St. Gregory Extended Living
The transition from a treatment facility to the real world can be difficult as a person tries to hold onto their newly learned coping skills and habits. St. Gregory staff and counselors will often recommend sober apartment living which is designed to provide a more seamless transition to the real world. Working through daily pressures and stress, each resident can return home daily to a supportive group of “like minded” people who understand the difficulty of maintaining sobriety.
The sober apartment living St. Gregory Retreat Centers recommends is a transitionalhousing option for male graduates of the St Gregory Recovery Program. This option exists soley from referrals from the St. Gregory Retreat Center which allows a smooth working relationship to coordinate reservations and deposits.
Sober apartment living is a structured residence providing support within it’s walls to and for the residents, with the same common goal; staying sober from drugs and alcohol while transitioning back to normal life.
The sober apartments are exclusively for men recovering from dependency, all of whom have similar goals of maintaining sobriety. This will provide each resident with the support of like-minded people making recovery more of a group effort than individual.
Residents are required to submit to regular drug testing and rooms are commonly checked for drugs, paraphernalia, and alcohol. These zero tolerance procedures are an extra effort to ensure substance abuse relapse does not occur among the residents, maintaining the safety of everyone in the home.
