If left untreated, addiction can be a chronic, lifelong disease; likewise, the goal of recovery is for it to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for individuals to have a “revolving door” experience with recovery, doing well in a treatment center, relapsing once they get out, and ultimately finding themselves back at square one, seeking treatment all over again. At Above It All, we are committed to providing our clients with a foundation for lasting freedom from drug and alcohol addiction—something we provide through our sober living assistance program.
What is Sober Living?
What is sober living? Essentially, it is a reflection of an important reality about recovery: It is ultimately a process that lasts a lifetime, and the daily challenges and stresses of your regular life can sometimes make recovery difficult to maintain. In sober living, individuals develop the skills needed to cope with these daily struggles, and to prevent relapse; they are also given opportunities to practice those skills while still living in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Though we do not offer sober living at Above It All, we do connect our clients with sober living communities—whether here in California or elsewhere across our nationwide network. We proudly endorse these as safe havens, comfortable and encouraging places where you can adjust to your new, addiction-free life.
What sober living means is that those who wish to get back a little closer to school, work and family can do so, while still resting safe and sound within the Above It All network. We make it easy for individuals in sober living to keep coming to therapy appointments and support group meetings, and can even arrange transportation as needed.
A common question we receive is how long does the sober living program last? Clinical milestones determine when a client is ready to graduate and move on to any stage of treatment, including IOP/ sober living.
What is important is actually getting to the point where sober living is a logical next step. To this end, Above It All offers a number of treatment programs, all with a focus on healing mind, body and soul. No matter the precise nature of your addiction, we have a program that can help you achieve freedom, and ultimately position you for ongoing success.
