In our sober living program at Rise Above, people develop the skills needed to cope with the daily struggles of being sober in a world that makes people want to use drugs. For people who are newly sober, preventing relapse is so much more manageable when the people around them in the evenings and on weekends have also experienced serious consequences surrounding drinking and drug use. If you are in the process of completing your stay at an inpatient California rehab and are interested in continuing your journey in sober living, we welcome you to Rise Above rehab and detox.

Inpatient Rehab Next Steps
When people graduate from residential rehab, they are usually eager to jump back into their lives, equipped with insight and the drive to stay sober for life. While the desire to be sober may feel new, exciting, and unwavering, we have learned from experience that it often doesn’t last. We find that spending time in sober living allows people to transition back into life more effectively for a number of reasons. The first time you encounter an event or experience that makes you want to drink or use drugs, imagine if you knew you wouldn’t be able to fool the people living in your house. Now imagine that you’re trying to convince yourself to go to a meeting after work; would it help to have someone in your house also managing that same dilemma?
