Why Sober Living?

The Arbor Sober Living- Austin North offers a safe and supportive place to live. Research done by the National Institute of Health has found that individuals have better long term outcomes when their environment supports sustained recovery. The Arbor’s sober living program is open to those who have completed a primary treatment program, with at least 30 days of sobriety.

Austin North residents ease into a healthy 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. A sense of community is formed, creating a personal network of peer support.

Each sober living home has a live-in house manager who provides oversight, support and accountability. Arbor Sober Living residents have access to a la carte services including Recovery Advocacy and Intensive Outpatient (IOP), 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. IOP provides a continuation of clinical support and guidance. Transportation services are available for clients attending IOP at The Arbor.

Clients participate in a weekly house meeting to check in with each other and the house manager. On-demand and random toxicology screening are conducted to ensure the safety of all residents.

Our recovery housing programs include clinical support. 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 an entire treatment team. Sober Living is overseen by our executive and clinical leadership. This is a key factor that differentiates our program from other sober living in Austin. Continuity of care is supported throughout recovery.
