Sober Living Services
is sober living the right fit for me?
Sober living is a wonderful service that has helped countless individuals find lives of joy and purpose, but not everyone is ready for it just yet. Recovery is a long process, and those who have not yet started do best in a more clinical setting such as inpatient rehab.
The ideal candidate for sober living moves in directly after checking out of an inpatient treatment center and has at least thirty days of sober time. This ensures they have the skills and preparation needed to thrive in the less intensive sober living environment. Sometimes, candidates move in to sober living from their old accommodations, but they have usually been able to get sober using community resources and are simply looking for some extra support as they navigate early recovery.
Someone who is unable to stay sober at all may find it difficult to succeed in a sober living environment. While thirty days of sobriety is still considered “early recovery” by any measure, there is a huge difference between thirty days and zero. Sober living facilities are not typically equipped to handle issues like detox, withdrawal, intense cravings, and mental health issues that often crop up in the first thirty days. These problems are best treated by medical professionals in a clinical setting.

If sober living is not a good fit, it might be a good idea to find an inpatient rehab to get to a better place first.
Finding a job can be one of the most challenging (and important) parts of early recovery. That’s why we partner with Employee Solutions to make sure all our residents find work within ten days of moving in. It’s all about helping residents reintegrate as happy, healthy, productive members of society.
Employee Solutions has been operating out of Farmer’s Branch, Texas, since 1997. It started with zero clients and has grown to become one of North Texas’ largest staffing agencies. Real Deal is proud to partner with a business nationally recognized for its growth as a private staffing agency.
Intensive Outpatient and one-on-one counseling
We work with many IOP (intensive outpatient) programs that transport residents to and from their treatment centers. In life, one size does not fit all, and that is doubly true in addiction recovery. That's why we believe in finding treatment that is the best clinical fit for each resident.
We also make sure our residents have the opportunity to participate in counseling to address any underlying issues in their lives. A wide range of options to choose from ensures each resident meets with a professional who is the right fit for them.
When it comes to addiction, more than just the one using the drugs or alcohol gets affected. Often, the family is hit hardest. That's why we started our Family Program.
Hosted by Ryan Rodriguez, the family program meets on the first and third Monday of each month. It helps put families back together by rebuilding relationships and teaching family members how to deal with their loved ones' addiction.
We know full well how important accountability is in recovery. Sometimes having someone there to watch over us can make all the difference. That's why we created The Watchdog.
The Watchdog will live up to his name by watching over residents from the beginning to the end of their stay at Real Deal, making sure no one falls through the cracks. His duties include contacting families weekly and making sure each resident is meeting his goals and living up to his full potential.
