Benefits of Aftercare & Recovery Housing
PHP • IOP • Sober Living • Halfway Houses
Those in recovery from addiction that are familiar with this part of Pennsylvania, specifically Bucks County, (Bristol, Levittown, Morrissville and so forth), realize how vibrant of a sober community we have here. This isn’t to say that Bucks County, PA is the only great place nationwide to get and stay sober, but it’s definitely up there on the list.
Recovery is largely a social process. It doesn’t matter whether you are living in a halfway house, sober living, treatment center or on your own. The addiction is essentially its own entity living in your head, and it thrives most when the person is in isolation from other actively sober people. To many newcomers in sobriety, this means stepping out of their comfort zones. Fortunately, Bucks County, and actually Pennsylvania in general, have many vibrant, active sober communities that foster sober socialization. This of course is in addition to our array of safe, proactive and integrity-driven treatment solutions, recovery residences and sober living homes.
To most people, being new in sobriety entails living by different principles. Moreover, these principles must be prioritized and practiced consistently. For this reason, nearly all substance abuse therapists agree that aftercare is very beneficial. Many, many people simply cannot make these types of inner changes, to the point of daily consistency, in the span of a 30 or 60-day stay in drug rehab. Even better, is when the aftercare provider offers different levels of recovery services, thus enabling the client to gradually transition back into life at varied levels.

BENEFITS OF OUTPATIENT ADDICTION TREATMENT
ABILITY TO WORK AT THE SAME TIME
An outpatient program for drug and alcohol addiction allows the patient to continue working throughout the duration of treatment. IOP thus reduces additional financial burden, enables the individual to apply their newly learned skills at work and build healthy interactions with associates.
LIVE AT HOME OR A SOBER LIVING
Most people would find it to be a great advantage to be able to stay in the comforts of their own home while getting the addiction treatment they need at an intensive outpatient program (IOP). For those who feel they would be distracting at home, the same would apply to a recovery residence or sober living home, with the added structure and support.
COSTS LESS THAN INPATIENT PROGRAMS
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) for drug and alcohol addiction is typically less expensive than inpatient residential programs. You will still benefit from professional treatment care in a non-traditional setting allowing you to focus on your recovery while attending to your family and keeping your job.
IMMEDIATE APPLICATION OF NEW TOOLS
While you are attending an intensive outpatient program (IOP), you will be learning new skills and how to change your behaviors. Since you will be working at the same time and either living at home or at a sober living home, you will have plenty of opportunities to apply what you have learned versus waiting until the end of an inpatient drug rehab program.
SUPPORT OF YOUR LOVED ONES
When you partake in an inpatient residential addiction treatment program, you are typically shut off from outside distractions as well as interaction with family and friends. On the other hand, when you engage in an intensive outpatient programs, you live at home or a sober living home, allowing you to be surrounded and supported by your loved ones.
BENEFITS OF SOBER LIVING HOMES
A sober living home alleviates the distractions and reminders of your own home environment. It provides a much needed structure whereby clients are expected to abide by curfews, house rules and partake in daily chores.
PEOPLE TO RELATE TO
At a sober living home, you will be surrounded by people who are in the same sort of situation as you are. They understand and can relate to your struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, thus giving you a comfortable environment to express yourself and build new relationships.
PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT SYSTEM
Sober living homes will have onsite managers to ensure your safety, monitor your progress and hold you accountable for your daily chores and sustaining sobriety.
MEASURES TO SUSTAIN RECOVERY
Sober living homes have requirements and rules in place to assist you in your sobriety and maintain long lasting recovery, such as weekly community house meetings and urinalysis and breathalyzer testing.
ALUMNI RECOVERY COMMUNITY
One of the most important things you can have at a sober living home is a strong alumni community. While you are facing your ups and downs from addiction recovery, it can be a great source of comfort to have the support of those who have been where you are at now and are willing to help you in your sobriety success.
