Positive Sobriety Institute’s Independent Living Program combines our Intensive Outpatient Program delivered during the day with residential occupancy in a therapeutic community. Positive Sobriety Institute’s Independent Living program prepares the individual for real-life situations that may cause relapse. It is available to individuals who are enrolled in Positive Sobriety Institute’s IOP or PHP program.
Independent Living Program
Independent Living, or transitional living, provides a safe, drug-free, structured and nurturing environment for individuals in recovery from alcohol, drug, or pain medication abuse, to strengthen their sobriety. Independent Living provides a clean, peaceful and active environment with ample opportunities for self-help, entertainment, study, reflection, exercise and teamwork. Individuals in Independent Living are expected to abide by certain requirements such as:
- Remaining abstinent from drugs, alcohol or any other mind-altering substance
- Being employed, attending school or an outpatient program
- Complying with curfew and house rules
- Maintaining a daily chore regimen
- Displaying mutual respect, compassion and camaraderie to fellow house residents
These expectations are designed to assist individuals in maintaining their recovery and to encourage growth and progression in the recovery process. Independent Living provides the best possible residential experience to recovering individuals so they can begin to incorporate important coping and relapse prevention skills into their daily lives.
Re-Discovering the Real You
The goal of Positive Sobriety Institute’s Independent Living Program is to help recovering addicts reclaim their own positive attributes while extinguishing negative ones. Positive Sobriety Institute’s addiction treatment team is committed to helping you re-discover the real you every step of the way.
