Our Sober Living Home in Santa Barbara, CA
While participating in an inpatient treatment program, you are immersed in the therapeutic environment and surrounded by support and constant care. Once you transition out of treatment, this is often not the case. In a sober living home, you are not bound by the confinement of the treatment environment and, therefore, can come and go as you please. The goal of sober living is to allow newly recovered addicts the opportunity to ease back into day-to-day tasks and activities without feeling unsupported.
We welcome women transitioning from any treatment program who need a strong support system to maintain mental health along with sobriety. At Millie’s House, we provide the specific tools required to build a strong foundation in recovery. Millie’s House also offers support for women who are reunifying with their children, including the opportunity to live together as they begin repairing the entire family unit.
While staying in his sober living home in Santa Barbara, you can expect opportunities to attend 12 step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, ongoing treatment and therapy, and depending on your specific needs, assistance with life skill development such as employment searches and educational opportunities. A significant benefit to a sober living environment is forging friendships with like-minded peers who will continue to help reinforce your desire to remain sober. Unfortunately, when people return home from inpatient treatment, they experience painful isolation. Many feel it is necessary to distance themselves from friends and family to reduce potential exposure to triggers and possible relapse. A sober living home provides a support system that not only helps residents avoid isolation but provides an environment of increased support during the early and often fragile stages of recovery and beyond.
