Four Strategies to Stay Connected
Join a Sober Living Community
Join a sober living community! Find a sober house, recovery home, or participate more fully in your AA or NA groups. Being connected with fellow men and women in recovery is essential to staying the course.
Do a Daily Routine
Even if you’re mandated to stay at home, your recovery will be supported by activity and engagement to the extent you’re able to stick to something familiar and expected. Wake up at the same time, set up a dedicated area for work or school if you’re doing it at home. Set a schedule and try to use routine to keep calm and collected.
Eat and Exercise
Eating well and exercise are two of the most important habits to keep up with while you’re adjusting to changes in our lives.
Help Someone in Need
Consider offering help to a friend or neighbor (even virtually) on something outside yourself and your life. Lend a hand, coach someone, or find a way to participate in someone else’s recovery.
Sober housing as affected everyone, including sober houses. To read more on the impact COVID has had on our sober living homes, take a look here.
The Sober House Directory is a resource for people seeking sober housing. It’s a great online tool for discovering a sober living home that’s a good fit for you. In the event that Vanderburgh House does not meet your needs, we encourage you to have a look at this excellent resource for choosing a sober living facility.
Vanderburgh House collaborates with a number of independent Owner/Operators who run sober living facilities in their local communities. Sober living operators that want to manage their own homes in collaboration with Vanderburgh Communities can apply for a Charter from us. To open your own sober house, now is the best moment to do it. Attend a meeting to learn more about this opportunity and how you may make a difference in the lives of others around you.
Vanderburgh House was founded with the objective of developing recovery-focused communities that are devoted to the achievement of every member. Our sober living homes are staffed by compassionate House Managers who are committed to helping our clients rebuild their lives free of drugs and alcohol.
