Connecticut Men’s Halfway Houses and Sober Living Environments
For those living in Connecticut, sober living facilities and halfway houses are readily available for those who are on the path to recovery and would prefer to reside in a transitional living facility to help complete their recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. Granite House can help.
What is a Men’s halfway house?
Men’s Halfway houses are gender specific, transitional facilities operating as sober living environments. Their mission is to help those who still need structure and support in order to fully incorporate those principles recently acquired during their inpatient treatment program. Halfway houses emphasize the development of personal responsibility and accountability, relay greatly on the 12 Step approach, and are highly structured.
Benefits of being in a sober living environment
Sober living homes require regular attendance at 12 Step meetings as well as group and individual counseling sessions. These requirements provide excellent support for those transitioning from a inpatient program. Within the framework of the home itself, structure and discipline are reinforced by requiring chores important to upkeep be performed around the house. Residents must be employed, actively seeking employment or enrolled in classes at a nearby school. Those who seem to receive the greatest benefit are young adult men who are still trying develop their adult identity, and those men who have had a long struggle with their addiction.
Things to accept when living in a halfway house
Residents of a transitional living facility must accept the fact that they are expected to take personal responsibility for their actions, and be accountable for whatever actions they choose to take. The no-nonsense approach in a sober living home is vital to its success, and removal from the facility is the penalty for failing to comply. A halfway house is not a retreat from the demands placed upon them during their inpatient programs, or from their reacquired sobriety. Residents are expected to participate in group and individual counseling sessions, as well as attend 12 Step meetings.
