Immediately following primary drug treatment it is optimal to go straight into a San Diego sober living facility. The benefits of residing in an established recovery community cannot be undervalued. In structured sober living homes, young adults are free from the distractions that contributed to their drug and alcohol abuse. They have sufficient time to focus on their recovery away from the old neighborhoods and unhealthy relationships that are not supportive of sobriety.
Why It Is Important to Reside in an Age & Gender Specific Recovery Community
Young adults think in the short term and when pondering the thought of a life without drinking and using, many cannot come to grips with the idea. It is essential that young substance abusers be surrounded by peers who are on the same journey of recovery, and have faced the same consequences that their addictions cost them. Young men identify with the peer who is an equal, has a similar life history and family system as opposed to the older father who was homeless and lost everything he owned. When young men and women live in their own individual homes, they have the opportunity to concentrate on healthy living and not get sidelined by a potentially unstable romantic relationship so new in recovery.
Recovery Should Be Filled With Purpose and Fun
No one is relegated to a boring, glum life when they are in recovery from drugs and alcohol. If sobriety weren’t fun, no young person would want to get and stay sober – but thousands do every day. The greater Los Angeles area is at the epicenter of the recovery world, with hundreds of meetings every day – many specifically for the young adult. There are also sober parties; events, outings and conferences taking place continually.
