Transitional housing like a halfway house or sober living residences are important for many people in addiction recover after a rehabilitation program because, for the people who do not have a place to live that is sober-friendly and stable, it provides the safe, drug-and alcohol-free environment they need to help them avoid relapsing and to reinforce the new healthy behaviors and habits they’ve learned in rehab.

Alumni Testimonials

Daybreak changed my life. The staff – from the nurses, therapists, managers, and most importantly – the on-site techs, were all extremely helpful in our recovery. Everything you need is available from detox all the way through residential treatment. (I did not participate in any further treatment options). If you or someone you love really wants the help, this is a great place to find it. This is definitely something that you take out what you put in, and if you participate in the groups, the therapy, and take advantage of the help that they willingly offer – you can make change here. Thanks to the Daybreak family, I am 101 days into a powerful new life.

Daybreak has been extremely beneficial in my recovery process. The staff, many of whom are in recovery themselves, have shown me repeatedly that they genuinely care about me and all the other clients here. This fact, combined with their knowledge on the recovery process, has benefited me more than any other treatment center in the past. My counselor, Holly, has been especially helpful to me. I would absolutely recommend Daybreak to a friend or anyone struggling with addiction.

Kyle M.

I cannot say enough about this place! Daybreak saved my life! From the minute I walked in the door I was treated with respect, dignity, and a compassion I had never experienced in any of the many other treatment facilities I had been to. What made the difference for me was the staff. The people who worked there truly cared about me and my recovery. There honestly was never a moment that I felt alone and the fact that many of the staff are in recovery themselves meant they truly understood what I was going through at my most vulnerable. Knowing these people were so invested in saving me from myself, were always there if I needed to talk, and that they honestly cared about me and my recovery undoubtedly made all the difference for me. Daybreak also maintains a family atmosphere in such beautiful facilities and makes sure that your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs are being met. I’ve never had such an amazing experience in treatment before. If you or a loved one is suffering please PLEASE let Daybreak give you the opportunity to get your life back.

Benefits of Sober Living with DayBreak

A sober living home is a shared community house you can move into during outpatient rehab or after you have completed a rehab program, with one or more house managers and several sober roommates. In most sober living homes, you can come and go as you please, doing normal activities like cooking and cleaning for yourself, but there are some unbreakable rules in a sober home that may include:

  • No drugs or alcohol inside the home
  • You must remain completely abstinent, and agree to random drug tests
  • Strict curfews
  • Rules around guests coming in or staying overnight
  • Maintaining continued attendance at recovery meetings, therapy, groups, etc.
  • Have a job or be participating in a full-time recovery program
  • On-time fee payment for rent etc.
  • Cooking and cleaning
  • Attending and participating in house meetings
  • Remaining respectful to other residents

Depending on the place you are living, the consequences to breaking these rules may include being removed from the home. You will need to be responsible for your own actions and take accountability. This type of structure is a good way for people leaving rehab to remain on track, especially during the initial transition back to life’s responsibilities like returning to work and seeing friends and family members again. Some sober community residential homes have additional services like on-duty nurses for those who need additional medically-assisted treatment in Bucks County, social workers, or other help.

At the DayBreak drug and alcohol rehab center, we know that environment plays a huge part in relapse prevention, and we can refer you to sober living homes in the Bucks County area for you to live in as you access our outpatient, partial hospitalization program, and intensive outpatient program services. With the help of our team, along with the sober living home facilitators, you will be able to strengthen your self-reliance, coping mechanisms, and recovery skills, while returning to a normal life.

Leaving inpatient rehab can feel overwhelming, and if you are not careful, you may move home and be surrounded by temptations and triggers, causing you to return to your old habits, leading to substance abuse and relapse. The environment and the social setting you live in after rehab can have a big influence on these choices, which is why many people will use sober transitional housing locations for a short or long period of time instead of moving home.

DayBreak provides transitional housing where you can attend outpatient rehab programs that are customizable and flexible, as you live in sober housing, so you can also go back to work or school, have time to spend with your family, and continue getting the help and support you need. Some other benefits of sober living with DayBreak are:

  • Never feeling alone or lost in your recovery. You will be living with sober roommates, and will be able to access our vast sober community through peer groups, group therapy, support, and alumni sober outings   
  • Having opportunities to try out new sober strategies and coping skills while being able to return ‘home’ to a safe sober environment, where your responsibility and accountability is valued and reinforced
  • Learning to be a good roommate and practice healthy life skill practices like house cleaning, budgeting, paying rent, exercising, cooking and shopping for yourself
  • The freedom to go to work and school and establish normal routines, with consistent support and stability
  • Living in a quiet and peaceful area, promoting rest and recovery in the countryside of Bucks County PA

Women’s Sober Living in Bucks County

Both genders face unique issues when it comes to recovery, and a women’s only sober home will provide a space for women who would feel safer in a home with no men, especially for those who have faced trauma due to abuse. There are programs for women with children who are facing childcare and custody issues, and as a female-only house for women, residents will not have to face sexual harassment, gender-based stigmas and stereotypes, instead living in a place that fosters female empowerment, communication, and independent living while recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.

Men’s Sober Living in Bucks County

Bucks County men’s only sober living homes provide a place where men can be themselves, without distraction. The gender-based issues and stigmas that men face are addressed head-on, including issues surrounding violence, compulsive behaviors, sexuality, trauma, emotions, and perceptions of weakness. Men can find new sober friends, gain independent living skills like cooking and cleaning, and continue on their journey to recover from substance abuse with full support.

Aftercare & Alumni Support

After inpatient detox and residential rehab in Bucks County have ended, you are not on your own. Many people find that the first few weeks, months, or even years after rehab are difficult, as you re-learn how to deal with triggers like boredom, stress, mental health issues, having a tough day at work, experiencing a loss, or attending a holiday celebration as a sober person.

At DayBreak, we recognize the importance of maintaining a continued connection to a strong sober community and can keep you connected to your peers through outpatient rehab and beyond. You can join:

  • 12-step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous
  • SMART recovery groups
  • Alumni gatherings and outings

We also provide the option to book appointments with doctors and therapists, join a group session, or talk to an addiction professional when you need to. We are here to help you stay clean and sober, long-term.
