At Vertava Health, our mission is for people to find success in the long run. We provide many levels of aftercare, including transitional living and sober living centers. A sober living program is provided for clients who have completed our dialectical behavior treatment programs and are ready to practice the life skills education they received during treatment. Because relapse is common in other short-term treatment programs, we have designed our program as a continuing education track for clients to detox, heal, and practice their new life skills lessons by living life.
Clients will live in a safe, clean house with others who are also in addiction remission. They will be expected to hold a job, pay rent, and cover their meal expenses. These items may not sound daunting to you – but to the person in addiction recovery, they can seem overwhelming and stressful. Contact us at 844.470.0410 to learn about our sober living program in Mississippi and our other addiction treatment programs.
When addiction commands the brain, clients often lose their jobs and families. Their regular survival instincts become altered. Their brains are re-trained by drugs and alcohol to believe that physiological survival is now based on procuring and imbibing the prescription drug they may be addicted to or the cocaine or meth that has taken priority.
Because of this, they forget how to live a normal life. Much like a stroke victim has to relearn how to talk or walk, a person who is in addiction remission has to relearn how to function properly in life again.
What Is a Sober Living Program?
A sober living program focuses on helping clients rebuild their lives after addiction. It provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals to practice the life skills they learned during treatment. This includes:
- Finding employment
- Managing finances
- Establishing healthy relationships
- Maintaining overall physical and mental well-being
Sober living programs also offer a sense of community and accountability. Clients live with others who are also in recovery, creating a supportive network that promotes sobriety. They also have access to continued therapy or support group meetings as needed.

Preparations for the Future
In our sober living homes, our clients practice skills like:
- Job interviewing
- Opening a bank account
- Financial management
- Job stress management
- Adjustment to rush hour traffic
- Understanding anger
- How to have fun
- How to communicate about the past
- Family stress management
Clients can live in our sober living facilities anywhere from 30 days to a year, depending on how well they are adjusting back to life and handling life stressors. They still attend meetings with our campus counselors. When they are ready to transition out of sober living and return to their home environments, we provide meeting opportunities, a calendar, and addiction treatment and family therapists in their areas. We even provide information on local sober living facilities if the client wants to return home but isn’t feeling ready to live on his or her own just yet.
