Community housing is one of the most important decisions a patient will make when going from detox, inpatient, or residential to outpatient care. Community housing is the sober living component of outpatient treatment, whether it is PHP, IOP or OP. When you live in community housing, you are adding an extra layer of accountability to your life and ensuring that you will be surrounded by a group of like-minded men or women.
Community housing is conveniently located close to our center, in a neighborhood that feels like home. Patients are free to build ties within the community at neighborhood events, volunteer at local organizations, and spend time with people in their recovery network. Patients may attend group therapy at the center, attend outside meetings with community housing aids, or begin working and attending school during the day. Community housing aids will assist individuals in learning to live a fun and fulfilling life without drugs and alcohol.
The environment patients return to should be focused on building the skills one needs for long term success. Community housing is our way of helping patients to be a part of a drug-free, recovery-focused environment with like-minded peers and an extra layer of accountability.
