Sober Living For Women After Drug Rehab

You’ve been through hell the last few months – drug addiction, family problems, having an addition intervention, then finally starting drug rehab.  Now your life is pointed in a much better direction and your rehab journey is over.  It’s time to start living your life out in the world again, away from the cocoon of rehab.  What’s next for you?

Outpatient Treatment After Drug Rehab

Certainly one option is to do drug treatment with an outpatient treatment clinic.  This could include group therapy two or three times a week plus individual sessions.  You would live in your own home and community, blending yourself back into your life and your new treatment plan.  If you have good support at home and an environment that will adapt well to sober living, then you may be comfortable heading home directly after your drug treatment is finished.  It can be comforting to be back among people who love you and are ready to help you keep the changes in your life.

Sober Living Helps With Transition After Drug Treatment

If you are at all in doubt about your ability to stay sober because of your home circumstances or other issues brought up in rehab, the sober living arrangement may be well-suited for you..  This provides a home-like environment with the added support of an all-female staff and co-residents.  Everyone is either in addiction recovery or there specifically to help women with their recovery.  It provides more freedoms than inpatient drug rehab, but does provide more structure than a person’s home environment.

Curfews and visitation restrictions exist to protect women in post-rehab transition.  The women who live there have more open opportunities to join support groups and plan their individual recovery program.  Many people have the idea that a half-way house or sober living arrangement is just a run down joint in the seedy part of town.  This is hardly the case for the Orchid sober living home.  It has the same kind of compassion and attention to feminine needs as the inpatient drug rehab.

Is Sober Living the Right Choice for You

It’s hard to know when the sober living home might be the best thing for you.  Perhaps it is as you transition from drug rehab to your home community.  You might decide that after being at home for a while, you would do better in a sober living arrangement for a while.  No matter what your choice, the Orchid’s sober living home has an open door and a welcome mat out for you.

Making the decision to start addiction recovery is challenging enough.  Getting released from rehab is a big moment, but it’s just the beginning of your journey.  Life in rehab is very different from life at home, no matter how supportive everyone is.  Choosing a sober living home following drug rehab is a way to make your adjustment a little smoother.  Dedicating yourself to a drug free lifestyle is so important, and sober living homes are a great way to bridge the gap between rehab and home.
