Sober Living and Rehab Aftercare were first established on the west coast with the sole purpose to provide a safe environment free of drugs and alcohol for those newly in recovery. Sober livings and rehab aftercare allows individuals new in their recovery to participate in occupational and academic programs while being aided and supported by other house residents.
When sober livings were first established, they served an older population of men and women. They generally served as a safe place for men and women to live communally while working in conjunction with a 12 Step program. Addiction treatment for teens and young adults wasn’t available then. To this day, most sober living homes accept adult men and women of all ages and seldom segregate by age groups.
When an individual completes a primary treatment program such as a drug rehab, it is recommended that they enter an aftercare facility. Aftercare refers to a sober living environment that compliments the initial treatment the individual has received that continues to help the individual progress in their personal recovery. Sober living homes vary in their level of structure and services that are provided, so it is important that the aftercare center the individual will transition to can help meet and address their needs. The continued support that drug rehab aftercare centers provide can be imperative towards one’s continued growth and recovery; though an individual may have successfully completed 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 by promoting structured sober livings that offer a daily schedule and also incorporate a peer-based recovery and support system. By participating within a recovery community the individual can better connect with a support system he or she can identify with. Interactions with their like-minded fellows encourage an individual to listen and take direction from their peer group whom they can identify with. Peers share experience and support with one another thus eliminating the ability for behaviors and actions to go unnoticed within the sober living environment.
