Living in active addiction can cause many people to become socially isolated and act in ways that are out of character. This is why relationships and being social in recovery is so important to a person’s ability to maintain his or her new lifestyle.
Part of the independent living program is about building a sober community that will help anyone with the desire to live in sobriety. When people do drugs for recreational purposes, sometimes they forget how to have fun without being high. Just because you get sober doesn’t mean your life is boring and lifeless. As a matter of fact, it is the opposite.
There is a world of fun out there and it just takes the willingness to explore it. At an Independent Living Community, there is so much to do with an amazing sober social event calendar.
Chilling around a community clubhouse isn’t the only thing to do. Go see movies, hit the gym to get your fitness on, community service, church, meetings, fellowship conventions & retreats, and more. When you get the support you need, the fun just comes naturally.
Many people forget how to trust, be social, and be accepted for who they are. These little things make life in sobriety fun and worth living for. Our network of addiction treatment centers understands just how important the little things can be.
