What is Sober Living?

The first few weeks or months after leaving residential treatment can be challenging. Utilising support and resources such as ‘Sober Living’ is a healthy choice.

Our Sober Living is within The PARC grounds and is an alcohol and drug-free environment where residents can practice what they’ve been shown in treatment and learn to maintain their sobriety. Through peer support, proven recovery principles, peer empowerment, and individual responsibility, residents can solidify their sobriety and prepare to return home or live independently.

The PARC Sober Living is for people who are in early recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.

The PARC is located in a tranquil, rural neighbourhood (away from the tourist bars and clubs), where members can de-stress and focus on their growth and recovery journeys. We are ideally situated to stunning unspoiled beaches, temples and the natural beauty of Thailand.

Research has discovered that communal living can significantly reduce the risk of relapse back into substance abuse. It can also help individuals hone their coping skills, learn how to communicate effectively, and learn to trust themselves and others. It is also often reassuring for significant others to know that their loved one is remaining in a safe environment during early recovery.

What are the Expectations of The PARC Sober Living?

The primary rule of Sober Living is just what one would guess: staying sober. If someone drinks or uses drugs while living with us, they violate the most important rule and may be asked to leave. However, admitting to relapse and being open and honest could earn a resident a second chance. They may have certain liberties suspended, given additional support, and then allowed to stay – if they’re genuinely willing to remain sober and clean.

Here’s a list of basic Sober Living rules that The PARC requires clients to uphold.

Residents must:

Abstain from drug and alcohol use

Abide by a set curfew

Respect other residents and the staff

Give and receive support

Abstain from drug and alcohol use

Not have overnight guests

Sleep at The PARC at least five nights per week (notice must be given when staying away)

Agree to participate in random drug and alcohol tests

Regularly attend local 12-Step Meetings or peer-support groups
