What is a Recovery Home?
Reentry from residential care back to one’s own community can be abrupt and can contribute to an increase in the chance for a relapse and a need to go back to residential care. Individuals who are in recovery still face challenges which are possible triggers for relapse.
The Recovery Home is for individuals committed to their sobriety. It seeks to make the transition from residential treatment to the community smoother and increases the success of the recovery process for anyone committed to their sobriety.
Sinnissippi Recovery Home is DASA licensed treatment facility staffed 24/7. Residents attend treatment and implement sober living skills with other people in early recovery.
The Recovery Home currently is available to adult men facing a substance use disorder who need extended support to stay clean and sober.
The Recovery Home offers a healthy recovery environment and support. The length of stay can vary based on the needs of the individual, typically 3 to 9 months on average.
Do I need Sober Living?
Did you go to inpatient treatment to stop using alcohol and other substances? If you returned home, would you be likely to start using again? Do you need to develop a daily routine and strong recovery support to help you live life sober? If you answered yes to any of the questions, then the Recovery Home may be what you need.
For people in early recovery from addiction, there is so much to regain and recover in order to rebuild their lives. The Recovery Home is a therapeutic living environment and a place to practice recovery skills while living in a sober, safe, and structured living environment.
