Across the country, more and more alcohol and drug rehab facilities are offering their patients a chance to conquer addiction while surround by luxury accommodations and five-star amenities.
Picking up on this trend, many sober living homes are also becoming more luxury minded. These high-end sober living homes are more expensive than standard facilities, but offer the individual a higher level of comfort in a variety of ways.
Individuals who are considering a luxury sober living home should take several things into account before enrolling in the program:
Price. Unfortunately, many of these sober living homes are cost-prohibitive. It is important that the time spent here does not put the individual or his or her family under a significant financial burden.
Location. For many people it is important to be near friends, family and career during their stint at sober living. Therefore, the remote location of many luxury sober living homes might not be right for everyone.
Quality of life. The recovering addict is going to call this facility home for an extended period of time. It is therefore important that the rules and regulations -and quality of life- at the facility match the comfort level of the individual.
Amenities. A luxury sober living home is likely to have all the comforts of home -and then some. Most are decorated with comfortable ergonomic furniture and feature recreation areas with top-of-the-line televisions and other electronic equipment.
Food. When an individual checks into a luxury sober living facility, they can expect to have good, nutritious food at their disposal. Some sober living homes will have the meals brought in or prepared by a chef on site, while others may ask the residents to prepare the meals as a means of rebuilding their sense of responsibility.
Holistic programs. Another staple of exclusive sober living homes is access to a variety of holistic care programs. Yoga, meditation and other classes are available to help the individual find serenity during stressful moments, and prepare their mind, body and spirit for what is to come when they depart the facility.
