Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services (Hattiesburg, Miss.) has announced the inclusion of Next Step Sober Living to its selection of patient care programs. Next Step Sober Living is designed for male patients, ages 18 and up, who have successfully completed a residential addiction treatment program and need a supportive transitional environment.
The program is led by a veteran team of Pine Grove professionals including Next Step Sober Living’s Director, Issac Boose. He said, “Our intention is to help our patients further develop the tools they will need to live a sober lifestyle by providing them with a safe environment to practice recovery behaviors in a community of like-minded peers.”
Next Step Sober Living helps patients acclimate to a productive routine by attending school, working, or volunteering, while living at one of Pine Grove’s fully equipped cottages located on the facility’s main Hattiesburg campus. Patients participate in weekly group therapy sessions, meet individually with John Herrington, one of Pine Grove’s experienced and licensed therapists and attend regular Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.
Patients participate in the program for a minimum of three months and extended support is available.
