Real Deal Sober Living Review
Real Deal Sober Living is a safe and supportive transitional living program located in Texas. With several upscale men’s and women’s houses throughout the state, Real Deal promotes combining a healthy lifestyle with the principles of the 12-steps. Clients in this program are provided with all the essentials, and have the opportunity to continue their treatment in one of the vetted local intensive outpatient programs (IOP) in the area. There is also group therapy, fitness and nutrition, and life skills provided throughout each client’s time in their residences. Real Deal Sober Living offer two packages which differ in amenities and price. One is the “Signature” Program and the other is their “Barebones” Program.
Accommodations and Amenities
The “Signature” residences are located in Northwest Dallas, downtown Dallas, Plano and Richardson, Texas. These are typically large, multi story houses with amenities like pools, spacious bedrooms, bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs, and new appliances. They also feature gym memberships, transportation, food, personal TV’s and a nutritional program. The signature plan also includes meals.
The “Barebones” facilities are also homes that, like the signature facilities, accommodate about six clients in each, through with a few less amenities for a lower monthly rate. There are some private bedrooms, through most are shared between two or three clients. This track provides a fully furnished residence, but the cost does not include food.
Rules and Regulations
Real Deal aims to be an all-inclusive sober living experience. They emphasize the importance of clean living through well-balanced meals, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. The days begin with a guided meditation and goal-setting. There are daily AA meetings and on-site management 24 hours a day. There are also regular drug screenings.
Typically clients move into one of the Real Deal residences directly after leaving an inpatient program, though if that is not the case they need to be at least 30 days sober. Once moved in clients have a little down time before they need to enroll in school or get a job. There are job placement services offered as part of the sober living experience.
Real Deal is associated with several IOP’s throughout Texas and is able to connect clients who need outpatient care. There is also weekly group therapy held on site every Friday evening. Clients in the signature programs also receive individual therapy and life skills training. There are also Sunday accountability groups.
The signature programs are able to accommodate pets. In addition, family members are provided with a weekly progress report for their loved ones.
Real Deal Sober Living gives their clients a chance to create a community within their homes that enhances their recovery experience. The 12-steps is an important element to the success of their treatment, and clients attend meetings regularly while working to connect more with their fellow clients in the house. This program is especially appealing for young people who are new to sobriety.
