Men’s Extended Care Sober Living
Making a long-term plan for sobriety involves several important decisions. Initial treatment options are the first priority, but many individuals plan no further than a stint in a short-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. While this step is essential on the path to recovery, it is merely the beginning of the journey. Effectively achieving a lasting sobriety may be best attained by following drug and alcohol treatment with the kind of comprehensive program that’s provided in an extended care sober living facility.
In New England, men are turning to The Granite House as part of an ongoing commitment to living drug and alcohol-free in the months following rehab. The structured setting, strengthened by a 12 Step Program, provides counseling, guidance, skill-building activities, and even resources for developing better physical fitness and nutrition habits. The Granite House serves individuals from New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts whose lives have been severely impacted by alcohol or substances such as heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, methamphetamines and prescription drugs.
Men’s Sober Living Environments
After primary treatment in a drug and alcohol rehab, a men’s sober living environment can serve as an effective transition to independent living. Research shows successful completion of time in a sober living environment dramatically increases the chances of long-term sobriety. Men from Manchester, Portland and Boston―and all over New England―can continue their recovery efforts at The Granite House in historic Derry, New Hampshire. Unlike many other sober living options, The Granite House provides a three-phase program.
Three-Phase Program For New England Sober Living
The first phase at The Granite House requires participation in group counseling and a 12 Step Program, restricts residents from leaving the house, and lasts a minimum of 30 days. The second phase focuses on developing life skills as groups in this phase address money and time management, continuing education, and employment concerns and opportunities. While still engaged in the structure of the sober living environment and regularly supervised, third phase residents have secured a job―or have begun to attend classes―and are learning to become self-sufficient.
Once a resident has graduated, he may participate in The Granite House’s monitoring program. Whether he returns home to Concord, Bangor or Worcester, the monitoring program helps continue his accountability through ongoing assessment of the recovery progress. With his sights always set on sustaining long-term sobriety, he can benefit from the additional tools to ensure the highest chance of success.
