Studies have proven that individuals who transition into a sober living environment after primary treatment dramatically increase their likelihood of remaining clean & sober for good!
Pay It Forward - Clean & Sober Living is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in San Antonio, Texas that helps men and women whose lives have been destroyed by their alcohol or drug addiction by providing sober living assistance and programs to help them rebuild their lives in long-term recovery.
Chances are, you know someone who has struggled with addiction and how their disease affects not only themselves, but everyone around them – their families, their children, their workplace and the community as a whole.
Drug and alcohol addiction is a widespread epidemic in the San Antonio area. The disease of addiction knows no socioeconomic boundaries. Any type of individual can fall to addiction. It is a contributing factor to nearly every problem area of our community's quality of life, including domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, poverty, homelessness, hunger, lack of health care, unemployment, criminal activity, drunk and drugged driving and more.
Primary substance abuse treatment or incarceration is not enough to aid in the long term recovery of those suffering with addiction. Even after treatment, alcoholics and addicts still are faced with returning to the same people, places and things that influenced them during their addiction, potentially back to the streets, due to little to no family or social support, no job, no money, insurmountable stress and weak coping skills that lead many back to relapse and continued homelessness, unemployment, poverty and crime.
The problem that we address is that after primary substance abuse treatment or incarceration, those in addiction recovery are still faced with potentially returning to the streets and substance abuse, due to having nowhere safe to go, having little to no family or social support, no job, insurmountable stress and weak coping skills that lead many back to relapse. Without a supportive environment in which to practice the tools they learned in treatment, this cycle continues again and again, as evidenced by their repeated attempts at treatment.
Treatment alone is just not enough.
