Austin's sober living houses from Bridgeway Sober Living can help a person to make necessary life changes and to overcome an environment that may be setting them back or harming them. Often, it is the people, places, and things around us that spur our addictions, dysfunctions, and bad habits, and removing ourselves from such environments is a crucial first step to getting clean and sober.
Ideally, a person who is interested in sober living in Austin would contact us either on their way to rehab or while they are in residential inpatient rehab so that we could coordinate moving them in on their rehab completion date. This way, we can make the transition as smooth as possible for all parties.
The Real Test Comes After Inpatient Drug Rehab
Getting clean and sober inside of an inpatient drug rehab in Austin is easy. Everything is made up for you already. Most Austin inpatient drug rehabs last anywhere from 30 to 90 days, depending on the rehab center, the patient, and the patient's needs. During this time, the patient is effectively shielded from the environment and influences that would normally be present in the patient's life. The patient may also be shielded from his or her own impulses, self-destructive behavior, and bad habits. But what happens when the patient finishes rehab?
If the patient is released from rehab back into the environment that he or she left, then what good was rehab? To put it in a different light, imagine that certain a child was rescued from an abusive home. After one, two, or three months, when the child has started to recover from the abuse that he or she was exposed to previously, the child is then sent back to the very place that he or she had to be rescued from. Would this be a good idea? Do you think the child is in danger again? Of course! Well, the same principle applies to adults with addiction problems.
Choose Bridgeway Sober Living
An inpatient drug rehab in Austin can save a person's life who is in a pattern of substance abuse and self-destruction. In fact, rehab is a critical first step in recovery. It's the "rescuing" of the person from an environment that is either enabling, contributing to, or causing the person to use drugs or alcohol. However, inpatient rehab is only the first step on the long, winding road of recovery.
Following inpatient treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, a person needs to be released to a sober living home that provides them with a new environment. In a sober living home, the person will continue to gain some of the structure that they benefited from in rehab, such as round-the-clock access to addiction specialists, accountability, and a safe, clean environment that is conducive to long-term recovery.
At Bridgeway Sober Living, our sober living homes integrate with our residents' addiction treatment plans, medical needs, and legal obligations. Contact us today to learn more about our addiction services.Inpatient Drug Rehab Austin
