San Diego Sober Living Lifestyle

Continuing Sobriety is Easier When Life is Uplifting

san-diego-sober-living-lifestyleIn early sobriety, building a new life after treatment can present challenges to your recovery. A strong and healthy social-support system is crucial to maintaining lasting sobriety. A safe and supportive place to live and regular participation in a twelve step program are among the most important factors affecting a newcomer’s long-term outcome.

A Public Health Institute study on long-term outcomes of recovering alcoholics/addicts who reside in Sober Living Housing found that transitioning into a sober lifestyle in a good, healthy sober living house with moderate controls can make the difference between lasting sobriety and a relapse.

Building a Strong Foundation for Lasting Recovery

One factor which has a huge negative impact on an individual’s long-term recovery outcome is drug or alcohol use among people in that person’s social network. Newcomers need to avoid socializing with those using drugs and alcohol, including family members. People in early recovery must form friendships and build a support network with others who are committed to living sober and to building a high-quality of life in sobriety.

An unsafe living environment is another negative circumstance which can precipitate relapse. Choosing to live in a safe, supportive sober living house in early recovery will greatly increase an individual’s chance to maintain lasting sobriety.

A safe sober living house is one where regular testing is done to ensure that all residents are maintaining sobriety. In a safe sober living house, residents are held accountable to participate in their own recovery by attending 12-step meetings such as AA and NA. Attendance at regular house meetings ensures that problems which commonly arise in communal living are addressed as a group and resolved in a caring, healthy way.

By the Sea sober living provides structure in the safe sober environment for individuals in recovery from drugs and alcohol.
