Easing the Transition From Treatment to Recovery

Why Sober Living and Recovery Coaching are Important to Recovery

Transitional sober living and recovery coaching offer many benefits to people recovering from addiction and are key to successful long-term recovery. Sober living facilities provide a safe, structured, healthy living environment for men and women to continue to work on what they have learned in treatment and build upon their sobriety while offering much needed peer support. Certified recovery coaches help individuals affected by substance use disorder by providing guidance and direction on the journey to recovery. They develop and implement a recovery plan, ensure a strong support system is in place as well as making sure each person is using all the recovery tools available to best reach their goals.

At Herren Project, we view both as critical tools for those new to recovery in supporting their journey providing for better recovery outcomes and sustainable addiction recovery.

Herren Project Recovery Scholarships

Herren Project offers sober housing scholarships and recovery coaching mentors to positively support steps towards living a substance-free life. Recovery scholarship packages are available to men and women in treatment nationwide and provide financial and emotional support for those working to continue to heal their lives after treatment.

Candidates are given a chance to get back on their feet and transition into their new sober life in a safe and successful way without the immediate financial burden of paying rent right after treatment. Our goal is to support and empower individuals as they transition out of drug or alcohol addiction treatment and into recovery to help them establish a new, healthy lifestyle.
