Some people also say why not staying longer on Inpatient facility, unfortunately that is not the solution to avoid relapse situation. Because first reason staying over in a Residential care will be an expensive affair and this is not about over stay it’s about the resources you get in sober-living homes. This is also known as half way home, it provides sober environment to the recovered addict in between inpatient and returning home Journey. It provides them environment with more care and peer support. As you have all certified experts and professionals to guide the patient at that stage. And this support is hard to be found at the addict’s home if they return direct after Inpatient treatment.

Sober living homes are run with certain rules and patients are allowed to go to work during the day time and are suppose to return home by a certain time as fixed, there are drug tests conducted on random basis to confirm that they are not back into substance abuse. The residents of sober living homes are independently responsible for whatever they do.

The sober homes are run by group of people who often pay their part of rent and other expenses, just like we live in a regular life or home.
