Halfway houses – also known as sober living homes – are residences that provide a drug and alcohol-free environment for newly sober people.
Transitioning to a halfway home is a beneficial step after completing inpatient treatment, or while enrolled in an outpatient treatmentprogram. Halfway houses are usually more affordable than residential rehab programs, offer peer support and other services, and can be a bridge between the support of a treatment center and the temptations of the “real world.”
Sober living homes are group homes for addicts. Homes are usually located in a quiet area to help ensure a peaceful environment for addicts to recover.
People who live in sober living facilities can usually come and go as they please as long as they follow certain rules. For example, sober living houses may require residents to be home by a certain time or to go to work during the day. Residents are also usually subject to random drug tests to prove that they are sober.
