Drug or alcohol addiction can be devastating. It often ruins relationships, families suffer, financial situations are torn apart and when you make the leap of faith to attempt recovery, the struggles of living a sober life are often too much to handle immediately following treatment. Many addicts relapse as soon as they exit treatment simply because they do not have a secure, clean and supportive home to live in. Sober living homes in Idaho take away some of the pressures of living sober after treatment by providing safe, clean and supportive homes where those in recovery can share their triumphs and their struggles with one another.
What is a Sober House?
A sober house is a group home that provides a clean and sober environment for recovering addicts to live. Most of the time, living in a sober house is much more affordable than living alone because the rent, utilities and other living expenses are split amongst the residents of the home making the overall cost much lower than the cost of maintaining an entire home individually. Most of the time, sober houses are privately owned except for in certain circumstances in which a treatment center or charity organization owns and operates a sober house.
What are the Rules?
There are many rules that come with living in a sober house in Idaho or any other part of the country for that matter. The primary rule that is ALWAYS the same from one sober house to the next is the fact that all residents who live in the sober living environment are expected to be SOBER. Some sober houses will evict an individual if they do not pass a drug or alcohol screening while others will give the resident a couple of chances and will provide other means of punishment if they fail a substance abuse screen—the way that rules are enforced will differ from one sober living home to the next.
Most of the time Idaho sober houses have a curfew that ensures residents are not coming and going from the home throughout the night. Various other rules may also be enforced on a case by case or home by home basis. When you decide to move into a sober house, make sure you are ready to stay sober, follow the rules, have respect for others and continue forward with recovery—if you aren’t ready to do these things, sober living may not be right for you.
