Sober Living offers individuals post-treatment an opportunity to invest time building a stronger foundation for their recovery and stop the revolving door of sobriety followed by relapse.
Often a person leaves treatment without the safety and security of housing that honors his or her new recovery lifestyle. Sober Living homes provide a nurturing atmosphere where individuals are empowered to continue their recovery in a long-term, supportive environment with others who are in similar circumstances.
This environment promotes building community and prevents potential isolation. Solitude and lack of support, whether personal or environmental, are two of the most common reasons for relapse. Spending time in a Sober Living house helps individuals in recovery gain strength and confidence from their housemates and peers.
Whether you’re committed to strengthening your recovery or you desire safe, sober housing as an investment in your or a loved one’s recovery, Apricity is here to help.
Studies indicate that the likelihood of maintaining long-term sobriety doubles when those recovering reside in a sober living house.
