Addiction Treatment Center
…It is so hard to truly express the gratitude I have for this specific house. I won’t share them, but what I can tell you—if you’re reading this—you’re looking for a place you can trust. If you’re serious, this is that place.
The program is a great way to integrated back into life as a sober man/woman. Real deal also does a great job of getting men and women plugged into the recovery community and proves life can still be exciting while sober
Real Deal is an amazing program for men and women who are ready to completely change their lives. I would not recommend another place!
WHAT IS THE COST OF LIVING ALONE IN RICHARDSON?
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.
BENEFITS OF OUR RICHARDSON SOBER LIVING
Richardson is home to many job opportunities, especially at big companies. Richardson has over 10 large corporate employers. Each of which has at least 1500 employees. The biggest employer is State Farm, with over 8000 employees in Richardson alone!
Richardson has many rail stations and almost 12,000 bus stops. That’s right, 12,000! With the ability to get anywhere in the city on public transit, it makes living in Richardson a no-brainer.
Despite being called the University of Texas at Dallas, UTD is actually in the middle of Richardson. UTD is a phenomenal university with a great reputation both in the community and nationally. In fact, UTD was ranked #1 in universities under 50 years old! If getting into a four-year university is difficult initially, have no fear, since there are several community college options in Richardson. Richland College is a great place to start your journey to further your education.
Things To Do
Being sober means no more drugs and alcohol– we have to start enjoying the other great things life has to offer. Namely, the delicious food. Richardson has many delicious restaurants and is well-known for its diverse Asian community– which means a lot of great Asian places! From awesome parks like Cottonwood Park (right next to our office), to CityLine adventures, Richardson is full of fun. benefiting from being mostly suburban Richardson has fewer lines and crowds!
Reasons to Consider Sober Living in Richardson
When you complete a treatment program, you have the choice to return to living independently or to first spend time as a resident in a sober living home.
For many recovery patients, it’s helpful to continue their aftercare in sober living because it provides a smoother transition from the secure environment of a treatment center to daily life.
There are a number of reasons why you may not feel ready or comfortable returning to your previous living arrangements. For instance, it’s an unfortunate reality that addiction can cause family members to become estranged, and “home” may no longer be a healthy place or one where patients are welcome.
But even if supportive friends and family members are ready to welcome you home, you may not yet be feeling secure enough in your sobriety to venture too far from the support system you’ve come to rely on during recovery.
Opting for sober living in Richardson gives you an extended opportunity to practice the new life skills you learned in your treatment program. In many cases, residents live with at least some of the peers they have grown to know and trust while in treatment.
You might also continue to meet with the same therapists and addiction specialists. This continuum of care helps to reinforce the lessons learned during the recovery experience.
Residents in our sober house locations continue the work of rebuilding their lives. They have the resources they need to secure employment, find permanent housing, and continue repairing the key relationships in their lives.
Sober living in Richardson is like a safety net, where residents can practice the balance between freedom and accountability.
What Happens in a Recovery House?
A recovery house, or sober house, is a safe and welcoming place to continue your recovery journey. Receiving treatment is a giant leap toward reclaiming your health, but it is only the first step in a long, happy life free of addiction. And a recovery house can help you continue on that journey.
It is more than just a place to live. Services like sober living facilities and outpatient programs provide essential resources for those who have completed treatment but need continued accountability and access to mental health care.
Living in a recovery house helps you learn how to meet day-to-day obligations. In our sober living homes, residents keep a daily schedule that includes daily meditation, participation in accountability meetings, and taking the necessary steps to rebuild their lives.
If needed, residents can receive assistance with all stages of job searching as well as making arrangements for future housing. Sober living homes also provide the resources needed to continue repairing broken relationships with friends and family members.
Making the transition to a recovery house also shows family members you are serious about your sobriety. As you are adjusting to a sober life, your loved ones have the opportunity to adjust to the new sober you.
Support may be the greatest gift found in a recovery house. Not only do you receive the guidance of staff and mental health professionals, but you also receive the support of peers you may have already come to know and care about during treatment.
Having a strong network of like-minded peers can make all the difference when it comes time to leave the safety net of sober living and spread your wings again.
The Benefits of Pet-Friendly Sober Living
Pet owners know how impactful the bond between animals and humans can be. This is why pet owners who undergo 30-, 60-, or 90-day residential treatment programs can have a difficult time being separated from their furry friends, and they may worry if their pet is getting proper care.
When it comes time to arrange aftercare, the thought of even more separation might dissuade them from making the choices that are best for their health. A pet-friendly sober living home can make all the difference.
We not only understand how important a pet can be, but we also understand how valuable taking care of a pet can be to your recovery.
Service to others is one of the most profound lessons taught in recovery. Offering non-judgmental compassion and acceptance to people can be a positive, healing experience for both the giver and the receiver. The same can be true of pet care.
Caring for a pet requires dependability, discipline, acceptance, and patience. These are all qualities people in recovery need to practice.
Even the residents in a pet-friendly sober living home that aren’t directly responsible for a pet can benefit from their presence. Studies have shown that spending time with animals helps to ease depression and loneliness and can help people feel more confident.
“Giving back” typically refers to giving your time and energy back to the recovery community, but there are many ways to be of service. Allowing sober living roommates to enjoy the benefits of your pet’s unconditional love is one of them.
Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, of course! We are a pet-friendly sober living company.
Absolutely! We do not believe in total restriction from reality. That never ends well. We have success because we merge reality with recovery principals simultaneously.
Yes! However, we usually wait a few weeks to see if they are able to secure employment themselves. It usually works out better if they do.
It’s easy for someone unfamiliar with the world of addiction and recovery to get confused when they hear the term “sober living.” Isn’t sober living just another form of addiction rehab? Well, yes and no. Sober living is different from inpatient rehab in that residents are living in the “real world.” They are still in an environment where they are surrounded by others in recovery and supported by a house manager. They benefit from accountability like regular drug testing, mandatory meeting requirements, and curfews. But they are free to venture out during the day to attend work or school. Sober living, among the core services we offer, is a key step in teaching those in recovery to function without the need for drugs and alcohol.
When we see someone experiencing drug addiction, we typically think they need to attend rehab to get better. It’s a thought that’s almost become part of our culture, especially today, with high rates of addiction around the country. But what does going to rehab really mean? Drug rehab services typically consist of a treatment center, often with clinically trained staff, where patients check in for an extended period of time ranging all the way from one month up to a year. Patients who check in are able to detox in a safe environment while learning the skills they need to stay sober from trained professionals. Typical services might include individual and group therapy, getting integrated with the local recovery community, and workshops on the tools needed to navigate relationships in sobriety.
When someone finds themselves unable to stop drinking once they start, or getting out of control when they drink and suffering consequences, they may think they just need to cut down. But what happens when they find that they can’t? That’s when it becomes a good idea to take advantage of alcohol rehab services. Alcoholism is a disease, and there is no cure—there’s no way to start drinking like a normal person again. But there are many evidence-based treatment options, and the most effective ones start with an inpatient rehab center. Inpatient alcohol rehab gives those with alcoholism the tools they need to stay sober and keep their disease at bay—one day at a time.
