Why a sober living/halfway house?

The scourge of chemical abuse and the consequences of addictions

are well publicized and most of us know that we should not be

complacent about this problem. What is less understood is how

difficult the process of rehabilitation is, with discouraging long-term

recovery rates as low as 2% or 3%, reported by many rehab centers.

Where ongoing support over the longer term is available to recovering addicts, results are more positive.

For instance, research shows a 55% recovery rate when primary

rehab treatment is followed up by a sober living homeA residential aftercare program is therefore critical for the transition that every recovering addict needs to make.  A Sober living home provides

recovering addicts and alcoholics  with a safe and clean

environment which bridges the gap from a drug or alcohol

treatment facility back into a daily living routine.
