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 residents to live in a controlled environment free from drugs and alcohol as our clients learn social skills for living on their 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 recovering persons essential life skills and working knowledge so they find stability in their personal relationships, careers, and even continuing education. Normally, rent is paid through a “sliding scale” method, depending on the person and their employment/financial status or whether their health insurance covers their treatment.
After a period of successful recovery and if proven ready, residents are encouraged to move out on their own with other sober-minded roommates. A medical professional will first evaluate the resident and determine if they are healthy and fit to reenter society with minimal risk of relapsing or getting into trouble.
