Recovery doesn’t end with finding the right treatment program fitting your needs. After leaving treatment, your living circumstances will have a significant impact on your recovery. How will you use what you’ve learned in treatment? Further, if you face challenges to your sobriety, how will you deal with it? Answering these questions and related concerns are why Dignity Hall exists. With numerous locales throughout southern New Jersey, Dignity Hall provides sober living homes to those in recovery.
Whether you are new to recovery or have gone through it before, sober living gives you a firm foundation. Because addiction is different for everyone, it is complicated. Recovery isn’t something that just happens. Therefore, treating recovery with the same attention and commitment as an addiction is necessary.
What Exactly Is Sober Living?
Long-term recovery, lasting recovery, is your goal. So what is sober living? And how can it help you? Sober living entails staying at a community home where you’ll have access to 24/7 support for your recovery. Sometimes called a ‘halfway house,’ Dignity Hall’s homes provide clients with a means of smooth transition back to their regular lives. This aftercare option keeps clients from being overwhelmed, panicking, or feeling isolated once they leave their treatment program.
Alongside your fellow residents, you’ll learn the skills necessary to transition back to your regular life. But with your peers and our supportive staff, you’ll better identify, confront, and overcome any challenges to your recovery. After treatment, one of the best ways to learn how to handle pressures is by strengthening your interpersonal skills. As you do so with your fellow residents, our staff will help you learn how to manage any medications you have responsibly. Also, staying at a sober living home allows you to develop and improve your independent living skills like managing job responsibilities, domestic needs, and self-care.
For some, leaving treatment can be daunting. The feeling of having to take sole responsibility for one’s recovery can provoke anxiety, even leading to relapse. How can you relieve or prevent this pressure? Aftercare programs such as Dignity Hall’s have proven effective in reducing chances for relapse. Often, being part of a community, being around peers, and individuals who have had similar experiences can make all the difference. Sober living is about providing you with structure and effective accountability to maintain your sobriety.
