Sober Living in Atlanta, Georgia
Sober Living Options & Aftercare
What is a Sober Living Home?
This is the time period where relapse is most likely to occur, and can be the most mentally challenging. Sober living homes have strict rules and supervision to keep those living in the house accountable and support them through the reintegration phase. While there is still an aspect of independence in a sober living home, such as the ability to work and have free time, there will be mandatory meetings and check in’s. Most sober living homes have a curfew and regular drug screenings. In most cases, a supervisor will live in the house or the community with the sober residents to run the meetings, keep everyone in check with curfews and mandatory events, and to be a supportive face in a difficult time.
Each sober living home will operate differently and have its own set of specific rules. As a resident in a sober living home in Atlanta, you are free to come and go for work, family, business, or leisure activity as long as you follow whatever house rules have been set. When joining a sober living home you are committing to your sobriety, and likely signing an agreement that you are only allowed to stay in the house so long as you remain drug free and in recovery. If someone in the house is not committed and/or he or she is not ready for recovery, it can cause issues with the recovery process for the entire house. For this reason, most sober living communities will not accept anyone who hasn’t received treatment and will ask you to leave if you are not willing to follow the rules.

Why Choose Sober Living in Atlanta, Georgia?
Sober living provides these aspects alongside the independence of life before treatment to ensure a smooth transition back to society. Environment plays a huge role in one’s ability to stay sober, and going straight back to an unhealthy home life can derail the hard work and effort a treatment program can provide. Sober homes and aftercare allow you to re-integrate into normal life at a slower pace so those in recovery can take their time feeling confident in their ability to maintain sobriety under any circumstances.There is no rule for how long you have to stay, so people can feel assured that they are allowed to stay and leave as they feel necessary. It’s also beneficial to have a supervisor checking in with you, suggesting meetings if they feel you need extra support, and drug screenings to make sure you’re staying drug free. Being surrounded by like minded individuals with the same mission is the best way to stay positive and determined in your long term recovery.
