Meet With Your After Care Specialist

In most inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities, after care specialists will be available for you as your treatment draws to a close. After care specialists can help you assess whether you need to extend your stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab, or help place you in transitional recovery housing for sober living. Most sober living facilities require contact two weeks before you plan on making your transition from inpatient drug and alcohol rehab to their facilities.

Complete Your Sober Living Application

Most sober living facilities will require two days to a week to review your sober living application. Make sure that you have contacted the sober living facility ahead of time to check availability and learn more about the facility. Ensure all forms are filled out thoroughly, and any deposits or initial payments made on time.

Learn the Rules for Your Sober Living Environment

Many sober living environments have fairly strict—or even “zero tolerance”—policies on their rules, in order to maintain order in professionally supervised or peer group housing. Make sure that you review the rules before moving into your sober living environment, gaining any clarification you need from your inpatient after care specialist or by speaking with a supervisor or intake specialist at the sober living facility of your choice.

Deal With the Medical Details

While not every insurance policy will cover the expense of sober living homes, you will want to call to inquire about coverage, or get recommendations for local doctors near your new recovery home. Bring your medical insurance card and prescription plan card to your stay, along with any approved prescriptions you might need to bring.

Pack for Your Sober Living Stay

An essential part of planning for your sober living stay is packing the items you will bring. Because most sober living facilities prefer that you transition directly from inpatient drug or alcohol rehab, you will likely be bringing mainly the same items you brought to inpatient care—and your needs will often be similar, at any rate. However, do review any lists of prohibited items, as certain sober living facilities will require you leave certain items behind at inpatient care or send them home with a loved one. Commonly banned items include any toiletries with alcohol content (such as mouthwash), over the counter medications (such as Tylenol or aspirin), stereos, or personal devices (though some luxury sober recovery centers offer more freedom in these areas).
