SOBER LIVING HOUSING PROGRAMS IN Nashville
SOBER LIVING IN Nashville: CHOOSE RECOVERY UNPLUGGED
When a person is in an outpatient addiction treatment in Nashville for substance use disorders or has completed their time in inpatient rehab and wants to live in a place with the same structure and support, a sober living home (sometimes called a halfway house) is a great option. This environment is usually a place with multiple sober residents who live together as roommates, with oversight from a house manager.
All sober homes are different, with their own rules and amenities. Some homes offer a lot of freedom, while others are strict with curfews and rules. Some homes may come with nursing staff, psychiatric caregivers, or other medical help. There are luxury homes you can move into and bare-bones apartments that only provide the necessities. You will likely be expected to take care of yourself, cook your meals, do your own laundry, and clean up after yourself as you would when living with roommates. A sober living arrangement aims to ensure you have a place to go at the end of the day that is 100% free of drugs and alcohol and supports life in recovery to help prevent you from experiencing a relapse.
When you rehabilitate with Recovery Unplugged, there are several levels of care in outpatient treatment available that are not inpatient treatment programs. These options include our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs, allowing you to live outside the facility, either at home or in a sober living facility. Our team will provide you with referrals to high-quality homes in the area. They will provide a supportive place to live as you receive treatment programs like behavioral therapy, care from medical professionals, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), group counseling, music-assisted treatment, and aftercare with continued sober community connections and outreach.
Your sober living home will be a safe and clean place to call home throughout your rehabilitation and beyond. It will help you deal with the stress, life details, and bureaucracy that life can throw at you as you transition back into everyday life as a person in recovery.
It's never too late to get help
You're worth saving and we're going to help you realize that.
bENEFITS OF SOBER LIVING WITH RECOVERY UNPLUGGED
Living in sober living housing offers many benefits, and joining an outpatient rehabilitation program through Recovery Unplugged provides you with:
- Integrated addiction care in a customized treatment program that you can learn from and then try out immediately as you live your life in the sober home, at work, or while socializing
- Continued trauma-informed care, with access to medical treatments, prescription medications to aid in long-term withdrawal symptom management, therapy, psychiatric care, and other programs as you transition out of rehab and back into the everyday routine
- Access to evidence-based treatments with music infused into all levels of care for a comprehensive and healing experience during outpatient rehab
- Plenty of opportunities to meet up with peers in the recovery community through 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, SMART recovery programs, and our vibrant alumni group meetings and online sessions
- The option of living in the sober home and attending online virtual intensive outpatient programming through our internet-based treatment plans
- The opportunity to re-learn how to live independently by taking care of yourself, paying your own bills, and working or attending school as you try out newly learned life skills
- The support you need to avoid relapsing when times are difficult, with helpful recovery resources in a sober environment
- A completely sober home with strict rules that have real consequences, providing firm boundaries where you need them when it comes to substance abuse, forcing you to take responsibility for your actions and keeping temptation away, aiding in your long-term recovery efforts
During these rehab programs, you will address the underlying causes of your addiction as you gain new coping strategies for stress and triggers. You will create a relapse prevention plan and become empowered to be the person you want to be in life, with care and support from licensed and credentialed therapists, doctors, and other health professionals through treatments and programs, including:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy and other behavioral therapy
- Dual diagnosis treatment plans for co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders
- Evidence-based substance abuse therapy
- Trauma-informed therapy
- Group therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy
- Music therapy and music-assisted treatment
Living in a sober home is an option for people who are not in a residential rehab program but still want the structure of a sober living environment. It is an excellent choice for those in IOP or other outpatient rehab programs who need to return to their jobs, college programs, or other responsibilities while receiving support, continued connections to sober communities, and readily available recovery resources.
Many people try their best to stay sober after leaving our top rehab in Nashville but return to a living situation with roommates or family members who are drinking and using drugs or are otherwise not supportive of a recovery lifestyle, making it much more challenging to stay sober long-term. People in a continued medication-assisted treatment (MAT) plan for tapering off opioids or other substances and those with ongoing mental health issues requiring consistent medication management and supervision will significantly benefit from living in a 100% sober environment.
WOMEN'S SOBER LIVING Nashville
Living in a residence for women's-only sober living in Nashville provides women with a place to stay that is gender-segregated, an important option for many women who have suffered from sexual, emotional, or physical abuse at the hands of men. Staying in a women's-only home will provide a better sense of safety and security, allowing them to open up more to treatment, rebuild their self-esteem and confidence and learn new ways to live independent lives free of drugs and alcohol.
Because certain gender-based stigmas and issues affect women much more often than men, including child care, roles around the house, and child custody issues, many women-only sober residences offer specialty programs aimed at helping through social services and life-skills programs. Women can address the stigmas surrounding addiction within an environment of female empowerment. These homes also offer connections to community resources and foster an environment of communication without silencing, stereotyping, intimidation, and sexual harassment, giving women a safe place to begin to plan their futures and rebuild their lives after drug and alcohol addiction.
MEN'S SOBER LIVING Nashville
Like women, men also have specific gender-based needs that women may not understand. Living in a men's-only gender-segregated sober living home has its benefits for men, including the cultivation of a men's support network from a male perspective that addresses the stereotypes and stigmas of being a man in recovery. Mental health issues, emotions, and trauma can be managed, along with gender-specific issues surrounding violence and toxic masculinity. Men can gain new male friendships that are not based on harmful behaviors and substances. These homes exist not only as a place to live but also as a place to gain community and cement life skills. These include cooking, balancing a budget, and maintaining employment for a complete and well-rounded experience as you continue with your outpatient drug rehab and alcohol rehab, and other recovery activities.
AFTERCARE AND ALUMNI SUPPORT
One of the best features of the Recovery Unplugged network of rehab centers is our incredible aftercare and alumni support community. Because addiction is a chronic disease, you will never be completely "cured" there will always be hard days, mainly if you are triggered by an event or hit bumps in the road due to temptation or stress. Along with a strong relapse prevention plan, having a community of like-minded sober people around is the best way to stay sober and safe.
The Recovery Unplugged outpatient plans will keep you connected to medical doctors, medications, therapists, psychiatrists, and other caregivers, along with 12-step and SMART recovery meetings, but there is much more than that. Our alumni program offers an emotional connection to other people like you. When you join us at Recovery Unplugged's Nashville rehab center or elsewhere in the U.S., you become part of our family.
