West Plano sober living at its finest
There are many advantages to sober living, especially when compared to living alone, with family, or with friends. We tried to keep it simple and added a list of the most important benefits. To learn more about the benefits of sober living click here.
Community. When we enter sober living, we are immediately living with other people in recovery. This is unique compared to living alone or with others who are not in recovery, because we are forced to face the disease of addiction head-on. In sober living we learn to use the group presence to our advantage. We learn to work and grow together. A strong community is key to individual success in recovery.
Structure. Our residents quickly realize that following simple rules is extremely important to success in recovery. Waking up and making our beds, attending meetings daily, and focusing on prayer and meditation regularly is crucial for the longevity of our recovery. With the structure we are taught, we will find joy, patience, and long-term sobriety.
Accountability. Accountability is essential to success in recovery, and it’s impossible to avoid accountability in sober living. Members of our community live together under the same roof. Weekly drug and breathalyzer testing keeps everyone honest. In our weekly accountability groups, everyone must examine their own behavior and how it affects others.
Learning Sober living
It’s a common misconception that a short stint in rehab is all that’s needed for recovery. If only it were that easy. The truth is, the end of treatment isn’t the end of the recovery process—it’s just the beginning. In fact, it’s the single riskiest moment for a newly sober person to relapse. That’s why sober living exists. Instead of returning back to their old lives, and all of the risk and temptation that go along with that, residents are eased into living in the real world with support, accountability, and most importantly, a recovery community at their backs.
A word on drug rehab
To say drug addiction is a serious problem in modern society would be an understatement. It’s an epidemic. Every day, lives are lost, and families are broken apart as a direct result of drug addiction. If a loved one is struggling with drug addiction, the best thing you can possibly do is take immediate action. While drug rehab may seem like an extreme step, it is truly the only good option for someone who is in the depths of addiction. There is a light at the end of the tunnel—and the best way to get there is by using methods that are proven to work.
A word on alcohol rehab
Alcoholism is a disease that can affect anyone. Rich, poor, young, old—it’s an illness that does not discriminate. It’s also progressive, long-term, and crippling. For anyone struggling with alcoholism, achieving sobriety should be the number one priority. There are many pathways to recovery, but the easiest ones all begin with a stay in an alcohol rehab facility. There, residents will learn the skills they need to prosper and handle everything life throws at them—all without ever taking another drink.
