We see a world where every person in recovery has access to a supportive, healthy, and safe home environment built on respect, focused on recovery, and led by peers.
What is a Sober House?
Community living designed to support the needs of those in early recovery through structure, peer accountability, and organizational oversight
House Mentor and staff to lead and support recovery communities
Drug and alcohol screens, curfew, house rules, and peer accountability
Residency costs are straightforward, affordable, and all-inclusive; all rents are private pay
We offer structured sober houses for men and women where every guest is supported in their recovery journeys. Guests live together as a family to develop the tools and strengthen their character in order to live free from substance abuse. Our homes allow for independence while guided by a set of recovery-focused house rules, standards, and expectations. The core of our structure is abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Guests are engaged in their personal recovery journey by attending meetings and working with a sponsor and our House Mentor for support and encouragement. Guests adhere to a curfew, submit to drug and alcohol screenings, and participate in home and community events.

- Guests pay rent weekly or monthly; we don’t accept health insurance
