How Halfway House Living Works
Our halfway house provides a supportive environment and a similar sense of routine that provides the platform as one returns to an independent, productive life of sobriety.
Every month that a client chooses to live in a halfway house improves their chance of remaining clean by 10%.
Early recovery provides a variety of problems and challenges. Halfway houses help residents feel less isolated and overwhelmed when they are living with a group of people who are all striving to start life anew. The camaraderie developed amongst residents as they pursue the common goal of sobriety can build friendships and support that can last for life.
While most people who have completed primary treatment feel sincerely motivated, and promise to follow all suggestions, people who do this together as a group, find it easier and far more fun to achieve and maintain.
