Why Choose Our Sober Living?

First of all, if you are not serious about ending your addictions for good, then our women’s sober living houses aren’t going to work for you. However, if you have read this far then maybe you do want to get to know the real you, the best you, and the clean and sober you! Our Sober Living for women provides a safe atmosphere where everyone is on the same page. Our houses are elegant in all senses of the word. We require that all residents work, go to IOP, and stay positive about recovery. We run a home not just a program, and that is how it works. Our houses are managed by female leaders in recovery, and everyone is treated with a lot of love and respect. So if you are ready to stay on the path of discovering who you really are, meaning you are ready for your recovery to make your dreams come true, then we want you here!

We Go To Meetings and We Go to Church

For some girls in early recovery, going to meetings or church isn’t always first on their list. Especially, after a long day at work, IOP, and life. And we get that! And sometimes meetings and church might be boring, yet what we want you to realize is that meetings do matter because they help remind you how to change and church reminds you that you are loved. Routine lives are safe lives, and learning to make regular meetings with your peers and going to church to be with God (or your higher power) no matter how long your day was is crucial. We will require you attend a number of meetings a week, find a church that you love, and we will make all of this easy because we provide rides and tell you where all the good ones are.

What is IOP?

ebook_main

IOP stands for intensive outpatient program. The word ‘outpatient’ usually makes those with experience at other drug and alcohol rehab’s think that this is a day or night program and that it is easy to follow. Those two thoughts can’t be more correct! Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to allow clients to live independent lives while receiving professional substance abuse treatment.

When Does IOP Meet?

The IOP program sessions are available morning, afternoon and evening. IOP meets for three hours at a time for three days a week. The purpose of this program is to help get a person’s life back on track. IOP allows clients to work, go to school, keep appointments, make meetings and continue on with their daily commitments. The agenda for most clients in IOP is that they reside in a sober living house and attend IOP with their housemates. Women reside with women and men with men.

Why Does IOP Help Addicts In Early Recovery?

Persons in early recovery are going to go through stress. They are learning to cope clean and sober, which is not easy. They will be feeling up one day and down the next. They will also be getting new jobs and maybe even losing old jobs. That’s life. The support of this program is founded on giving attention to the stressors that life brings. Getting a flat tire, or forgetting to pay a bill, and even having arguments with friends are events addicts and alcoholics can often relapse over. Not as likely with the support of an IOP program.

IOP has a professional staff of counselors, psychiatrists, and therapists ready to listen and provide guidance and love. And one of the strongest supports that are not always obvious but definitely happens at IOP is from clients helping clients. Close, real, relationships occur naturally and create memorable, positive support networks, for years to come.

And there is plenty of learning that occurs at IOP- on a multitude of levels! Emotional, spiritual and cognitive. Learning about the self and how to care for the ‘new you’ in recovery is really what IOP is all about. The groups and workshops teach recovery skills, philosophy, and provide guidance about how to stay clean and sober. Learning at IOP is the free flowing of educated advice meant to save you.

And IOP IS FUN

Fun is a word most addicts and alcoholics have to learn to redefine. IOP isn’t just fun because of the ‘live’ recovery speakers who’ve made it out of addiction, who come to inspire and push you towards your dreams, or even the catered food (which is really good and provided at each 3-hour session) or the massage therapy sessions that are heavenly. IOP is fun because of the relationships that are formed. The counselors are there for you and so is the staff. And when you laugh with one another during group, or because in the van ride to IOP the driver played the best new song, or because you watched your friend get through a crisis and stay clean, it’s going to be the best kind of new fun you’ve had in your life, and in your recovery!

Relationships, Love, and Relapse: Why They Are Connected

My Child Has an Addiction Part 11 Intervention Steps

The Emotions Are Big

Love is the single most sought after emotion we have. We all want it, and we all need it. So if its overall reputation is so popular why would feelings of love cause a relapse in addiction recovery? The answer is plain and simple; the emotions are BIG, really BIG. And for people in early recovery the need to feel something, anything other than our own feelings is even bigger. And with these great big feelings of love, we buy right in. For most of our lives, we have used drugs and alcohol to cope. Now that we are clean and sober, we are left all by ourselves to face what we were numbing in the first place. And this is really hard. That’s why so many turn to the opposite (or same) sex to take their mind off of themselves. Suddenly, you like everybody! And everybody likes you too! So here are the reasons why you should resist beginning a relationship in early recovery:

WHY #1: You Are Not Ready

If you are still not comfortable with your own feelings, then it is totally ridiculous to think you can handle someone else’s too. Love is the joining of emotions. Love is also wonderful when it is REAL. For people in early recovery, their idea of REAL is probably a little off. No offense, we all know addicts and alcoholics are incredibly intelligent and good hearted. But the fact remains that until you are comfortable in your own skin, you are not ready for someone else’s. No pun intended.

Why #2: Focus on Yourself

Think about it, aren’t YOU getting clean and sober so you can change YOUR life? Of course you are! So why bring in someone else to focus on? This is your time to love yourself for once, to be a star, and to become the person you were meant to be. We may all be in this together, but it is only YOU that can beat addiction, so focus on yourself and let the love thing happen later. You will thank us if you do.

Why #3: In Addiction Recovery, We LOVE to Obsess

You may not have noticed, but should, how we as recovering addicts tend to think of things as black and white, and all or nothing. We also tend to create scenarios in our head that are not real, and especially about the opposite sex. Our imaginations fuel our feelings, and this can become dangerous, and cause you to feel really uncomfortable. And this is called OBSESSION.  We obsess over the desire to use AND what we make think is true love. Obsession happens in early recovery and can tie itself to LOVE and to substances. And for us in recovery, love is often a great pretender, and nothing is worth losing your recovery, even (what you think is) love.

So if you are not yet fully committed to your recovery you may want to ask yourself, am I committed to another person? Because for persons in new recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, it is our romantic relationships that will hold us back, and take us down. The facts don’t lie and if you ask anyone with some good clean time what has caused them to relapse, or almost relapse, quicker than anything else, the answer is always the same – it was because of a romantic relationship. For the newbie, romantic relationships take more away from you than they give- if you let it.
