What is Sober Living?
Sober living is the next step in the addiction recovery process for many addicts who have entered residential or inpatient treatment, received treatment for their addiction and are ready to continue moving forward toward a sober lifestyle that they can live and maintain on their own. For those living in Maryland, sober houses and sober living environments provide residential housing that is shared amongst a group of others who are in varied stages of recovery from addiction and are working toward similar goals of sustained sobriety.
Sober Living is NOT for Everyone
It’s important to realize that sober living is not the same as treatment. If you are heavily addicted to drugs or alcohol or you have not already completed a safe, effective detoxification program, sober living is probably not the ideal next step for you. Each sober living home in Maryland does require that residents remain sober while they are living in the home and they will provide random drug or alcohol screenings to ensure that their residents remain clean and sober.
If you don’t already have at least a few weeks of sobriety under your belt, it’s a good idea to take some time, detox and get treatment before moving on to sober living. Sober living can be helpful when it comes to transitioning back into society as a newly recovered addict but it is not meant to provide a scapegoat to get out of having to get real treatment for the problem.
Rules of the Sober House
Each sober house has a set of rules that residents are expected to accept when they enter the sober living environment. Violation of the rules that are provided will result in consequences which can range from fines to eviction depending on the individual guidelines set forth by the facility, the individual circumstances of the situation and various other factors.
All residents of the sober house must remain clean and SOBER. Using drugs or alcohol while living in Maryland sober house constitutes a direct violation of the rules and will typically result in eviction from the property. Furthermore, drug or alcohol use by residents of the home creates dangers for other residents and could derail their recovery which is why most sober living environments are not lenient when it comes to the explicit rule of abstaining from all drug and alcohol use while residing in the home.
