It’s the little things that transform a house into a home, and a high-end sober living community often works together to provide that for each other. It’s the details of artwork, luxurious linens, and design pieces chosen to evoke an air of healing and relaxation, and it continues with meals designed to augment the ongoing process of detoxification and improved physical health. The ability to take a dip on a hot day or soak in the Jacuzzi after a long, busy day can help to ease the stress that often comes with rebuilding one’s life in early recovery. Though no amount of organic food or design amenities will make someone stay sober if they otherwise would not, it does work to make the experience more comfortable and increase the resident’s ability to unwind and remain focused on continued progress in recovery.
Often what residents most want out of a sober living home is the space to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet as they deal with the stresses of the day and create a plan for what is to come. In a bare-bones sober living house, this is almost impossible to find due to overcrowding, but a high-end sober living estate offers plenty of room for everyone to find their own space to heal. Meditation paths, hiking on the grounds, reading centers, spacious living areas – there are a number of nooks that are perfect for residents to relax with a book, write in a journal, meditate, or kick back. The ability to find a little space of one’s own is invaluable anytime but especially in early recovery.
The peer network and therapeutic support of the house manager are part of the benefits of a sober living home, and group outings and house gatherings augment that benefit.

This can include anything from a trip to the beach, a shopping trip, a barbeque, or a camping trip and other outdoors adventures. Those who are interested may opt to attend lectures together at the local university, go to plays or movies, or check out a street festival. The possibilities are limitless and learning how to enjoy oneself without drugs and alcohol is a huge part of learning how to feel comfortable in long-term sobriety.
