If you’ve struggled with addiction and want to get sober, chances are the thought of home can be quite daunting. After a long time in recovery, some are desperate to go home and get back to some type of normality, but others find it a bit more overwhelming.
For some, previous homes can be triggering and life in recovery can be difficult if you don’t have a strong support system around you. Even though many go through rigorous detoxes and participate in specialized programs, returning back home straight away can encourage relapsing.
This is why halfway houses are the perfect transitional spaces for addicts to recover, giving them the ideal balance between protection and freedom. This way, they can learn how to live independently free from drugs or alcohol but know that they have a strong network of professionals to fall back on if they’re tempted to start using again.
