Ten Questions to Ask About Sober Living Programs

For those who struggle substance abuse, including loved ones, the staff at Riviera Recovery Center for addiction therapy is providing guidance in the form of the Ten Questions to Ask When Selecting a Sober Living Residence.

  1. Is the addiction treatment facility focused on programs for lasting recovery? Getting clean and sober from drugs or alcohol is important, but it is only half the battle. The other half is staying sober for good.
  2. Does the staff of the facility include members who have overcome substance abuse and have achieved lasting recovery? When a staff member speaks to you or your loved one about the addiction challenge, credibility is increased if the counselor has been through the same experience.
  3. Does the drug treatment facility have a multiple approaches to treatment? A one-size-fits-all program for addiction is usually less effective than a customized, hands-on program.
  4. Does the program allow pets? Pets have proven abilities to calm by slowing the heart rate and overall metabolism.
  5. Does the recovery center take the necessary steps to protect patient privacy? This question is even more important in this age of instant news.
  6. Is the facility on the leading edge of substance abuse treatment options? The recovery facility should have an understanding of what works and what doesn’t.
  7. Does the facility have a 24-hour, fully staffed and supervised program? This is important to help prevent the temptations of substance abuse triggers.
  8. Does the facility provide a comprehensive after care program? Follow-up is a key to success.
  9. Does the facility offer amenities so that the surroundings become supportive instead of a distraction? The program environment should inspire and motivate. The beach is an ideal location due to its proven scientific ability to reduce stress and depression.
  10. Is there a family education program to help loved ones understand and cope with what is usually an extremely stressful situation? Family education and support is another key to lasting sobriety.
  11. At Riviera Recovery Center, we are pleased to report that our answer to each of these important questions is “Yes.”
