Many structured sober livings and recovery homes are now offering PHP and IOP treatment, but can this take the place of traditional inpatient drug rehab?

Sober living is a drug rehab alternativeIt is often heard that structured sober living homes cannot take the place of residential or Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and are best used as part of the step down process.  While this may be true for many individuals who need constant attention and accountability, it does not prove true for everyone.

As Sobriety Experience is known as an upscale sober living facility with 24 hour management, it offers significantly more than traditional sober living homes.  Substance abuse is a chronic, progressive disease and research has shown that the longer people remain in a safe and sober environment, the better their outcomes for long-term sobriety.

Many of the primary services offered at Sobriety Experience are similar to those offered by other addiction recovery homes.  For example, on site managers, regular drug and alcohol testing, weekly house meetings and verification of self-help recovery group attendance is common.  What differentiates this program are the following offerings:

  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment
  • Life Coaching
  • Recovery Coaching
  • Intervention and Family Guidance
  • Monitoring Packages (post sober living)
  • Sober Travel Companion Services
  • Transportation Packages (both local and long distance)
  • Additional weekly urinalysis and breathalyzer testing
  • Court and probation documentation
  • Legal Liaison Services
  • Mental Health Referrals (to therapy, psychiatrists, group therapy, etc.)
It is critical to be honest with yourself and your family about what you believe your needs are before committing to reside in a structured sober living home.  You need to be honest with yourself if attending a residential or PHP program first would be most beneficial for you.  Many people do not wish or are unable to give up their jobs to attend a residential program, so structured sober living at this level may be the best option for them. Additionally, these sober living homes can minimize costs associated with residential or PHP care.
Sobriety Experience offers an upscale, sober living environment that provides opportunities for individuals to continue to participate in their lives while having the accountability that recovery offers.  You can always remember that if it does not turn out to be enough structure, this facility will assist you in finding a higher level of care.
