It’s hard for the substance abuser to stop drinking or using drugs. It’s often as hard – or harder – for the family. Yet it seems so simple: Why don’t they just stop drinking or using drugs? People who aren’t familiar with the complexity of Substance Use Disorder seek a quick solution, just as the addict or alcoholic seeks a quick fix for whatever ails them: social isolation, woundedness, depression or other mental health issues, and more.

And hope springs eternal.

When people call Clean & Sober Recovery Services to inquire about our residential treatment program, they often ask two questions. First of all, is Clean & Sober Recovery Services a hospital? No, we’re more like a home setting where people can safely learn how to navigate life without alcohol or drugs as their “steering wheel.”

Callers also ask if Clean & Sober Recovery Services is a lock-down facility, and the answer is No. Our residents are all adults, and we don’t have a 10-foot fence to keep them here. Our staff does keep a pulse on the attitudes and behaviors that signal someone might be restless. When residents seem vulnerable, we work proactively with them to tackle whatever issue is prompting them to look for the exit. Sometimes, it’s family issues. Sometimes it’s job concerns. But it’s ALWAYS in their best interests to complete their treatment. More often than not, those conversations with our staff help residents through the rough spots, and they decide to stay.
