What is a Recovery Home?
Recovery homes provide opportunities for individuals in early recovery or those who have just complete treatment the opportunity to acclimate into one’s own community. Recovery homes are free from alcohol and drugs.
Recovery homes provide a safe place, compassionate people, and a life full of purpose and fun that doesn’t involve alcohol or drugs. Recovery homes seek to make the transition into the community smoother and successful for each individual.
Sinnissippi Recovery Homes are SUPR licensed treatment facilities staffed 24/7. Residents attend treatment and implement sober living skills with other people in early recovery. The Recovery Homes are currently available to adult men and adult women facing a substance use disorder who need extended support to stay clean and sober.
Our Recovery Homes offer 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?
Sober living homes offer an in-between recovery option that allows you to reinforce the lessons learned in residential treatment. When you returned home did you struggle with the cravings and urges to return to substance use? Do you need a more structured environment with additional supports.
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.
