Halfway House

We Do Recover

Also known as sober living homes, a halfway house can be defined as a residence for individuals who have completed treatment at a rehab center who are not yet ready for society.

Halfway houses slowly adjust the individual back into society by means of support and a change of lifestyle. A halfway house is an essential component of the addiction recovery process, providing you with a safe and supportive environment to continue your path towards sobriety. It is a residential facility that serves as a bridge between intensive inpatient treatment and the challenges of returning to normal life.

Halfway houses have been around since the mid-20th century, initially designed to support individuals transitioning from psychiatric facilities to independent living. Over time, these houses also began to cater to individuals recovering from substance abuse or addiction. Today, they play a important role in helping people reintegrate into society after receiving intensive treatment for addiction.

These houses provide a structured and highly supervised living environment, aimed at promoting personal responsibility, accountability, and relapse prevention. You will typically share the living space with other residents who are also on the path to recovery. This communal living allows you to develop a support system and learn from your peers’ experiences, strengthening your commitment to sobriety.

In a halfway house, you will follow a set of rules and guidelines designed to boost your chances of successful recovery. These rules might include attending support group meetings, participating in therapy sessions, maintaining sobriety by abstaining from drugs and alcohol, and actively engaging in household chores and responsibilities.

While residing in a halfway house, you will have access to counselling and support services, ensuring your emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Many halfway houses also offer job training, educational workshops, and assistance in finding employment, empowering you to build a stable and fulfilling life free from addiction.

It is key to note that halfway houses are not intended to provide long-term housing. Instead, they serve as a transitional phase between structured treatment settings and independent living. The length of your stay in a halfway house can vary depending on your needs and progress in recovery.
