    A Sober Living Home (SLH) is a term used to describe houses where people recovering from addiction can stay. The goal of these places is to provide immediate support and protection that the addict needs and force them to live a life free from substance abuse. SLH’s typically allow the addict to live there for 30, 60, or 90 days.

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

    Aftercare support is a service many addicts need to ensure their success at recovery. This service usually includes one-on-one or group therapies, assistance from a sponsor and other types of help designed to make sure the patient continues living a life free from drugs.

    Patients also may require medication to help them battle addiction. Some people have been able to successfully recover without additional medications, but others have found that they need help during their transition. Long-term, the patient must take the initiative to attend meetings and receive help from other addicts in recovery.
