Second Chance Recovery Residences Atlanta Sober Living Program

“We have been given a Second Chance”

Older Adult Sober Living for Baby Boomers

Second Chance offers a holistic approach for baby boomers ages 50 and up. This program addresses the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of substance abuse pertaining to later life issues.

The older adult has different generational issues that are addressed through:
1)  Two weekly gender specific peer groups
2)  Individual sessions with a credentialed counselor.

  • Grief and loss issues
  • Loss of career, identity, and purpose
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Declining health
  • Relapse prevention

We believe our chances of achieving permanent sobriety are increased by maintaining connections with Aftercare programs and building a solid foundation in the 12 steps of AA. This includes:

  • Daily meeting attendance
  • Working one on one with a 12 step sponsor
  • Aftercare group attendance

We have learned the older adult prospers with a daily productive schedule that includes volunteer work of part time employment, and participation in a health and fitness regime to enhance mental and emotional well-being. The Benson Senior Center is in close proximity to our community.
The Benson Center offers:

  • Physical fitness program
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Life enrichment classes
  • On site medical services
  • Pool and gymnasium
  • Nutritous breakfast and lunch at a reduced rate

The Benson Center offers free Uber transportation to and from their facility

We are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and structured environment for our clients to establish a solid base of recovery

Our program is based on the principles of the 12 Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is through these principles that we are committed to maintaining our sober living environment.
