Sober Living Costs
After paying for drug and alcohol rehab, many feel that their resources are tapped out. Fortunately, there are resources for covering sober living costs: insurance, grants, sliding scale payments, payment plans. It’s the costs that you incur when you opt out of sober living when you need it that are too high to pay.
The Financials of Sober Living
Some homes include room and board as well, which means that part of your monthly payment will go toward the grocery bill for the house and other incidentals like paper towels and cleaning supplies. You may be expected to sign onto a chore wheel or to cook dinner for the house once or twice a week and show up to house meetings.
These are the same costs you would incur at any home, so the increase in cost over your regular rent and grocery bills are minimal.
The Costs and Savings
You will never come home to find alcohol in the kitchen or drugs on the coffee table, roommates who are intoxicated or house guests who are loaded. Your home will be a safe zone that is temptation free. This means that you won’t be spending money on alcohol and drugs, you won’t be spending money on property damage or calls to the police due to bad behavior of yourself or your housemates under the influence. No legal fees incurred. Just a quiet, safe place that allows you to focus on yourself and your health as a build a new life for yourself.
The Costs and Emotional Savings
Knowing that you won’t be returning home to a battlefield each night or potentially walking into a party is a huge relief when you are trying to build a new life for yourself. It’s important to stay as emotionally stable as possible as stress or upset are a common trigger for people in early recovery.
Always a focus, it is essential even as you look for a new job or a home to live in after you leave sober living that you remain clean and sober. Without sobriety, you won’t hold onto that new job, new relationship or new home for long! A sober living house can give you a sense of security that you won’t find anywhere else and if it’s one more thing standing between you and a life of addiction, it’s value is priceless.
