Best Sober Living Homes in Florida

image of a pool at a halfway house in FloridaFlorida, South Florida especially, is known for its dense concentration of recovering individuals, treatment centers and sober living residences. Home to a growing and diverse community of recovering addicts and alcoholics, Florida’s beautiful beaches, warm weather and numerous job opportunities have led many who have some down to go into treatment to stay and make a new, sober life for themselves here. The numerous halfway houses in Florida provide the ideal setting for individuals in early recovery to rebuild their lives in a safe and positive atmosphere. They offer an affordable, long term solution that enables men and women who may have lost everything due to their addiction to get on their feet again and grow and mature as they learn to live a sober, independent life.

However, unfortunately, not all sober living homes have the same standards. There are sober living homes that offer very little structure and residents are not truly held accountable for their recovery. We have all heard of houses where the managers rarely make an appearance and residents frequently relapse without being held accountable. These are places with few rules and very little focus on recovery.

There is a Solution is a treatment and sober living referral source network. We work with some of the best sober living homes in South Florida. Any sober living home in our network is a trusted, reputable residence that can be counted on to offer a certain level of structure for clients. The sober houses we work with all provide random drug testing and require residents to attend regular 12 Step meetings as well as find a sponsor and work the steps. For recovering addicts and alcoholics looking for an even higher level of structure, we can recommend houses that provide transportation to mandatory 12 Step meetings every night, have a buddy system in place for new residents and require everyone in the house to find employment or volunteer.  We tour the sober houses we refer to and stay and in touch with our clients to get their feedback. We are also active members of Florida’s recovery community.

If you are searching for a sober home in the Florida area, call There is a Solution today at 1-800-832-5250. If you require a higher level of care, we can refer you to a detox facility or inpatient or outpatient treatment program. Take the first step towards a new life and call us today.

How to Find a Halfway House in Florida

 

image of a halfway house for men in FloridaIf you are searching for a halfway house in Florida, you may be overwhelmed by all the different sober homes there are or you may be at a loss at where to begin.

The following are several suggestions to help you find the halfway house that is best for you:

  • Ask around at 12 Step meetings.

If there is a halfway house with a good reputation, people in the rooms will know about it. Likewise, if there is a halfway house known for sketchy practices or people always seem to be relapsing there, it’s good to know that too. It’s important that you ask around and not just ask one person. He/she may have negative comments about a place, but it might be that that they were kicked out for breaking the rules. Ask at least 5 people. Also, you probably have seen vans pulling up outside meetings that come from treatment centers, but sometimes they are also from halfway houses. A halfway house that offers transportation to meetings is a huge plus. It shows that they care if their clients are actually working a program.

  • Take a Tour

A lot of houses are more than willing to set up a tour. Not a lot of halfway houses have websites and even less have decent pictures that can really give you an idea of what the place looks like. The actual house can look better—or worse—than it does in pictures. Also, this will give you an idea of what the community at the house is like—is comfortable and homey? Does it look well maintained? Are a bunch of people just lying around sleeping in the middle of the day on a Tuesday?

  • Rules Rule

Understandably your first thought may not be “I want to find a super strict house with a lot of rules.” But finding a house that has—and actually enforces—rules is important. Especially during early recovery, you want to be in a positive environment with recovery focused individuals. You don’t want stay somewhere with no structure and no one caring what is going on.

There is a Solution is a network of treatment centers and halfway houses. We help people find the level of care they need at the facility that is right for them. We believe in presenting people with a variety of options so they can make them best choice for themselves.

Transitional Living in West Palm Beach

Image of a Kitchen at a West Palm Beach Halfway HouseThere is a Solution is a free intervention and transitional living referral service. Transitional living facilities, also known as halfway houses, recovery houses and sober living, are apartments or houses that are set up to help men and women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction transition back into life outside of treatment. The first few months in sobriety can be a vulnerable time for addicts and alcoholics. The structured environment provided by a transitional living facility can allow them get the support they need.

We don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to choosing a transitional living facility. Different houses accommodate different individual needs. There are halfway houses that offer a more structured program while others provide a more laid back approach. Some people are able to do what they need to for their sobriety without someone telling them to; others need to be accountable to someone, especially in early sobriety, to ensure that they are making their meetings and working the steps and staying away from potentially triggering people, places and things. However, all the halfway houses we work with do require regular attendance of 12 Step meetings and random drug and alcohol testing. This is to make sure that the house offers a safe and recovery oriented environment that promotes sobriety.

The transitional living facilities in our network offer a variety of locations and amenities. Regardless of your financial situation, we can find a sober living facility for you. Some of the halfway houses we work with offer:

  • In-ground pools
  • Plasma TVs
  • Locations minutes from the beach
  • Pool tables
  • Weight rooms
  • Single Rooms
  • Access to one-on-one counseling and intensive outpatient treatment
  • Onsite laundry
  • Gym Memberships

If you are searching for a transitional living facility in West Palm Beach for you or a loved one, call There is a Solution today. We can provide you with information such as cost, location and amenities for multiple locations and arrange tours. In addition to finding you a transitional living facility, we also work with a large network of detoxes, treatment facilities, partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP). Our services are designed to help you at each step of the way.

You don’t have to go through this alone. The professional and knowledgeable staff at There is a Solution is there to help, at no cost to you. Call us 24/7 at 1-800-832-5250 to learn more about the services we offer.

How do I Find a Sober Living Facility for Men in Florida?

If you have tried inpatient treatment alone before and found that you returned home and started using again, it is strongly recommended that you make a commitment to stay at a sober living facility. Returning home before you are truly ready can often lead to relapse. This sets the addict or alcoholic up to develop the mentality that they are a “chronic relapsers” or a “hopeless case.” They begin to lose faith in their ability to stay sober and doubt that anything could work for them. This toxic belief could not be further from the truth. Very few men who stay at an inpatient drug and alcohol facility, and then return directly home rather than staying at a sober living facility for a period of at least three month, are able to stay sober.

 

 

The following explains how to find a men’s sober living facility in Florida:

  • Get a Recommendation from your Treatment Facility

If you are currently in an inpatient drug and alcohol facility, your therapist should be able to provide you with a variety of places that he or she could recommend.

  • Research on the Internet

Some, but not all, sober living facilities for men have website. Their website should explain the general house guidelines, cost and provide pictures of the halfway house.

  • Speak to other Men at 12 Step Meetings

If you are going to AA or NA meetings, listen to the men in the meetings. If you like what they have to say or see that they are working a good program, ask them if they went to a sober living facility and, if so, which one. Similarly, if you hear men taking about a place with very little structure or where it seems that people are constantly relapsing, avoid it.
