In our sober living program at Solution Based Treatment & Detox, individuals develop the skills needed to cope with these daily struggles. Preventing relapse starts with a supportive and nurturing sober environment. There is a big difference between people who don’t drink/use drugs and people who have overcome alcoholism or drug addiction.

Who Can Benefit from a Murrietta, CA, Sober Living Program?

What sober living means is that those who wish to get a little closer to school, work, and family can do so, while still resting safe and sound within the SBT network. We make it easy for individuals in sober living to keep coming to therapy appointments and support group meetings, and we 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 treatment stage, including IOP/ sober living.

What is important is actually getting to the point where sober living is a logical next step. To this end, SBT 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. These programs include:

Maintaining Sobriety in Sober Living

Individuals who come to SBT are not just looking to get sober for a short span of time. They are looking for a permanent change. They are looking for lasting results. That is what we want for them—and it is what our sober living assistance program is all about.

Are you or your loved one ready to take this step toward ongoing recovery? We invite you to contact us today to find out. Call us at SBT, and ask about sober living.

Benefits of a Sober Living Program

At the beginning of your sober journey, it’s best to avoid events that will make you feel tempted to drink or use drugs. Your therapist and sponsor will have more insight into approaching this and what your timeline might look like. Being around people who are drinking and using drugs can make it extremely difficult to avoid relapse. Unfortunately, many cultural, religious, social, and interpersonal events–things that keep us connected to our friends, family, and history–involve the use of alcohol and drugs. Ask yourself this question: Will I be able to put my sobriety first at this event? If you’re tempted to avoid taking the steps you need to take to prepare yourself for the event, it’s likely that you are not ready to go. A sober living program allows people in recovery to be surrounded by a solid sober network without the structure and formality of a residential program.

A Supportive Sober Network Makes all the Difference

Even if you avoid situations where drinking and drugs will be present, you might occasionally get cravings. Instead of ignoring the temptation to use drugs and alcohol, you may find it helpful to acknowledge your desire to use with a therapist or another sober living resident. Your sober network will help you remember the consequences of relapse and how your experiences with drugs and alcohol have affected your life in the past. If drugs and alcohol have caused problems in your life, these problems will only get worse with age. 

Addiction recovery is ultimately a process that lasts a lifetime, and the daily challenges and stresses of your regular life can sometimes make lasting recovery difficult to maintain. A sober living program is perfect for someone who wants to hold on to their sobriety outside of their regular environment.
