What Is Sober Living?
The process of recovering from active addiction often requires sustained, long-term and targeted approaches that are designed to reduce the likelihood of relapse and to help improve a person’s ability to manage their responsibilities. We know it takes time for new patterns to take root as healthy habits. A high-quality sober living environment can provide long-term structure, support and continued care to help you build a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
High quality sober living homes offer clean, safe and affordable living options that are free from drugs and alcohol. Recovery housing like this is also designed to help a newly recovering individual navigate the challenges of early sobriety.
Transformation House Sober Living offers in-house case management services provided by Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. We focus on life skill development and care coordination with outside clinical providers. Structured activities focus on fostering a sense of health, home, purpose and community.
Why Consider Sober Living or Recovery Housing?
A stepping-stone between addiction treatment and returning home can help make the transition back to everyday life easier. At Transformation House we offer long-term Recovery Apartments that provide a community of support in a safe environment that can teach you how to live in recovery.
Sober Living in the Twins City North Metro Area
Transformation House offers a sober living program that allows both freedom and structure to co-exist. 12-step meetings and other therapeutic activities are encouraged, as they teach newly sober individuals how to take care of themselves and monitor their recovery on a daily basis. Clients in our North Metro Area sober living homes are able to attend school, work, and attend outside meetings. Clients have reasonable curfews and have chores or other projects within the house to keep it running smoothly while instigating normal daily habits. In this way, our sober living provides clients with useful skills that facilitate their transition back to the real world.
As part of Transformation House full continuum of care, residents can easily attend an Intensive Outpatient track.
Sober Living as Long-Term Support
The majority of people who use sober living as a tool after residential treatment find that long-term sobriety is easier to maintain and that the social network and friends they meet in sober living end up being supportive, long term friends. Sober-living homes are generally not co-ed in order to help clients focus on their recovery without distraction.
Transformation House encourages our clients to use sober living as an additional form of support after a drug and alcohol rehab primary program is completed. Drug and alcohol abuse are behaviors that develop over time. Even after individuals form new habits, a supportive network of friends and positive role models help them to maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
