Finding good sober living in Florida can seem like a difficult thing to so. There are so many to choose from and the living styles and programs can vary greatly. If you have decided to attend sober living and live anywhere in the state of Florida, you may have wondered what are the important things to keep in mind when you begin your search? Here are 4 Tips to identify a good sober living in Florida:
A Supportive Staff
The number one thing to look for in sober living in Florida is a facility with a good supportive staff. In sober living homes, the people working there should be not only be caring and sympathetic but be patient and expect that there may be setbacks from time to time with the residents. Experienced workers will be trained to handle any outbursts of anger, crying and any other emotions associated with recovering from a drug and alcohol addiction. A person's recovery doesn’t always go as planned and there will be setbacks occasionally. A good staff will be prepared to handle any such situations.
Due to overcrowding there may not be sufficient space for each resident to have their own room in any sober living in Florida. You may have to share a room with another person which can lead to personality conflicts and personal space issues. You will want to find these things out beforehand so that there are no surprises or disappointments when you get there.
All sober living homes have a set of rules to follow. They may be more strict that you are used to but you must be prepared to follow them without causing problems for the staff and other residents. Some may require that you get up early and shower and then have breakfast with a group. Some may require that you attend group therapy and talk about your problems with others in an open environment. Not following the rules can be a major distraction for others who are committed to their recovery and may threaten your own.
Of course your personal budget may be a huge factor in identifying good sober living in Florida. Only you can determine what that is. Will you be able to cover all your expenses while staying at the facility? Perhaps other family members will be able to assist you with meeting your obligations during your stay. Count the cost before making your final decision of which sober living in Florida you will choose.
