A sober living home acts as a supplement to an individual’s recovery. It is an alternative to going straight from an immersive care environment to totally unstructured independent living. Many people choose to go into a sober living environment (SLE) due to the risks associated with going straight from treatment into independent living due to the lack of accountability and sustained recovery support, which has led many individuals to relapse upon return home. Because sober living homes replicate normal, everyday life situations and instill healthy habits while in a clean and sober environment while also providing accountability, they help to reduce the chance of relapse.
People staying in sober homes usually have to pay their own rent, buy their own food and do the same things they would do for themselves if they lived in a regular home but while having the added benefits of accountability and the support of others who are also living a substance-free lifestyle.
People can usually come and go from the home as they please, as long as they follow sober living rules. Guests are also usually subject to random drug screening tests to ensure that they are clean and sober.
