I cannot speak for everyone, but many of you will not be able to function at a sober recovery house while you are still experiencing withdrawal. However, post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) is a little different. Some days you will feel great and other days you might wonder if you are still sick from opiates. This is what characterizes PAWS.
Others may feel that coming to a sober living environment is the only way you will be motivated to quit using drugs. PAWS may still be an issue, but you can work through it with the proper tools.
Don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging. We are going to give you a list of tools to help you heal from post-acute withdrawal syndrome at a Pa recovery house. Post-acute withdrawal syndrome is not something to take lightly.

Here is a list of tools that you must choose to use, no matter how silly any of them sound. You will find them to be extremely helpful.
