After inpatient and residential addiction treatment, many individuals need an additional layer of support and encouragement as they continue working on their recovery. The freedom that comes with leaving inpatient rehab can also come with stressors and triggers. However, by choosing to live sober in community housing, you’ll be connected to a network of other recovery-focused peers. Since group therapy is a foundational piece of addiction treatment, in community housing, you can continue to grow alongside others. At Georgia Addiction Treatment Center, when you’re ready for the next step in your recovery, we offer a community housing program.
What Is a Community Housing Program?
Community housing sometimes referred to as “sober living” or “recovery housing,” is one tool that those in recovery can use as they transition out of residential treatment and back into more freedom and responsibility. Studies even show that these programs can help those in recovery to avoid relapse. Many addiction treatment centers, such as Georgia Addiction Treatment Center, offer community housing programs.
Some individuals in recovery from addiction need more accountability and support. One of the benefits of community housing programs is they provide this support while they continue with outpatient treatment. Another benefits of community housing is that those in recovery can go back to work or school while receiving help. In community housing, you have the option of maintaining those responsibilities while in a supportive environment. Since everyone in your residence is also in recovery, they’re uniquely able to encourage. During this time, you’ll also find ways to have fun together without drugs or alcohol.
Addiction treatment programs typically utilize group therapy, which might look like 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous. And in community housing, you’ll find that kind of support around the clock. You’ll be able to both give and receive support from your peers as you recover.
