Sober House Description:
The CJO House is a men’s sober house in Attleboro, MA.
Sober living houses, also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug rehabilitation programs. Sober houses serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society.
Sober living homes are group residences for people who are recovering from addiction. In most instances, people who live in sober homes have to follow certain house rules and contribute to the home by doing chores. Most importantly, residents must stay sober throughout their stay in the home.
The primary focus is integration into a structured living environment. Residents learn how to utilize a peer support system made up entirely of fellow residents in recovery. During this time, counseling focuses on identifying any situational issues which may have predisposed the onset of your chemical addiction.
Once you have demonstrated the ability to rely on your peers to process life struggles, you are ready to move onto the next step. During this time, you are aided in expanding your new-found skills of peer reliance into the larger support groups of A.A./N.A. Counseling now focuses on helping you address the issues and wreckage associated with drug and alcohol abuse. This includes interpersonal relationships with family, employment, legal, and financial responsibilities.
You are taught leadership skills and become a mentor to newly arriving clients. You also begin preparations to have in place the necessary support needed to afford long lasting, contented sobriety after your discharge.
