What is a “Sober Living House”?
A Sober Living House is a broad term describing a sober, safe, and healthy living environment that promotes recovery from alcohol and other drug use and associated problems. Many thousands exist in the Unites States that vary in size, organization, and targeted population. At a minimum, RRs offer peer-to-peer recovery support with some providing professionally delivered clinical services all aimed at promoting long-term recovery.
Recovery residences are sober living environments, meaning that residents are expected to abstain from alcohol and illegal drug use and the misuse of prescribed medications and over the counter medications or other substances of abuse of any sort.
The Complete Wellness Addiction Center core competencies include: Commitment to recovery and safety of our clients, emphasis on communication and influence and responsiveness to our client’s needs.
At the Complete Wellness Addiction Center Recovery Residences, communication and responsiveness is prioritized and influence and mentorship is provided appropriately to aid in the client’s recovery with the help of house managers, life skills counselors, and peer mentorship.
What is the primary purpose of Sober Living Housing?
The purpose of Sober Living Housing is to provide a safe and healthy living environment to initiate and sustain recovery; defined as abstinence from alcohol and other substances of abuse and improvement in one’s physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being. Individuals build resources while living in a recovery residence that will continue to support their recovery as they transition to living independently and productively in the community.
