Liberty House Sober Living
At Liberty House, we provide a safe, supportive and structured environment for men and women looking to achieve lasting recovery. Our residential facility is involved in 12-Step recovery groups on premises as well as meetings and AA/NA clubhouses just a few blocks away. Liberty House is ideally located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale just steps away from the beach, dining, shopping and employment opportunities.
For many people, the most difficult aspect of an addiction recovery program is remaining clean and sober after the inpatient program ends. In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 40 to 60 percent of drug addicts revert back to drug abuse after rehab. For some drugs, the statistics are even more grim, with relapse rates for drugs such as opiates approaching 85 percent in some studies. The reasons for this vary, but the most common factor is a lack of preparation for the outside world. Recovering addicts are caught off guard by triggers from which they were protected during treatment, such as dug-abusing friends, old party hangouts and the stress of everyday life.
Fortunately, Liberty House is here to provide hope. Our sober living house is located in Fort Lauderdale, Fl, and we provide services for men and women in early recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. Our program starts where your 30-day rehabilitation program ends, helping you to become successful not only in recovery, but also in life. We will assist you in learning to practice the 12 steps as a lifestyle rather than simply a recovery model, enabling you to achieve lasting sobriety long after your stay at Liberty House ends. To support this goal, we offer 12-step meetings on-site as well as weekly counseling sessions, and we encourage residents to attend other meetings at one of the AA or NA clubhouses located just a few blocks away. We also provide relapse prevention services, including regular drug and alcohol testing.
In our warm, safe environment, men and women are welcomed with open arms as they get jobs, learn responsibility by participating in household chores, and gradually reintegrate into normal society. We provide the structure that you need to fully recover. Rules include obeying curfew, diligently working through the 12 steps, attending your meetings, finding a sponsor and regularly contacting sober supports. At the same time, however, we allow you ample free time to enjoy our outdoor gym and barbecue area or to spend time at the beach, which is mere steps away from our location in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. You are also at liberty to visit one of the many dining and shopping areas near the residence.
At Liberty House, you are more than just a number or a statistic. We see you as a whole person with a story and a life, and as such, we are committed to helping you on an individual level. Our supportive and caring staff is available 24/7 to hold you up as you continue your addiction recovery journey, so if you get a craving at 3 a.m., we will be there. We also provide you with an entire community of like-minded individuals who understand exactly what you are going through, and we require every client to cooperate and help those around them. As a result, the bonds formed at Liberty House are strong, and residents develop friendships that endure even after they have transitioned into normal life.
Liberty House maintains high values that are conducive to helping you become a better person and a productive member of society. We believe that integrity and honor should be applied to all facets of life, no matter how trivial the circumstances may seem. We are also convinced that addiction is a form of being in need, and one of the best ways to counter that is to be of service to others. Also a result, we encourage our clients to develop a helpful attitude and to give freely to those in need. We will work to impart the values of Liberty House to you through gentle mentoring until they are firmly fixed in your character and you practice them without thinking.
Our atmosphere is exceptionally conducive to recovery. Facilities include gorgeous, apartment-style accommodations complete with furnishings; tranquil, beautifully landscaped lawns; and full laundry services. Our common areas are comfortable and arranged in a way that facilitates conversation and fellowship. We are within easy reach of public transportation, which means residents never have to worry about how they are going to get to work or AA and NA meetings. For those who need extra support, individual counseling is available upon request. There is no deadline for leaving Liberty house, and you are welcome to stay as long as you need our services. The only requirement is that you follow all the house rules and continue to abstain from alcohol and drugs.
At the same time, your safety is our number one concern. Drinking or using are strictly prohibited in any form, and chemicals will not be tolerated on the premises. Violation of these rules is grounds for immediate expulsion from Liberty House, with no exception. This allows us to ensure that all of our clients are free from harm and that they will not be presented with temptations that they may be unable to resist. To do otherwise would be to undermine the recovery of every one of our clients.
Liberty House is proud to claim 17 years of compassionate service in the addiction recovery business, and we would love to make you one of our success stories. With our experience and your determination, we are convinced that lifelong sobriety is within your reach.
