A sober living home is meant to serve as a safe haven for recovering addicts to reintegrate back into society. Also known as a recovery home, we allow you to live in a controlled environment free from drugs and alcohol as you learn social skills for living on your own. While each home is different, various private, medical, social, and psychiatric programs are typically offered in addition.
Most sober living homes are same-sex dormitories and have a flexible admissions process. The goal is to teach you essential life skills and working knowledge so you can find stability in their personal relationships, careers, and even continuing education. Normally, rent is paid through a “sliding scale” method depending on your employment/financial status or whether their health insurance covers their treatment.
After a period of successful recovery and if proven ready, you will be encouraged to move out on your own with other sober-minded roommates. A medical professional will first evaluate you and determine if you are healthy and fit to re-enter society with minimal risk of relapsing or other issues.
