It’s no secret that recovery takes time. In fact, many people will tell you that the journey is a lifelong process. While there is no singular method that works for all in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, there are certain approaches that seem to have the greatest impact on those trying to break free from addiction. While some manage to achieve a life of sobriety without professional help, most will need medical and psychological support as they begin their journey.
Research has shown that the chance for long-term success is exponentially higher in those who maintain a year of consistent sobriety. This should come as no surprise when factoring in the physical aftermath of substance use and the behavioral and circumstantial change that can occur in a year. But the question still remains: how does one begin to navigate that first year to create the best chance for long-term recovery?
When an individual completes a primary treatment program such as a drug rehab, it’s recommended that they enter an aftercare facility. Aftercare refers to a sober living environment that compliments the initial treatment. It continues to help the individual progress in their personal recovery. Sober living homes vary in their level of structure and services, so it is important to find an aftercare center that can address an individual’s needs. The continued support that aftercare centers provide is vital to continued growth and recovery. After completing a primary treatment program, higher success is found amongst those that enter an aftercare facility.
New Life House shares and expands on this initial sober living philosophy. We promote structured sober living, a daily schedule, and peer-based recovery and support systems. By participating within a recovery community an individual can better connect with a support system they can identify with. Interactions with like-minded people encourage an individual to listen and take direction from their peer group. Peers share experiences and support with one another which helps eliminate the ability for negative behaviors and actions to happen within the sober living environment.
