A sober living home is transitional living, often utilized between inpatient care and independent living, either independently or back with the individual’s family. It is considered a “bridge” to ease the individual back into living on his or her own in the “real world.” It reinforces structure and responsibility, while providing social support to help remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol. It also serves to help the individual prepare for the daily challenges and stressors of everyday life.

Daily Reprieve sober living homes offer more intensive support programs than many sober livings. Directors and staff work with residents to help them develop new skills and coping tools that are designed to avoid relapse. Daily Reprieve Inc. provides more daily structure in residents’ lives. There are guaranteed resources, like resume and career search help, and one-on-one attention is insured. The close contact provides a safe and trigger-free living space for people recovering from substance use disorders.

Daily Reprieve Inc.’s sober living homes recognize that long term sobriety depends on much more than just physical abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Daily Reprieve has requirements that ensure residents put in the work to stay sober and cultivate new values, including responsibility, honesty, and integrity. Qualified staff provides guidance on employment, school, and conflict resolution. Like other sober living homes, Daily Reprieve, Inc. can function as a “bridge” between a treatment center and independent living, but it also a very effective first line option to recovery for addiction.

The most basic and fundamental rule is abstinence from drugs and alcohol—this is enforced via random drug testing. Relapse results in expulsion for the safety of other residents, not only physically, but mentally.

If the resident doesn’t hold a job, attend school full-time, or attend an IOP, there are community volunteer requirements. The requirements for all residents include curfew, completing chores, attending house meetings, and regular attendance at local 12-Step meetings.

Rules regarding jobs and vehicles vary independently depending on the sober living home. Since residents often come to sober living at different points in their sobriety, there might be a period where it is better for the resident to remain unemployed in very early sobriety. However, reentry into the workplace is highly encouraged at Daily Reprieve Inc.’s sober living homes and the staff will provide resume and employment support services.

Rules regarding vehicles also vary depending on the sober living home. At Daily Reprieve, residents can have their vehicle if they are licensed, insured, their car has current registration, and the resident has been sober and clean for 30 days. The number of residents that can have a vehicle at a given residence will vary and it is a privilege that can be taken away if certain rules of the house are broken.

Residency at a sober living home can range from 30-90 days to a year or longer, depending on the specific needs of the individual. Sober living is meant to help the individual build a sturdy foundation of recovery before transitioning to independent life post-treatment. It is a process that depends largely on the behavior, attitude, length of sobriety, and other characteristics of the individual. As long as you abide by all of the rules, there is not a point where you will be asked to leave.

If you want to become a resident, the first step is simply reaching out. Before making any commitment, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your needs and particular circumstances with the director and staff of the sober living home. Daily Reprieve, Inc. has forms with specific questions to determine an individual’s needs when people enroll. These questions help staff determine your situation, so that they can be prepared to address specific needs the potential residents may have. They will ask questions about your addiction, how you used, and which substances you used. There are some specific requirements that must be met.

For the majority of cases, the individual will be asked to leave the residence for three days, then retest. However, each relapse will ultimately be handled on a case-to-case basis.

In some cases, when a individual’s relapse presented a threat to the sobriety of other members of the home, or if the community consensus is that the individual seems uninvested in their own sobriety, we will ask them to leave immediately.

It is important to understand that a sober living home is by definition a place for clean and sober people. By moving into a sober living home, residents are agreeing to remain sober while living there. This agreement is important not only for that particular resident, but for the safety of all of the other residents who are hoping to live in a supportive and substance-free home. When a resident relapses, they are not only demonstrating a lack of commitment to their own sobriety, but they are violating the trust of other residents who depend on them. Your individual house members will have input on your future in the house.
