Why Sober Living?

Sober living at The Arbor’s Austin North residences offers a safe and supportive place to live after a client has completed a Texas residential rehab program. Research conducted by the National Institute of Health concludes that individuals have better long-term outcomes when their environment supports sustained recovery. The Arbor’s men’s and women’s sober living homes are open to people who have completed a residential drug rehabilitation program, with at least 30 days of sobriety.

We have found that many people are more likely to be successful in sober living when they have at least 90 days of residential treatment under their belts. While we understand people’s urgency to move on with their lives after completing treatment at a residential rehab, prioritizing recovery often involves making decisions based on the safest option for maintaining recovery instead of making decisions based on the natural impulse to be free of restrictions and leave the past in the past.

Transitional Luxury Housing: Austin North Sober Living

Austin North residents ease into a healthy, independent lifestyle while experiencing real-life responsibilities, social norms and gaining valuable work and living skills. Life in sober living keeps distractions to a minimum, empowering residents to stay focused on their paths toward independent living. Participants reinforce the skills and habits learned in treatment surrounded by others who are also new in recovery. A sense of community is formed, creating a personal network of peer support. Sober living clients also have access to the following programs as needed:

  • Recovery advocacy
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Coaching and mentorship

Each sober living home has a live-in house manager who provides oversight, support, and accountability. Austin North sober living residents have access to a la carte services, including recovery advocacy and intensive outpatient (IOP) addiction treatment provided by The Arbor. Advocates meet individually with clients to set goals, assess progress, and develop life skills. Residents will develop a personalized care plan with their recovery advocate to aid in the process of recovery. Our IOP provides a continuation of clinical support and guidance. Transportation services are available for clients attending IOP at The Arbor.

The Arbor Behavioral Health: Best Sober Living in Texas

Sober living clients participate in a weekly house meeting to check in with each other and their house manager. On-demand and random toxicology screenings are conducted to ensure the safety of all residents. While we understand that some people may find drug testing unnecessary or insulting, we rely on quantitative rather than qualitative evidence of sobriety.

Putting Recovery First

Each of our sober housing programs includes the clinical support of dedicated professionals. House managers meet regularly with The Arbor clinical staff, including the Clinical Director, to discuss each person’s progress and plan for success. When a client is struggling or needs help, clinical intervention is available. Residents have the support of our treatment team as they move forward. Our executive and clinical leadership oversee each sober living home. This is a feature that distinguishes our program from other Austin sober living homes. Continuity of care is supported throughout recovery. To enquire about sober living bed availability, call our intake team at 844.413.2690 or complete an application for admission.
