What's the difference between going home and sober living?
The difference between going home and going to sober living is huge. Firstly, when you go back to the same circumstances, things are likely to remain the same. After all, if you want to change, you will have to change. Right? Secondly, going home doesn’t provide the structure sober living does. Thirdly, the commitment of sober living plays a drastic role in creating a new life.
The benefits of sober living are incalculable when compared to going home. Some people have this great delusion that getting 30, 60, 90 days of treatment will drastically change their life. However, at some point, you will have to face reality. This means applying what you learned in treatment. Of course, you can do that anywhere, but the likelihood of maintaining sobriety is drastically downgraded when you do not plan accordingly. If you don’t believe us, look at the facts.
