"However, it's not always self-evident what 'sober living' is nor where one can find sober living programs in a province like British Columbia or Ontario, etc."

SOBER LIVING: AN IMPORTANT STEP IN RECOVERY
Here is background on this release. Sober living is a bridge from the highly structured and supported environment of drug rehab and/or alcohol treatment program life to the real world. It can be very jarring going from rehab back to regular life. Especially if the client's home environment or daily routine was part of their previous substance user lifestyle. Sober living is a good transition for people leaving primary care.
Sober living is usually a post-treatment option, but some programs accept people who have not been to treatment before. These programs offer a safe and supportive living environment for those wanting to live a sober life. They often require that the clients attend a certain number of meetings a week, and most require that the clients participate in domestic duties like cooking and cleaning as they are designed to help reintegrate people to regular life. Another aspect of these programs is that they usually ask that clients be employed, or volunteer, or be working towards an education. This is again to demonstrate a willingness to live a productive healthy life.
Interested persons are urged to read the article for more information and those who reside in British Columbia (as an example province) are urged to click over via the embedded links to drug rehab, alcohol treatment, and/or "sober living" programs available in their province.
