WHAT IS THE COST OF LIVING ALONE IN PLANO?
Not only is living alone more expensive, but it does not provide the most important aspect of sober living at Real Deal, the accountability. Living alone does not offer live-in managers whose sole focus is to manage chores, meetings, and residents. Nor does living alone have the element of community action- people who operate as a unit towards a common goal.
ABOUT SOBER LIVING
The importance of inpatient addiction treatment is well-known. But returning from treatment to normal life can make it difficult to stay sober. And this is the most common time for relapse to occur. That’s where sober living comes in.
Sober living usually comes between inpatient treatment and a fully independent life. Residents are free to leave to attend work, school, or outpatient treatment. But they return home every night to an environment with support and accountability. Sober living often has an in-house manager, regular drug testing, and work and meeting attendance requirements. So, the support is obvious. These are just a few of the many services we offer.
How Does Sober Living in Plano Help You Maintain Sobriety?
Completing addiction treatment is an exhilarating experience for most people. They feel proud of their accomplishment and excited about a bright future without drugs or alcohol — and they should.
Completing treatment is a major step toward leading a happier, healthier life. However, it is not unusual for a sense of worry and doubt to creep in after the initial excitement wears down.
The thought of maintaining sobriety outside of a treatment center is daunting. Some people do not have a sober support system to return to, and even if they do, they might not yet be ready to handle the normal stresses of daily life.
Sober living homes provide a secure environment where residents can slowly transition from the high level of accountability they experienced at a treatment center to independent living.
Having the chance to practice the skills learned during treatment is only one of the ways sober living in Plano can help you maintain long-term sobriety. Living in a sober home also gives you time to repair the key relationships in your life, including relationships with employers or teachers who are integral to your future plans.
Residents interact with many of the same peers and specialists they came to know and trust during treatment. Every person’s recovery journey is different, but strong peer support can make all the difference as you learn to navigate through life without depending on substances.
Sober living is not an “easy ride” or a way of shirking responsibilities. In fact, it teaches you how to be a more responsible, accountable person, which is the basis of sobriety.
What Is a Recovery House?
A recovery house, also known as a sober living house, is a form of transitional housing for people who have completed addiction treatment at a residential center or who are currently undergoing outpatient treatment.
Many people think of addiction treatment as the final word on recovery. People with substance use disorders and their loved ones understand that treatment is only one stage of lasting recovery. Spending time in a recovery house helps to smooth the transition from actively participating in therapies on a daily basis to returning to a (new) normal life.
Sober living homes provide the resources you need to continue repairing key relationships, find a job, find housing, continue your education, and learn to be a better parent. All of this takes place as clients practice the sobriety and interpersonal skills they learned during treatment.
Accountability and personal responsibility are expected of every resident in a Real Deal Sober Living recovery house. If you’re considering staying with us, expect to follow a schedule, participate in household chores, undergo drug testing, and continue with therapy and accountability meetings.
The decision to live in sober housing also shows your loved ones you are serious about remaining sober. Too many people with substance use disorders have experienced the “revolving door” of relapse almost immediately after leaving treatment.
Addiction is a chronic disease that requires constant monitoring. Practicing your new sober life in a recovery house reduces the risk of relapse in the short term and helps you build a stronger foundation for long-term sobriety.
The Benefits of Pet-Friendly Sober Living
If you’re a pet owner, you already understand how close the bond between animals and humans can be. If you have recently completed 30, 60, 90, or more days of treatment in a residential program, you have no doubt been missing your furry friend immensely and have been concerned about their care.
The option to live in a pet-friendly sober living home could greatly impact the decisions you make when creating your aftercare plan.
Not every recovery home offers a pet-friendly option. We understand the important role a pet plays in a person’s life, and we also understand how valuable a pet can be to the process of recovery. That’s why we offer pet-friendly accommodations for those whose furry companions meet certain safety and hygiene requirements.
One of the most profound lessons of recovery is the importance of helping others. Giving back to the recovery community is one way people stay active and committed to their process. However, there is more than one way to “give back.” Caring for a pet also teaches lessons about empathy, unconditional love, and acceptance.
Even sober living residents who aren’t directly responsible for pet care benefit from having a pet in the house. Playing fetch, going for a pack walk, and being on the receiving end of an affectionate head bump can be healing experiences.
Interacting with a pet has been shown to reduce stress, decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety, and make people feel comforted during difficult times. All of these benefits are important to people who are recovering from addiction.

Addiction is hard enough to deal with when you have professional help. And trying to tackle it alone is a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, this is a lesson that many people have learned the hard way. That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of drug rehab services. So, if someone you care about is struggling with drug addiction, reach out for help.
Checking in to an inpatient drug rehab program can save a life. Those who stay in a drug rehab program for at least thirty days have a much greater chance of staying sober than those who don’t. And longer-term treatment programs have an even greater rate of success. Consider an inpatient rehab for your loved one. It could save a life.
What most people know about alcohol rehab comes from celebrity gossip, movies, and TV shows. Typically, people picture a rich person getting in trouble for drinking and checking into some kind of tropical resort where they sit on the beach and meditate. But reality looks a little bit different.
There are alcohol rehab services available all over the country. And most of them aren’t tropical resorts. Patients typically check in for a month, three months, or sometimes even a year. And intensive treatment includes a lot of elements. Furthermore, counseling, therapy, group workshops, and attending recovery meetings are crucial. Inpatient rehab is one of the best tools available for dealing with alcoholism.
