The Support of a Sober Living Community
Living in a sober environment is a chance to cultivate new, positive relationships with people that are also on the journey toward recovery from drug and alcohol or mental health. Many battling dependence on drugs and alcohol and those with mental health issues find themselves isolated and alone, often without many meaningful friendships, while relationships with family and significant others are strained from the stress of drug and alcohol addiction. During the recovery process, individuals are able to develop connections and bonds with other residents as they continue to grow and heal in recovery. Community and lack of social isolation are just some of the benefits people receive from sober living homes.
There is real power in being a member of a community of like-minded individuals, all striving to improve themselves. Sober living is one important way to build a network of people you can rely on to sustain, and celebrate, a life of recovery.
