Lori Criss, Associate Director of the Ohio Council of Behavioral Health and Family Services Providers explains this to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in detail.
“Who we spend our time with, where we go, and the things we surround ourselves with all impact who we are and the decisions that we make. Many times, people in early recovery have to give up everything they’ve known.”
“[That’s] because those people, places, and things put them at risk for relapse or continued use,” Criss says. “Early recovery can be painful and isolating. Recovery housing can fill that void with a safe place, compassionate people, and a life full of purpose and fun that doesn’t involve alcohol or drugs.”
In other words, residents of sober living homes can safeguard their new sobriety in a reliable environment. Evidence has shown the significant role of these residences in prolonged recovery. Therefore, we’ve aligned our treatment center with a sober living home that’s committed to your safety, comfort, and sobriety.
We certainly understand that the transition into lifelong sobriety can seem intimidating at first. But, you’re not alone. Call us now at 910-239-0377 to take the first step. Let us be your lifeline to a happier, healthier you!
