Get Started



Open a New Sober Living Home

Just getting started? Most of our Operators began their journey with a dream to open a business and build a better world. Most of our Operators are new to the sober living field and opened their first home with Vanderburgh Sober Living. Operators need to have passion for business and serving those in recovery, but don’t need any special training or education to open their sober house. Our training and Operator development services cover all aspects of the business and can bring any new Operator up to speed quickly so they can make an impact and build wealth.

We have worked with many existing recovery home Operators to join the Vanderburgh Sober Living community. These Operators have enjoyed better visibility, lower operating costs, higher margins, and significant expansion of their business using the VSL system and support structure.
