Palm Beach Post Reports (Again) on “Sober Homes”

Written by:

Same story, different reporter.

Sober homes are good.

Sober homes are bad.

Carry a gun.

Protect your children.

Businesses in neighborhoods.

What’s not being reported?

Imagine if we didn’t have a Division of Health checking on restaurant sanitation quality. Would you go out to eat?

Or a Division of Hotels to make sure where you were staying was safe. Would you feel comfortable staying in a hotel?

Or if we only regulated the surgery but you had to find the place where the surgery was to occur….. and insurance would not pay for it?

Here, in this Rubik’s Cube that we call behavioral health and addiction “medicine,” housing is an integral component of recovery.

But only if it occurs in a true “recovery” residence.

Not a flop house.

Where the article misses the mark is that the reparenting and reprogramming of people’s behavior post-drug misuse only occurs in a recovery residences.

The counseling clinical space is where they “process.”

The home is where they implement what they have re-learned.

And it takes a “home,” not an institution.
