Why Empowerment House Exsist?
Overdoses in New Jersey are up 20% so far this year compared to the same time period in 2019, said Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli. So far, there have been 1,339 suspected overdose deaths this year.
Sober Living homes are increasingly viewed as a viable and cost-effective alternative to established recovery-oriented systems of care. Sober Living homes are a good alternative because they provide safe and healthy environments that support clients in their recovery. Empowerment House empowers clients by providing support as they transition towards living independent and productive lives in their respective communities. Empowerment House offer a unique alternative to harm reduction, an essential component for individuals whose main goal is to find a sober living environment.
How Effective Are Sober Living Homes?
Studies indicate that living in sober living homes after inpatient treatment increases recovery rates, financial strengthen and overall stability. An American Journal of Public Health study compared individuals who lived in a sober living home to those who only received outpatient treatment or attended self-help groups. A study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment found sober living home residents experienced improvements in arrest rates, alcohol and drug use rates, and employment rates. The authors found evidence that self-help groups, wellness programs attendance, and social support systems were key components of recovery for residents. A variety of other studies have also found that sober living homes appear to be an effective component of the recovery process.
After one year, those who resided in a sober living home:
Were less likely to abuse drugs or alcohol.
Made a higher average income.
Were less likely to be incarcerated or reincarcerated.
