What is a Sober Living Home or Program?
A sober living home is a group residence specifically designed for people who are in the process of recovering from addiction. It provides a supportive living environment that is drug-free and alcohol-free, so there are no direct addiction triggers around. Sober living homes are usually used in a larger addiction recovery program as a step-down option after completing more intensive or personalized rehab therapies.
Typically, sober living home residents must follow a set of guidelines, such as:
- Abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
- Attend 12-step support group meetings.
- Maintain personal hygiene and cleanliness of shared living areas.
- Notify staff of any absences or overnight stays elsewhere.
- Never threaten or disrespect other residents.
- Respect the property and belongings of others in the home.
- Follow curfew and/or restrictions on overnight guests.
- Participate in household responsibilities.
Who Can Benefit from a Sober Living Program?
Sober living homes can be beneficial for a variety of people in different stages of addiction recovery. Anyone who feels that they need addiction support or that their own home should consider using a sober living program as part of their addiction recovery plan.
We often recommend a sober living home program to:
- Individuals who have completed a drug or alcohol rehab program and need a supportive space to transition back into everyday life while maintaining their sobriety.
- People who do not require a higher level of care, such as intensive outpatient treatment, but are not yet ready to return to their previous living situation.
- People who do not have a safe or supportive living environment at home or who may be vulnerable to relapse due to stressors or negative influences in their home environment.
- Individuals who want to be part of a recovery community and build supportive relationships with others who are also working towards long-term sobriety.
- People who need stability and structure in their daily routine to help them maintain a sober lifestyle.

Is It More Difficult to Remain Sober Alone?
For some people, social isolation is the greatest risk of relapse after completing a drug or alcohol addiction program. Without other people around to check in and offer support, they might get lost in their own thoughts and feelings, which can lead to unsafe behaviors like substance abuse.
To help avoid isolation that puts you at risk of relapse, you should consider a temporary stay in a sober living home. Even if your current household feels comfortable, the sense of community and support that you can build at a sober living home can be invaluable, especially if you live alone. Through a sober living program, you can learn how to enjoy sobriety, as well as many aftercare methods that make it easier to say ‘no’ the next time you are offered drugs or alcohol.
