Our transitional housing in North Carolina provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals who have recently completed a rehab program and are ready to transition into the community.

Sober Living for PHP Enrollees at Changing Tides

Our North Carolina sober living environment for those enrolled in our PHP Program includes lodging and counseling sessions in a comfortable, supportive environment designed to help maintain sobriety and develop the skills to transition into an everyday successful life.

What is a Sober Living Environment Like?

A transitional housing, or sober house, serves as a residence for individuals in the process of addiction recovery, offering supervision and assistance as they reintegrate into society.

Clean and Sober Housing enables you to maintain some structure while adjusting to life without substance use and helps develop habits on how to stay clean and sober.

Light housekeeping services, such as linen laundering, are performed by on-site staff to support and let you concentrate on the activities that are vital to your ongoing recovery.

**Clients are responsible for their own meals.**

Group and individual therapy transitional sober living lets one continue the work done during the addiction treatment program but with a different vibe.

You will also participate in 12-step peer support programs in conjunction with our PHP or IOP programs. Peer support lets you feel less alone in your journey toward long-term recovery, and seeing other people succeed at sobriety gives you the needed motivation to continue pursuing a healthy lifestyle.

Continued counseling services also provide further insight into what led to addiction, which can help avoid relapses.

Private access to the beach is also given to clients as it provides an opportunity for contemplative reflection and recreation.

Scheduled community activities help you stay connected with other clients in the program, making them your support groups on the road to a life free of substance use.

Visits from family and friends are welcomed in our drug-free living environments, with prior approval, after 2 weeks.  This enhances the support system for our clients. Additionally, participation in family therapy is encouraged, aiding in the smooth transition back to family life after completing the program.

Adjusting to Sober Living Facilities

Our sober living environment at Changing Tides is specifically designed for individuals enrolled in a substance abuse treatment program with us, such as our Intensive Outpatient Treatment or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). This environment is a crucial part of the treatment continuum, crafted to bolster the journey toward a sustainable sober lifestyle by providing a less structured setting where residents can continue recovery and practice sober living skills. Peer support, professional counseling, and life skills practice are integral components that help you adjust to your new lifestyle.

Sober living accommodations are available for however long you require them, and program length depends on the client’s needs. Upon admittance to either our PHP or IOP treatment program, an individual assessment helps determine the details of your sober living program. Sober living services are available for anyone who’s enrolled in a rehab program, including those who struggle with alcoholism, drug abuse, prescription opioid addiction, heroin abuse, and other substance abuse issues.

As part of our PHP Program, sober living aims to help you get back into the workforce and learn to manage everyday life. Counseling and support help you achieve these goals, so you can look forward not only to a future of sobriety but also to an enjoyable, productive lifestyle once you leave the program.

Structured Sober Living Schedule for PHP Participants

Participating in our sober living environment involves committing to a program that features structured activities and free time so clients learn how to arrange their time once they return home effectively.

A typical schedule includes daily group sessions in the morning or afternoon and one individual counseling session per week. Most clients in a sober living program also schedule family therapy sessions.

During IOP, you can pursue educational goals or return to work during your free time, and there’s time to explore hobbies or other interests.

Building a foundation of healthy activities helps one adapt to everyday life in a sober environment and reduces the chances of relapse or backsliding.

While in sober living homes, you’re monitored for rule compliance. This includes regular urine drug screening and agreeing not to bring prohibited items on-site, including drugs, alcohol and weapons. A 9 p.m. curfew requires residents to ensure reliable sleep and relaxation time in the evenings, and curfew adjustments are available for individuals whose work schedules require later hours.

What Happens After PHP and Sober Living?

Accountability is a key focus in treatment facilities, so your program is designed to hold you accountable for achieving your personal goals and staying off substance use. It’s a good idea to think about what you want from a sober living program and how you want your life to look after you leave.

The staff at Changing Tides can help you examine and assess these goals, and your formal treatment program can be adjusted to help you meet them. Instead of just building a life without reliance on drugs and alcohol, you can build a life that you truly look forward to.
