?
Recovering sobriety is not an easy process. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but it also requires the right environment for successful sober recovery. When alcoholics and addicts get out of rehab, they oftentimes struggle to maintain their sobriety if they head straight back into their old lives. That is where sober living houses come in. A sober living house is a great place for addicts to begin their sober recovery process after they get out of rehab.
How a Sober Living House Works
A sober living home is a place that offers alcoholics and addicts a place to start practicing their sober recovery. It is a residential facility that has absolutely no alcohol or drugs on the premises. This includes things like alcoholic mouthwash, aftershave, cold medicine and vanilla. The goal is to completely remove all sources of intoxication from the environment. This will ensure that the residents have the best chance to maintain their sobriety. With all sources of temptation removed, the residents will not have any way to slip up if they are struggling to maintain their sobriety.
Our sober living residences are typically located in a quiet neighborhood. The houses we manage are subdivided into separate living quarters, but we have communal living environments. Living communally lets the residents take strength and support from each other as they are working to move forward in their lives of sobriety.
Residents are regularly tested for drugs and alcohol. Most sober living facilities have a zero tolerance approach to drug or alcohol use. If a resident is found in possession of drugs or alcohol, or if they test positive for either, then they will most likely be asked to leave immediately. The zero tolerance rule has to be enforced to safeguard the sober environment of the other residents.
All the residents have daily assigned chores to help them rebuild their responsible lives. In addition, all residents are expected to either be working or actively seeking employment.
Also, the sober recovery homes provide counseling and group meetings to help support their residents in the quests to maintain sobriety. The residents attend 12-step meetings daily in order to keep living there. Failure to attend a meeting can be a cause for dismissal. There are also many other rules, such as keeping things clean and being home by curfew. Failure to maintain the house rules can result in punishments ranging from paying a fine to expulsion from the house.
A Range of Transitional Living Homes
While a majority of transitional living residences are aimed at people with lower incomes, we offer boutique sober living houses. Our upscale residences have the same strict guidelines as traditional sober house, but they offer residents many amenities like massage therapists, spas, pools, private chefs and hot tubs.
People generally live in a sober living residence for a period of at least 90 days before they are ready to move out. Some people stay up to a year, but almost no one is allowed to stay for more than a year. When they are fully adjusted to a life of sobriety, they are through the transitional living process and ready to move on.
