Your commitment to living free of addiction doesn't stop once you leave Above It All Treatment Center – it is a life long journey of ups and downs that you don't have to face alone.
After completion of the inpatient program, it is common for individuals to opt to enter into a transitional, sober living house. This sober living takes place in housing near the Above It All Center, and is paid for by the client. Here you can still participate in the groups from your program, practice your 12 steps and continue your personal growth along your journey; the only difference now is you have your own driver and house manager.
For whatever reason, many clients opt to extend their stay for various lengths of time. You may consider this option as a way to continue your group time or as a way to transition from the intense rehab program back into normal life. These houses are completely furnished with linens, pots and pans, furniture, drapes and everything else you need – except food, you are responsible for your own food.
One of the life skills you learn, is to be responsible for your own needs, so buying your own food, and paying 'rent' are among these responsibilities. The cost for staying at the sober living house is $275.00 a week, which includes all the utilities, as well as the gas and driver to get you to and from your meetings. The rent is paid in advance, $1,000.00/month plus a deposit. There is no time limit to your stay here; most clients choose to stay between 2 and 3 months.
Transitioning into normal life via a sober living house is not a requirement, but the change from intensive drug and alcohol treatment to normal life can be a scary and daunting switch. If you think that such a change may be more than you can handle, please talk to us about the opportunity to stay with us longer in our sober living house.
