Sober Living Facility & Recovery Program | Primary Purpose Behavioral Health

Many people we serve are unable to remain sober for any meaningful length of time, and find it difficult to maintain stable, safe and functional housing, trapping them in a cycle of relapse, homelessness or both. Clients often have families, jobs, responsibilities and a drive to recover - and a sober living facility is often the answer.


Our treatment program provides opportunities for safe and sober community living, paired with critical mental health counseling programs, oriented towards the particular struggles of persons with chemical addictions.

Phase 1: 6-8 weeks minimum

Phase 2:  16 weeks minimum

Phase 3: 8 weeks minimum

How does Sober Living Work? | Primary Purpose Behavioral Health

Phase I: Assessment and Stabilization (6 - 8 weeks minimum)

The first phase of this program involves intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) three times a week, which may include group therapy such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These therapeutic interventions aim to help individuals develop coping skills and mindfulness techniques to manage cravings and triggers associated with substance abuse. In addition, individuals receive individual counseling once a week to address personal issues related to substance abuse.

Case management is also provided once a week to help individuals access community resources and support. An Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) works with clients to address their medical needs and may provide medication-assisted treatment if appropriate. Finally, individuals work with a Peer Support and Community Support Associate to develop a recovery program and support network to help establish healthy habits and routines.

Phase II: Transition to Employment and Independence (16 weeks minimum)

 The second phase of the program focuses on completing DBT and ACT group therapy, while continuing individual counseling and working with a case manager to develop employment opportunities. The goal is to help individuals transition to a more independent and self-sufficient lifestyle by finding and maintaining employment. The case manager assists in developing job search skills, building resumes, and connecting individuals with community resources such as vocational training programs. During this phase, individuals continue to receive individual counseling to address any personal issues or challenges that may arise. The APRN continues to monitor and address clients' medical needs.

Phase III: Reintegration and Ongoing Support (8 weeks minimum)

The third and final phase of the program focuses on full reintegration back into society. Individuals continue to receive individual counseling to address any ongoing issues and to develop a relapse prevention plan. The goal is to help individuals maintain sobriety and continue to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Additionally, individuals are encouraged to participate in community support groups and activities to build a support network and maintain connections with others in recovery and recovery programs. The case manager may provide ongoing support and assistance as needed to ensure a successful transition to independent living. The APRN continues to monitor and address clients' medical needs throughout this phase.
