Returning home after addiction treatment can feel like a jolt to your system. Suddenly, you’re back in the same substance-ridden environment and faced with familiar triggers and cravings. Relapse can be difficult to avoid if you return to everyday life too soon.
At The Raleigh House, we know how difficult it can be to reenter the “real world” after addiction treatment. This is why we offer a sober living program in Denver that gives you the ability to transition back to daily life at your own pace.
During this part of your recovery journey, you’ll live in one of our sober living houses with other people who are recovering from addiction just like you. You’ll participate in meditation and mindfulness, process groups and other therapy sessions from 9am – 2:30pm. After that, you’ll go to the gym to exercise and participate in Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
Unlike inpatient treatment where you were completely immersed in healing, sober living is less restrictive and acts as an enhancement to your recovery. At The Raleigh House in Colorado, our sober living program offers the following benefits:
You’ll participate in process groups where you’ll talk about and work through topics like substance abuse, trauma, attachment and family.
Your process groups will include all the same people, allowing you to build powerful connections that can support your recovery and motivate you to stay sober.
Your treatment sessions will also include topics like nutrition and art therapy. These can help you learn valuable life skills like how to cook pro-recovery meals and new ways to cope with stress.
You’ll be able to come and go as you please, giving you the chance to participate in normal life while still having a safe, sober base to return to at the end of the day.
A key to staying sober is having a strong support system to keep you from falling into your old drug and alcohol habits. Our sober living house in Denver, Colorado gives you the opportunity to build life-long friendships with people who have gone through similar struggles and know how important it is to stay sober.
But it isn’t just the people you’re living with and spending time with in treatment who can help you on your recovery journey. The weekend barbecues at The Ranch and our alumni group meetings on Tuesday evenings are filled with individuals who understand your struggles and are excited to support your recovery.
Your family and friends are also a major part of your support system. We provide countless opportunities for you to reconnect with family members and heal from the damage of addiction together.
This support system can prevent you from feeling isolated, help you abstain from substance abuse and encourage you to pursue new goals and passions you wouldn’t have dreamed of doing when struggling with alcohol or drug addiction.
If you’re concerned about jumping back into daily life or have already struggled with adjusting to life back home, a sober living house can take the pressure off and help ease that transition.
