Sober Living

Home/Sober Living

Sober living houses (SLHs), also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living for people recovering from substance abuse and misuse of alcohol.

Reaping the Rewards of Living Sober

Most everyone has heard the adage "You reap what you sow". Nothing could be truer when you are talking about the life of a practicing alcoholic or drug addict. This has been my experience and the thousands I have met and counseled in my 21 plus years of sobriety. The biggest problem is that in the midst of the disease we don't view it that way because it is always someone, something or someplace that has caused the "reaping" it is never what we "sowed".But the reality is, and we begin to first learn this in the early stages of recovery, that it is always my actions that causes the reactions that I get from life and others. The great news for each and everyone one of us is that what was true in the madness of the addiction is also true in the process of our recovery. In other words, reaping and sowing are part of my life regardless of my current condition.
