You’ve done it. You’ve confronted your addiction. Through detox and then treatment, you’ve persevered. You deserve praise. But your journey towards recovery isn’t over. In fact, you’re just beginning on a long-term process of making sobriety part of your everyday life. Thus, you need to know what to expect from sober living. Many need a smoother transition back to their regular lives to help them prevent relapse. Returning to your daily life may feel overwhelming, and you might feel alone. But you aren’t alone. Dignity Hall can show you what to expect from sober living homes in NJ.
What to Expect from Sober Living
A sober living home, sometimes called a halfway house, gives clients a place they can stay as they transition from treatment back into their regular lives. In each of our homes, you will find a clean and safe environment designed for your specific needs and goals. Alongside peers who have similar experiences, you’ll find encouragement and support as you become part of the household’s community. Long-lasting recovery comes from knowing your triggers and developing a plan to avoid and overcome them. Exploring the 12-Step program and other supports, Dignity Hall’s sober living homes aid you in doing the hard work maintaining your sobriety. By providing structure and rules, our sober living homes keep you from wandering off the path of recovery. Instead, you learn the skills, build the community, and strengthen your will to stay sober.
