Although the first step to achieving sobriety from drugs or alcohol is completing a detox and addiction treatment program, this is not the end of your journey. A key component in staying sober after rehab is a sober living program.
Returning back to your pre-treatment living arrangements and obligations immediately after completing treatment can quickly trigger a relapse. For many people in recovery from a drug or alcohol use disorder, the community and surroundings from before treatment can be challenging to navigate if family and friends do not share the same desire to live a sober lifestyle.
During the reintroduction phase, some of the restrictions and rules start to ease. This allows you to experience more of life outside the sober living community independently. This phase is also designed to test your comfort with relapse prevention skills learned during rehab while providing extra support you may need if exposed to challenging triggers.
The primary purpose of sober living programs is to help you on your journey to staying sober. A significant component of achieving this goal is to assist with ongoing relapse prevention education and skill building. Unfortunately, relapse rates among people in recovery from a drug or alcohol use disorder are as high as 60%. 6
