Benefits of a Sober Living Home


The road to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is a challenging one, to say the least. It takes an extreme amount of dedication, combined with the right external situation to achieve long-lasting sobriety. Our dedicated team members, counselors, and therapists are fully invested in helping Choice House participants start new lives with healthy futures.

After completing the initial 90-day treatment program in Boulder, CO, we recommend that individuals transition into a structured sober living home before fully returning to civilian life. During this time period, participants will attend our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) while living in a Boulder sober house. There are numerous benefits of continuing the journey to sobriety in these homes – here are just a few:

Surround Yourself with Sober Individuals in a Sober Home

Everyone has heard the theory that you are a compilation of the five people you spend your time with most. This is largely true, especially within the sphere of drug and alcohol abuse. Surrounding yourself with individuals who are also committed to breaking the cycle of drug addiction in a sober home will create a supportive environment and the best setting for achieving long-term sobriety. We also encourage Choice House alumni to stay in touch via ongoing activities.

Participate in the 12-Step Program

While staying in our Boulder, CO, sober living homes, individuals will go through the 12-step program during the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Through this phase, participants will become familiar with the strong moral and spiritual principles that serve as building blocks to sobriety. This program has proven to be highly effective for many years, and we recommend the opportunity to engage in these principles.

Receive Career Help to Stay Sober Long-Term

While staying in our Denver area sober living homes, individuals will meet with career counselors who will further set them up for long-term success. These counselors will provide assistance with creating strong resumes, coaching, searching for jobs, and more. This one-on-one career counseling provides vital tools for finding a good job and attaining sober living in the long run.

Reclaim a Sense of Purpose Through Active Work

Within the first 2-3 weeks of staying in our sober living homes, participants must be working, attending school, or volunteering. This is an important step in reclaiming a sense of purpose and finding long-lasting fulfillment.

Our Boulder, CO, sober living homes and intensive outpatient program are valuable options for transitioning from treatment into long-term sobriety. Contact us at 720-577-4422 or to learn more today.
