We operate a Quasi Residential Unit, translated into English this means that you will live in a supported, real world environment that helps to reduce relapse rates. Some treatment centres choose to keep clients isolated from the real world and the triggers that make you want to drink or use drugs. Our evidence shows that the safest time to deal with these triggers is when you are engaged in treatment and supported groups. You will live in one of our houses a short walk from the treatment centre, with same-sex residents. You will share household tasks such as cooking, shopping and budgeting. You will have your own private bedroom, with a shared bathroom, kitchen and sitting room.

The kitchen has new appliances, including an oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle. All household and electrical goods are provided, including bedding and towels. Each house has a parking space and garage, with a shrubbed open garden at the front and a private turfed garden at the back.
Our sober living community in Luton comprises a range of properties in the town centre, all of which are within a 15 minute walk of our treatment centre. The houses are all four or five bedroom properties, with single bedrooms, shared kitchen, bathroom and living room with television and DVD player. All houses are double glazed with central heating.
Therapeutic benefits of sober living houses within the community
Our sober living communities provide a very helpful and safe training ground for Trust The Process clients to practise new behaviour. The intensive treatment programme during the week allows clients to process in a healthy way the situations and feelings that they are experiencing living in the houses. Many of our clients tell us when they leave us that recovering in the community has helped them to face up to everyday issues, that they would not have been able to do if they had been ‘locked away’ from society – such as walking past pubs and shopping in supermarkets where alcohol is readily available. You will have the support of your counsellor, your peers and the centre to confront everyday situations whilst living in the community.
Out of hours support from our sober living house team provides the professional safety net in the evenings and weekends. Our sober living house managers offer support, guidance and instruction to clients, completing house checks every evening and ensuring house rules are followed. They offer support to new clients who may need additional help to settle in and are also on call throughout the night for emergency intakes or situations. They complete health and safety house checks once a week and monitor property maintenance. They manage a team of volunteers, who are all former clients who have successfully completed our programme and therefore have a thorough understanding of our process.
