Recovering substance abusers in Kokomo, Indiana are lucky to have a new sober living facility to help them continue their journey to living a life free of the burden of dependency on drugs or alcohol. So what does sober living Indiana homes have that other sober living facilities or halfway homes lack?
SOBER LIVING HOMES vs HALFWAY HOUSES
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE
Halfway houses are run by the state and are designated for ex-convicts who have gone through a drug treatment program in prison. The purpose of the halfway house is to help the residents readjust to life outside of jail.
Not all residents of a halfway house are ex-convicts. Some halfway houses are designed for anyone with an addiction disorder who requires more support during or following a rehabilitation treatment program. Halfway houses can help people with addiction disorders readjust to life in the sober community surrounding them.
To take advantage of the halfway house, one must be enrolled in a treatment program or have completed one. There is a limit on how long the residents can stay in a halfway house.
A sober home is a house where people that are newly sober can live and maintain their commitments to sobriety. The homes are supportive places that are made to help strengthen the commitments the residents make to being sober. By living in a sober home, the residents will have a greater chance of later continuing on to permanent recovery.
THE COST OF LIVING IN A SOBER HOUSE
The cost of living in a sober facility varies greatly by state and location. Renting a room in a sober house is similar in cost to renting an apartment, but with more services and more community involvement.
And, just as with renting an apartment, amenities drive up the price. A sober facility with an Olympic-sized pool, hot tub, sauna, tennis courts, and lovely views of the ocean will obviously cost far more than a small room in a modest, well-kept building in a safe neighborhood with no such amenities.
