Also called “Transitional living,” sober living is a place where recovering addicts and alcoholics can live before they transition into normal life. Many people go into sober living after traditional drug detox and drug rehab to strengthen their recovery. A sober living is often a house or apartment inhabited by other people trying to stay sober. There is usually some structure like curfews, drug tests and chores, but there may not be quite as many scheduled activities as drug rehab. Sober living provides structure and accountability while we learn to experience everyday life without drugs or alcohol. Living with sober peers with a common goal strengthens our coping skills, provides additional healing after drug rehab, and prepares us for the ups and downs of normal life.
