Sober living homes are often viewed as the transitional period between recovery and living on your own. For many people, going straight from the rehabilitation center to living on your own is too much stress and worry to bare. If you are concerned about living on your own so soon after recovery, sober living homes may be the best option for you.
At the sober living home, you will pay your own way and be around others who have gone through the same ordeal as you have. All of the residents in the home become support systems for each other, and you learn to live independently while remaining sober. The homes vary in size and location, with some of them having just a handful of rooms, while others have dozens of rooms available. Some residents might have their own bedroom, while others share rooms dorm-room style. This depends largely on the type of sober living home you choose as well as how much you pay for rent.
