If 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.
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?
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.

Why Stay at a Transitional Living Residence in Florida?
When you are first getting sober, it can be difficult to stay on track with your sobriety. Even for those who attend inpatient treatment can find that returning home immediately afterwards presents many challenges. They often find themselves surrounded by familiar people, places and things that act as triggers. Though they may desperately want to stay sober, they find themselves slipping back into old behaviors. This is not uncommon. If you have spent years of your life using and acting addictive in behaviors, it takes time to learn how to live a new way of life. It is not practical to think that 30 days in treatment is enough to prepare you to return home. Drug and alcohol treatment facilities can give you the tools you need to stay sober one day at a time—a transitional living home in Florida provides you with a safe and supportive environment in which you can practice using those tools until you are ready to live on your own.
Transitional living for men in Florida provides addicts in the early stages of recovery with the support system they need to stay sober. Also known as sober living homes or halfway houses, transitional living homes are especially ideal for men who have attempted to get sober in the past but find that they keep relapsing. Many people know what they need to do to get sober—go to meetings, get a sponsor, find a home group, work the steps etc. Yet so often they don’t do it. Staying at a sober living home can give you the extra push you need to do the work and stay sober.
