Why Consider Community Housing
It can be nerve-wracking to go directly from drug addiction treatment back to everyday life in society. TruHealing Gaithersburg’s independence rehab is designed to help our clients learn coping skills to manage high-risk triggers and new ways to move through the world.
Living independence is an important aspect of time spent in community housing. Clients have the option to continue group therapy sessions at our rehab facility, attend meetings, and return to work, home, and childcare obligations. Our community housing staffers are always available to help manage situations and assist clients with reintegration into society.

Living in Community Housing is a Form of Aftercare
Staying in community housing can be viewed as an extension of a rehab program. It allows extra time for clients to work on their new sober life while maintaining a safety net. There is also accountability as you live with like-minded individuals who are also going through the challenging process of finding new ways to function in everyday society without returning to the cycle of abuse.
Community Housing and Relapse Prevention
It’s important to remember that sobriety is more than simply ceasing abusing addictive substances. A person needs to deal with the core issues that led to addiction in the first place.
It is a good idea to find a mental health counselor who can help you on your path towards lasting sobriety. Individual sessions with a therapist can help you manage cravings and temptations to engage in problematic behavior. A therapist can help you develop strategies to avoid relapse encounters with high-risk triggers.
It’s important to find healthy and positive ways to find joy in sober life. Once a person in recovery lives independently, they tend to discover there is a lot of free time on their hands. Addictions take up a great deal of someone’s time and energy. After undergoing treatment, clients in recovery need to learn ways to fill their time with healthy and positive activities.
Those who have recently undergone treatment and are temporarily living in community housing can help guide you on the right path towards finding rewarding ways to spend your time, teach you how to avoid pitfalls, and keep you accountable to remain sober.
TruHealing Gaithersburg’s community housing program helps educate our clients on life skills, including:
- Developing positive self-care habits
- Establishing healthy routines
- Time management
- Finding hobbies
