Alcohol abuse has been increasing in the United States since 2019, meaning that there has never been a greater need for sober living facilities.
Data from the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health show that 131 million U.S. adults reported past-month alcohol use in 2021. Among these, 16.2 million people reported heavy drinking, 59 million reported episodes of binge drinking, and 29.5 million were diagnosed with alcohol use disorder. Alcohol abuse is a pressing issue that impacts not only the individual but also their families, community, and society as a whole.
Fortunately, sober living homes can provide individuals with the help they need and the necessary aftercare to complete the rehabilitation process successfully. By offering a safe and supportive living environment, a sober living home can help residents develop the skills and accountability they need to sustain sobriety and achieve long-term recovery.
