New Day halfway house

What is a halfway house?

Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations

A halfway house is a safe place for early recovery substance users to reintegrate back into society all the while boarding in a thearaputic environment where a recovery community can flourish through guidelines and expectations that assist in the recovery process

A halfway house is not a medical facility and does not cater for detoxing clients it is for substance abusers who have cleaned up and want to be able to gain long-term sobriety

The home provides a guided and structured living atmosphere, with the freedom to get your life back on track. You can work, attend meetings, go to the gym, visit your family, etc. Some rules and guidelines need to be met, such as curfews, providing a clean urine sample or breathalyser, attending some meetings, step-work, etc.

5 benefits of halfway house

Top 5 benefits to adding a halfway house as part of your recovery.

#1 Encourages accountability

Halfway houses offer a structured environment with guidelines. These guidelines are there to teach responsible living. For substance abusers, the simplest tasks are sometimes the hardest. Being accountable for these tasks teaches responsibility and promotes fulfilment.

#3 Support

Living in a halfway house offers an opportunity to meet new associations and be part of a recovery community. This recovery community provides belonging, understanding and support in recovery. Not everyone has a support network at home, so this environment provides like-minded people that share and grow within their recovery.

#2 A safe environment

The only person you can change is yourself. Living in society exposes you to substances and alcohol. Living in a halfway house offers safety, as halfway houses have a zero tolerance for the abuse of substances and clients, are randomly and regularly tested to ensure safety.

#4 Tolerance

You don’t have to like everyone, but having tolerance, decency and respect is invaluable. A halfway house provides the opportunity to learn compromise while learning to manage the need to peopleplease. This environment also entrenches the importance of boundaries and includes support in setting up these boundaries. This can assist to function in the working environment as well.

New Day experiences

Just to share my experience at New day, i was staying there for a few months and it was an absolute pleasure.  The people in the house were fantastic, the living space was always clean, it made my recovery so much easier to be at New day. The counselling sessions was done at New day and always on a one-on-one basis and it helped me a lot!  My entire stay there was really great! I would recommend it to anyone who just finished primary care!
