Women in Recovery Residences in PAResearch has shown that women face more barriers than men when accessing treatment for addiction. This may be due to multiple factors such as taking care of children, unresolved trauma, financial constraints, or lack of education on specialized treatment programs. Sober living homes for women in Pennsylvania seek to break those barriers.

For women, the process of committing to a specific gender specific sober living facility can be complicated. Increasing numbers of women are addicted to substances, thus the increased demand for more specific sober homes based solely for women. Women need to find the proper assistance that meets their needs because it is essential in nursing full, long-term recovery from addiction.

With the sheer number of women’s sober living homes in Pennsylvania, it is often difficult to differentiate which will be the most beneficial for you. The best bet is to be open to following recommendations of clinicians and others in your support system in spite of the fear or other underlying emotions that surface. There are a variety of types of sober homes for women including:

  • Women only sober living, transitional and halfway houses which offer various levels of structure dependent on what is needed
  • Women with children sober living homes
  • Sober living apartments
  • Sober dorms for students
  • There are both12-step related sober homes in addition to others which support SMART Recovery, Rational Recovery and Women in Sobriety
  • Transitional Housing

There are gender differences in the way men and women recover and it is essential to remain focused on oneself and their own recovery. Many women first complete residential addiction treatment programs and are then recommended to transition to sober housing. Research has proven that residing in a sober living home increases chances of long-term recovery.

The key to long-term sobriety is to move out of your comfort zone, follow recommendations even if they feel uncomfortable and surround yourself with other women, preferably who have more experience in sobriety than you do. It is critical to practice reaching out to women on a daily basis so on days when you struggle most, you are more likely to pick up the phone and ask for help.

Relapse Prevention Is Critical For Long Term Recovery

You send a loved one with an addiction problem to treatment. They spend 30-90 days getting clean and sober, talking about their feelings, and getting healthy again. After treatment, they move to a Sober Living Residence or back home and start to live life again. Shortly thereafter, they relapse. You might repeat this cycle three or four times. What is missing?
Treatment is not a cure for addiction. Treatment, meaning attending a clinical recovery program, is an answer comprised of many different answers for living with addiction, without using drugs and alcohol. Relapse prevention is a particular set of tools which helps those in recovery learn how to live in a way which does not trigger them to use drugs and alcohol to cope. Without relapse prevention specific methods and techniques, treatment is a mere break form a hazardous lifestyle.
Stress Management:
Overall, stress management in every form is one of the most important methods for relapse prevention. Stress triggers the brain to seek relief from stress. In the addicted brain, most often that happens through some form of creating pleasure. Due to the way addiction causes learning and memory association, creating pleasure is intimately tied with drugs and alcohol or other harmful behaviors. Managing stress includes learning what causes stress, how to identify stress, how to cope with stress, and understanding how stress relates to triggers for cravings.
Recovering from drug and alcohol addiction can feel like having to start life over and learn everything new. Too often self-care refers to the luxurious pampering and quality time one spends with themselves to feel good. Self-care also refers to the everyday responsibilities which need to be fulfilled to take care of the self like eating, hygiene, paying bills, managing tasks, and getting enough rest. At Junction House, we call this “life skills” learning how to incorporate essential themes of recovery into everyday life is critical to living a new lifestyle free from dependency on drug and alcohol.
Being acknowledged, heard, and understood are core needs of every human being. For addicts and alcoholics in recovery, it couldn’t be more important. Healthy forms of communication help maintain proper boundaries, boost self-esteem, and articulate emotions, wants, and needs.
Relapse prevention is a primary focus at Junction House Inc where we show clients how to live along spiritual lines in a new life of recovery. For information on our recovery Residences and Sober Living homes for addiction, call us today at 888-44-JUNCTION or 215-919-1558.
