According to an article published by the US National Library of Medicine, “Lack of a stable, alcohol and drug free living environment can be a serious obstacle to sustained abstinence.” Countless studies point towards the fact that men and women have a much higher chance of staying sober long-term and avoiding relapse if they immediately transition into a sober living environment once they have completed inpatient treatment.
While Immersion Recovery Center doesn’t currently operate any of our own sober livings, we do work in close partnership with several reputable, gender-specific sober living houses in Delray Beach, Florida. Our case managers help place our clients in a safe and supportive living environment as part of our comprehensive aftercare planning services.

When Should I Live in Sober Living?
Many of our clients choose to live in a sober residence while they participate in Immersion’s intensive outpatient program during the third phase of our treatment continuum. Sober living gives clients added accountability, community, safety and companionship. Sober living can also remove individuals from the distractions, stress and risk factors often associated with living at home. This allows them to focus on their recovery for a period of time before transitioning back into their normal living accommodations.
