No More Excuses. Period.

If you're at this website you've probably long ago answered 'yes' to the question, 'do I have a drug and/or alcohol problem?'

Above, we've posted a list of common excuses that people consistently give us as reason to not get help from drug or alcohol abuse. To you, these might be real problems impacting your life, but we see it a bit differently. The problems don't arise from trying to get help, the problems arise from having a drug problem. These are all problems that will only get worse, but never better with time.

If you really want to quit, a dedication to a longer-term addiction recovery home gives you the best chance to succeed by an overwhelming statistical margin. Think about it. Where do you think you'd have the best chance at staying sober: by keeping the same circle of drug-using friends and staying at home, or by living in an addiction recovery home with a support system of twenty people that are all trying to achieve the same goal?

Why Recovery Homes are Better than 30-Day Rehabs

Recovery Homes are typically about 10%-25% the cost of a typical 30-day drug rehab program. This lowered price enables addicts the ability to stay in a sober environment for significantly longer than thirty days. The math is simple: the longer you stay in contained sober environment, the better your chances are of remaining sober.

Why 30-Day Rehabs are Sometimes Better

For dual diagnosis and instances in which an addict requires the full-time supervision of a doctor, a 30-day rehab is often recommended to assist in what can often be an uncomfortable withdrawal period.
However, entrance into a recovery home is still recommended immediately after a stay at a 30-day rehab.

Daily Life In A Sober Living Home?

Guests at sober living homes typically participate in group therapy along with tasks around the house. Many sober living homes offer group therapy, family therapy, and one-on-one sessions. The goal of these sessions is typically to identify and examine the behavior or circumstances that have contributed to addiction.??Many homes eventually allow guests to have jobs while living in the home, which can be a great opportunity for people to continue their daily lives while spending free time in an environment that facilitates a sober living home.

Picking the right Recovery Home

Picking the right recovery home is extremely important. Some recovery homes can lack the proper staff, rules, and knowledge to facilitate overcoming a drug and alcohol addiction. If you contact a member of our staff, we can introduce to only highly credible sober living homes in your area.



Excuses:

I can't afford a recovery home.

Are you sure? You might be confusing recovery homes with drug rehab programs, which can cost upwards of 30k/month. Sober living/Recovery homes typically cost not much more than a mortgage or rent payment.


I won't have fun being sober.

Are you having fun on drugs? If you're like most of the people in recovery homes, drugs are destroying (or have already destroyed) your life. It's surprising how much fun life can be sober. Did you ever have fun playing as a child? Chances are you were sober then, too.


Now isn't a good time.

It's never a good time. There will be always be a convenient excuse preventing you from getting off drugs and alcohol. It will never be easier to recover than today.


I'll do it on my own.

Good luck, and we mean that. Statistics show that your chances of succeeding are about 5 times greater with the help of a recovery home. If you're unable to do it on your own, we'll be here for you.


I have a pet.

You'd be amazed at how many friends/family would be willing to watch your pet if it meant you getting sober.


What about my family

Your family deserves to have you free of drugs. If you have children, we can work with you to figure out a plan of action. Being away from your family is a small price to pay to give your family the life they deserve.


I have a job

Most jobs surprisingly understand and will help you. If not, is remaining on drugs for the rest of your working days a realistic solution? We hope not. If you leave your job, you can often start working while staying at a recovery homes.


I don't know where to start

You already have. We strongly encourage you to contact us. There's no charge, and we will work with you to find the right solution.
