Hope by the Sea is a full-service treatment center that provides intervention, aftercare and sober living in Orange County. Sober living homes are safe, drug and alcohol free, environments in which peers support each other in their sobriety and learn new ways to cope with problems and conflict. Staff at our sober living home are often recovering addicts and alcoholics themselves and are able to provide support and advice to people who are newly sober. Because residential drug and alcohol rehab is just the start of recovery, oftentimes sober-living homes help people further develop healthy coping skills and daily habits to prevent relapse.
Hope by the Sea offers a sober living program that allows both freedom and structure to co-exist. 12-step meetings and other therapeutic activities are encouraged, as they teach newly sober individuals how to take care of themselves and monitor their recovery on a daily basis. Clients in our Orange County sober living homes are able to attend school, work, and outside meetings. Clients have reasonable curfews and have chores or other projects within the house to keep it running smoothly while instigating normal daily habits. In this way, our sober living provides patients with useful skills that facilitate their transition back to the real world.
The majority of people who use sober living as a tool after residential treatment find that long-term sobriety is easier to maintain and that the social network and friends they meet in sober living end up being supportive, long term friends. Sober-living homes are generally not co-ed in order to help clients focus on their recovery without distraction. There may be a minimum stay, but often people choose to stay in sober living in Orange County for longer than required because it is a fun, supportive, loving and familial environment. Hope by the Sea encourages our clients to use sober living as an additional form of support after a drug and alcohol rehab primary program is completed. Drug and alcohol abuse are behaviors that develop over time. Even after individuals form new habits, a supportive network of friends and positive role models help them to maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
Remember that addiction has numerous physical and psychological symptoms and effects. An effective treatment center will provide a holistic approach to recovery that addresses an individual’s physical comfort and needs, as well as his or her emotional and psychological well-being. At Hope by the Sea, our drug and alcohol rehab staff members are thoroughly trained to give your loved one the medical care and moral support needed during the transition to a drug-free life. Addiction treatment is an ongoing process that can begin with our California drug rehab and alcohol treatment center, but should ideally continue indefinitely. Our goal is to give patients new perspective, strength, and coping skills that will provide them with enduring tools of self-support long after they exit our program.
