Who can live in our sober living home?
The residents must have gone through detox and a recovery home before going to our sober living community. This makes sense because residents must be able to stay sober in order to live in this type of home. Thus, recovering addicts who already have some sobriety under their belt and have tools to help them stay sober may be accepted. We help our residents with jobs, college courses, GED preparation, and some transportation using our Phase two program.
How much does it cost?
Sober living residents must pay rent each month. The rent usually amounts to between $500 and $600 per month. This includes utilities, food and furniture. Residents have to pay rent on time and before coming but they do not have to pay first and last month’s rent.
Policies, Rules and Procedures
Residents still have to attend 12-step program meetings on a regular basis, work with a sponsor attend weekly church services, and may have to see a counselor while living at our sober living home. This is not included in your monthly rent. We try to ensure that our residents can afford to live there so people who desire to stay sober are able to have a safe environment in which to do so.
Sober living homes are not for everybody; some people may need to go through detox and a recovery program before they can successfully live in our sober environment. However, our home will provide a supportive, community type feel to transition from the addictive lifestyle to one of sobriety and responsibility. Living in this type of home can aid sobriety and make it more likely that recovering addicts will remain in recovery for the long term.
