Sober Living Homes for Young Adults
Red Mountain Sedona (RMS) is a Sober Living Home for Young Adults that offers professional clinical services as a “next-step” aftercare program for recovering addicts. RMS is located in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, and helps students from all over the United States.
The National Institutes of Health reported in their study of sober-living homes that those who have been through inpatient rehab, recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, should not cycle directly out of rehab. They cannot immediately return to their old lives and habits and expect to successfully retain sobriety. The chance of relapse increases exponentially in such a stark situation.
Sober living homes bridge the gaps from total-immersion residential care to the previous, addiction-laden environments. Extended stays at such facilities are impractical for a variety of reasons; often, the rising cost of full treatment is a concerning factor. In addition, inpatient addiction care is a very strict environment (as it should be), but not at all representative of what the world will be like. Sober living homes are a safe bridge between such intensive treatment and returning home.
Sober living program residents receive ongoing individual and group therapy, along with vocational and educational support. They learn to develop independent living skills, and of course, receive ongoing support toward sobriety. Most addiction professionals will attest that the best results for long-lasting sobriety includes the concerted efforts of sober living programs.
Here at Red Mountain Sedona, our sober living program is staffed by professional, licensed therapists and counselors. We also retain educators, nutritionists, and other support staff who share a passion in assisting young men and young women to stay sober while transitioning back into the real world.

Clean and Sober Living Environment
A sober living house is a temporary, yet important, step on the path to sobriety. It is here where people recovering from addiction can live in a supervised and sober living environment with both safe structure and rules, appropriate for young adults. This often includes chores, curfews, job seeking, and therapy.
In most circumstances, successfully maintaining sobriety requires patients to alter almost everything about their previous lives when they were actively addicted to alcohol, drugs, and other issues. This may include changing jobs, replacing friends, or even eliminating loved ones who are deemed toxic to the student’s sobriety.
The goal of Red Mountain as a safe, sober environment is to integrate continued treatment with independent living skills training to ensure long-lasting sobriety for both men and women that have come out of traditional inpatient treatment. It has been proven that the best results for ongoing and continued sobriety includes a transitional component, and this is our sober living program.
Red Mountain offers the therapeutic comfort that comes from the camaraderie of other young adults who are also dealing with the transition to the sober lifestyle. The initial goal of each student is to work through the struggles associated with early sobriety, and to help (and accept help from) others who are facing the same issues. In a sober living home, residents can focus on overcoming addictions to drugs or alcohol with professional help, and move forward into a more successful future.
Sober Living Halfway House
Sober Living Houses are structured in a way that avoids some of the limitations of traditional halfway houses. The essential characteristics include:
1) An alcohol and drug-free living environment
2) Therapy and counseling in both individual and group settings
3) Ground rules to keep residents safe, secure, and sober
While this may sound like the traditional half-way house, or even drug treatment program, Red Mountain goes beyond both of these configurations to provide such things as independent living skills, job skills, and unique therapy. Our therapy models include many Eastern philosophies, where students learn mindfulness meditation, martial arts therapy, equine therapy, and adventure therapy. We know that in the 21st century, there are many different challenges and expectations for young adults than there ever were before. We embrace and utilize these outlooks to create an exceptional sober living environment.
Returning to the “old” world where a person’s addiction was rampant, with old friends who are still using, old places and circumstances that will sharply bring back old habits—can be a very frightening thing. Getting help for one’s addiction and struggling through the months of recovery is a huge ordeal in and of itself. Leaving the intense environment of treatment and going straight back to previous routines can be fatal—in more ways than one. Killing recovery is a real thing when a person starts using again.
This is why a transition such as sober living homes and Red Mountain Sedona’s program is not only a good idea—it is a vital one. Why make recovery even harder by returning to regular life far before one is ready? There is no need. We can help.

National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) – As your children age they come to a point where they will be tempted by drugs and alcohol. They might be tempted to give in to the pressure to try them, and, as a parent, it is your job to talk with them. Talking with your child is the best thing that you can do for them. When you speak with them, you might have more influence over their decisions than you ever could have imagined. Studies have shown that children whose parents have honest conversations with them about alcohol and drugs are 50% less likely to give in to the pressure to use them.
