Sober Living Environment
I Just Left Rehab. Now What?
A home away from home encourages recovery & sobriety
Janus’ Sober Living homes provide a supportive, motivating setting for recovery from drug and alcohol dependency. We have found that such an environment of security, support and encouragement is critical to a resident’s continued sobriety.
Typically, people enter SLE’s after leaving a residential treatment program. Here they can practice what they learned during treatment in a safe and sober environment. Others are admitted to SLE’s when they are assessed for day treatment or Intensive Outpatient treatment but don’t have a safe and sober place to live while attending these treatment programs. SLE’s are also useful for people who have been through treatment, had a long period of sobriety and then relapsed and need a structured, safe environment to get back to practicing a sober lifestyle.
Janus Sober Living Homes
At Janus, our SLE residents are living with others who share a common experience and can encourage each other in their sobriety. Residents observe curfews, are assigned household chores and agree to regular and random drug tests. The Janus SLE Manager oversees the activities in all homes.
Studies have shown that a Sober Living Environment (SLE) is an effective and important tool in the recovery process, removing individuals from situations that can reduce their chances for recovery. SLE residents recovering from drug and alcohol dependence often benefit from living in a community that is structured, safe and sober.
Janus’ Lifetime Aftercare Counseling Program is a comprehensive, ongoing support group for all clients who have completed treatment at Janus. This is a lifetime benefit for all alumni. Meetings are offered every week. Call us at (866) 526-8772 for details.
