Importance of Sober Living Homes for Men

Men are not only more likely to develop substance abuse problems, they also tend to be more reluctant to seek sober living homes. Cultural expectations dictate that men should be strong-willed, self-sufficient, and reliable. Admitting to a substance abuse problem can feel like a defeat for many men.

Men are also more likely to be competitive and impulsive in their interpersonal relations. Men also often have aspects of their history that they might be reluctant to share with members of the opposite gender. Living in a community of other men who are facing similar issues is vital for men recovering from a substance use disorder.

Not only do sober living for men eliminate distractions, but they also allow residents to develop relationships based around trust, solidarity, and mutual understanding.

Our Growing Design For Recovery Sober Living Community

Research on addiction has long shown that helping other people with their addictions is one of the best ways of staying sober oneself. With that in mind, residents at Design for Recovery who have more sober time take on important leadership roles mentoring newer residents.

Individuals have opportunities to get involved in community leadership roles even outside of sober living communities. The men at a Design for Recovery sober living house are active in 12-step programs and support groups. Many perform community service activities, often with special emphasis on repairing damage they inflicted during active addiction.

At Design for Recovery, staff members and residents alike understand that addiction is not an individual problem. It affects families, neighbourhoods, and broader communities. While addiction tends to narrow a person’s focus to the ego, men pursuing sobriety at Design for Recovery begin to look outside of themselves. Many ultimately find that the greatest gift of sobriety is the strength that one can lend to others in need.

You’ve already survived 100% of your bad days.

There will be more tough days ahead, but we're here to provide you with a sober community and support system to make even the hardest days a little easier knowing that you're not in this alone.
