Halfway houses in Austin, Texas are often mistaken for sober living houses in Austin, Texas and some people even use the terms interchangeably. These two types of facilities offer programs that provide a safe, stable and drug-free environment during the recovery process. For many people, the lack of a stable environment during the recovery process can be a serious obstacle to long-term sobriety. These sober living and halfway houses in Austin provide the stability many people need to maintain sobriety.
Sober Living and Halfway Houses in Austin Texas: What to Expect
After leaving a residential treatment facility, most treatment providers recommend sober living houses as a next step to help continue your sober lifestyle. Over the last decade, sober living has taken on numerous different titles from “recovery homes” to “halfway houses.” To determine the type of clean, safe and sober living experience you are seeking, halfway houses in Austin, Texas are sober living houses structured in a way that avoids some of the limitations of halfway houses.
Unlike in inpatient rehab, residents are free to come and go as they please and they may hold jobs or attend school while enrolled in a sober living program. While all sober living and halfway house rules and environments may vary slightly, the main difference between a transitional living program (such as a sober living home or a halfway house) is that residents receive much more support there than they would at home. At Eudaimonia, these services include:
- Peer-guidance and support groups
- Random drug and alcohol testing
- Structured living
- On-site support staff
- Employment/education assistance
- Personal monitoring program
- Family support
These recovery support services offered by Eudaimonia sober living homes in Austin, Texas will decrease your risk of relapsing and give you the sober living experience you need to feel confident maintaining your sobriety on your own when you’re ready.
Requirements for Residency
At Eudaimonia Recovery Homes, most of our residents have already completed an inpatient or outpatient drug and alcohol rehab program. Although we do not require that you have been sober for any particular amount of time before enrolling, we do require that you are currently sober and not abusing any addictive substances.
As a resident of a sober living home, you must also agree to adhere to the guidelines and regulations of your sober living community and commit to regularly engaging in your recovery programming.
You may continue living in a Eudaimonia recovery home for as long as needed. We can provide varying levels of support to best meet your needs as you progress through your sober living program. If we feel as though you may be ready to live independently on your own, we may recommend a particular course of action to help you transition back home and assist you as you begin to take the necessary steps to achieve that goal.
