Arizona Sober Living

What is an Arizona Sober Living Facility?

Arizona Sober Living

The challenge for many people who have become addicted to drugs or alcohol is often the difficulty in finding the motivation and drive to quit. They fail to see any reason to resist their addiction’s call. This is the reason why they need to seek help. Arizona sober living is a good option for many people following addiction treatment or while in an outpatient treatment program

Sober Living facilities support the successful recovery of their patients. We recognize that each patient is unique and could require a different treatment plan. After the initial evaluation, each activity is designed to fit the patient’s own specific needs. This is a more effective approach to rehabilitation. It results in a plan that’s acceptable to the patient and thus brings sustainable results. If Arizona Sober Living is recommended for someone, Desert Cove Recovery can help to find the best option available. 

Feeling at Home in Arizona Sober Living Houses

Not all patients open up instantly and pour their hearts out during the initial meeting with the clinician. For some, it takes some time before they can divulge their innermost thoughts and feelings – the same thoughts and feelings that led them to the path of addiction in the first place. 

Sober living houses are drug- and alcohol-free spaces for people attempting to resist drugs and alcohol while in early recovery. Sober living homes provide a non-judgemental atmosphere that allows patients to be kinder to themselves and to take on a more positive mindset. They follow step-by-step programs and methodologies designed to lead them to complete recovery. Most importantly, a sober living home is a comfortable space where people are facing similar addiction recovery challenges. 

What’s the Environment Like in a Sober Living Home?

Some sober living houses offer their guests the same welcoming and comfortable ambiance as exclusive hotels or resorts. The difference is in why their guests opt to stay there and the rules their guests have to follow. For one, guests in these sober living addiction centers are supervised by trained and experienced experts during their stay. Other restrictions may be imposed but always as part of the guest’s recovery plan.

Guests in Arizona sober living houses are assured that they will be treated with the care and attention that they need during their stay. During a stay in a sober living home, guests can expect that they will:

  • be treated with respect, and their needs will be acknowledged;
  • have a number of experts whom they can consult with or seek counsel from;
  • be given a customized recovery plan that is more attuned to their own condition; and
  • receive affordable services.

Every sober living house is different. Some specialize in helping young adults recover from their addiction, while others cater to adults only. Many offer gender-separated residences and facilities. Some take into consideration the severity of the addiction and the cause of the addiction. In such cases, the consideration is usually the behavior of the person suffering from addiction. Those who have the tendency to be aggressive or violent might not be integrated with the rest of the guests right away – at least not in the initial stages of treatment.

Why Seek a Sober Living Space?

People with moderate to severe addiction tend to be situated in toxic and highly stressful environments. This is often the barrier that prevents them from crossing over to being sober. Drugs and alcohol are the usual go-to solutions whenever they want to escape their toxic world. When they try to quit, they do so only for a while and then slip back when they feel the same need to escape again. They will find themselves in the same endless cycle for as long as they are in the same environment.

According to studies, the relapse rate for people who wish to recover from substance abuse is quite high despite having a good support system. This mostly happens to individuals who complete their drug or alcohol addiction treatment and then go back to the same environment that caused them to have such an addiction in the first place. Sober living houses take these people away from such an environment until such time as they achieve a level of sobriety that will keep them from slipping back into their old ways.

Getting to the Root Cause of Addiction

These homes teach them to deal with the root cause of their addiction. During their stay in these homes, they go through counseling and therapy to find themselves again and realize the meaning and purpose of their lives. It makes them want to go back to their lives before addiction ruined it for them. It also gives them the power and motivation to face life’s challenges without returning to quick fixes like drugs and alcohol. Sober living houses give individuals a reason to believe in themselves and that they could face the world again and handle it better and differently than what they did before.

Arizona sober living spaces are sometimes recommended for individuals with psychological or medical health problems and those who have problems quitting substance abuse and drug or alcohol addiction on their own. However, typically it’s recommended that there is at least an intensive outpatient program that the patient is working with simultaneously, particularly one with dual diagnosis outpatient care.

Sober living homes are also perfect for people who have undergone rehab once or several times and for people who do not have a proper support system in their living environment. Sober living homes are also great for people who want a more personal approach than going in for clinical counseling treatments.
