Sober Living Home Fraud in Florida

As fraud continues to be evident in the operations of sober living homes, the common denominator of the industry seems to call for standards. What structure or rules exist? Have they been proven to curtail drug and/or alcohol use disorders or relapses? What variables are objective? We need statistics and we need science. As much as we can use the excuse of there aren't enough services available for the problem, there must be an adhered structure and a common practice among sober living homes.

At By The Sea Recovery, we choose to continue focusing on quality, metric based objectives and structure. We look forward to hearing from your experiences and best practices.

The most insightful video as to why we continue to have punitive treatment for substance use disorders, previously known as addiction and alcoholism. As Hari states, it is in our nature to bond and to connect as well as to be drawn to meaningful relationships and environments that nurture our development. As opposed to the chemical imbalance myth, this social and emotive incentive theory is a breakthrough based on the caged rat with water and water/heroin mix. As Hari states, it was never about the heroin, but about the cage.
As for treatment centers, sober living homes and recovery homes, everything needs to change. The focus is on connection, social circles, fulfillment and positive psychology. Its time to change and this insightful being brings to the general population a huge shift. Time to get rid of your bunk beds facilities and begin fomenting spaces of beauty and staff that knows how to attend humans.

With drinking on the rise and affecting over 33 million people in the United States, efforts to provide alternatives to punitive corrections such as sober living and/or treatment has its own barriers. Society wants them to get help, but not close to them. Alcohol and drug free homes are opening up to attend the demand, but what are the standards and protocols? Is a sober house just any house with agreed rules or should overseeing bodies have close monitoring? Do cities work with these overseeing bodies and how can users and the community have feedback? Research has found that housing for alcohol and drug addiction recovery does in fact reduce crime and impact the overall ambience of a community. The effort lies in communicating these results to society and agreeing on best practices of these residences to have more outcomes rather than dark stories that can pull strong efforts to change the way we view substance use disorders.

And the fight to regulate sober living homes continues. An Arizona bill seeks to license sober houses and recovery homes, placing an interesting point of view on a seemingly untouched policy for disabled housing, which those suffering from substance use disorders are under (ADA and FDH). Are there standards in sober living homes? If they are, they have not been published other than general variables finding support to sustainable recovery. It has been stated that those against the development of more alcohol and drug free housing lies solely on discrimination, yet after reading this article it seems cities or states do not want to close them down, but to make sure there are clear parameters by which to live either side by side to a community or to definitely set out specific boundaries to development. Is there discrimination happening? Im sure. Is it all discrimination? Im not sure, I don't think its wrong to want to find out what are the standards of sober living homes and are overseeing bodies such as the sober living network and caarr living up to these standards when certifying homes. If there is news, it will only bring us closer to attending the questions of the community and strengthening the core of recovery housing.

Let the games begin. A new form of alcohol that has hit the shelfs (mostly digital). We will be witnessing its use (or misuse) as well as the implications and consequences of approving it. Will it be able to be breathalyzed for? How do you test for it? Restaurants, bars and concert halls ok with it? Time to sit back and watch history and the many arrays of patented forms of recreational substances. Im interested in seeing how youth will use it. It seems too similar to another powdered cousin.
