Sober Living Homes for Troubled Young Adults in Alaska
Sober Living Homes are residences that are alcohol and drug-free. They are designed housing for troubled young adults who are in recovery. These residences provide kids between the ages of 18 and 25, both men and women in recovery from addiction, an independent living environment with fully integrated therapeutic support services. They also have access to many recreational activities and special events associated with effective therapeutic healing.
These programs are ideal for youthful men and women from Alaska who are attending college or planning to return to college and looking for a sober place to live, develop healthy friendships, and achieve academic success. Please call (866) 439-0354 to speak with a professional.
Drug-free housing provides a safe haven for those who wish to re-enter mainstream society after a struggle with substance addiction. The peer group plays a key role where individuals going through after-care may not get the understanding they need from friends or family, who can not fully understand their situation.
Other young adults from Alaska in the same situation can relate, and therefore provide a powerful support structure. Living in the home is a transition. It gets the individual ready for the day when they get their own apartment and return to a drug-free life on their own.

Important facts that parents should know..
For some teens, wanting to get a piercing is par for the course and as the child is entering adulthood, the need for independence is frequently stronger than the child’s common sense. Helping your child to obtain a safe piercing is a wiser course of action than forbidding him/her to go and get one.
Young adults often test parents to see if they will over-react, before they trust them with their biggest concerns. So when your kid comes to you with bad news, take a deep breath and stay calm so that you can listen instead of yelling and getting mad, which completely shuts down the conversation.
