Sober Living is when you have put your addiction in the past and have made a conscious effort to remain sober after completing a primary rehab program such as AA, NA or the twelve-step fellowship program.

Making a conscious effort to stay sober is very important and can be rough in the beginning. If you feel that you might be tempted or that you might not have the right life skills yet to cope with being sober on your own then a secondary care programme could be for you. If you are interested in secondary care have a look at our programme here.

Reintegration Care is based on an approved secondary care programme which helps you learn how to cope in the outside world on your own as a sober individual. This is accomplished by teaching you the necessary coping mechanisms in a calm and safe environment such as a halfway home with like-minded people.
