Transitioning from addiction to clean living can be a difficult, frightening, and lonely experience; it’s important that you are comfortable throughout the process. Fortunately, there are many sober living homes in Orange County that can play a part in easing you back into a substance-free lifestyle.

Why is Sober Living Necessary?

When you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, it becomes a driving force in your life. It often affects your ability to function and deal with daily stressors. Eventually, it may even eliminate your desire or ability to socialize with others, including friends, family, and coworkers.

In rehab, you’ll learn new ways to handle emotions and situations without alcohol or drugs. However, this can be challenging for many people and the risk of relapse is often at its worst early in the rehab process. Sober living communities provide a safe, comfortable, and highly-structured place for individuals to begin their transition to drug-free living with the guidance of counselors and the support of others who are also recovering from addiction.

Why Orange County?

Both our treatment facilities and the neighboring sober living communities are located in Orange County, and for good reason.

Sunny Southern California can be helpful to your state of mind during the recovery process because of its proximity to major attractions like Disneyland, the beach, countless hiking trails, parks, museums, and theaters. This wealth of activity may spark new interests that you can explore during your stay in your sober living home. Orange County activities, attractions, and lifestyles may even inspire you to live a healthier and more active life.

How Does Sober Living Work?

When you stay at an Orange County sober living home, you’ll be in an environment that is both structured and supportive. You’ll be expected to follow guidelines and you’ll be held accountable for your actions. During your stay, you may have a private or semi-private room in a house or townhouse that has all of the features you would expect in a home. This includes a washer and dryer, Internet access, hardwood floors, flat-screen televisions, and even a gourmet kitchen.

While staying in a sober living home, you will not be allowed to use or bring any mind- or mood-altering substances into the house, including over-the-counter items such as mouthwash, which may include alcohol. Regular urine testing is required to ensure that no one in the home has relapsed. Additionally, you’ll be required to continue your addiction counseling sessions. Failure to uphold your responsibilities or follow rules may result in dismissal.
