How To Maintain Long-Term Sobriety
Maintaining long-term sobriety is entirely possible with the right tools in place. That includes maintaining a connection with AA and a higher power of our own choosing, and staying actively engaged with the alumni family at The Plymouth House. For many people, entering into a sober living house is an important part of aftercare. Sober living houses allow for continued support and built-in accountability as people navigate early sobriety and a more independent living situation. Every program of aftercare will be different, but every effective plan for continuing care includes ongoing 12-step program involvement. At The Plymouth House we focus on equipping our guests with the tools they need to work through any challenging and potentially triggering situations. Life throws curveballs at us sometimes, and we have to know how to navigate unexpected and emotionally strenuous situations. We are not expected to navigate these situations gracefully — simply with a level of willingness to ask for help whenever necessary, and with a working knowledge of healthy coping mechanisms.
Leave Treatment With Confidence
At The Plymouth House one of our main goals is ensuring that each of our guests leaves with the confidence he or she needs to maintain long-term sobriety. We make sure that guests have a plan of action in place that they feel comfortable utilizing as they transition back into the real world. Early recovery can be a particularly stressful time, and relapse prevention tools are especially important during the first few months of sobriety.
