Our residents live in a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment. Our facility’s surroundings promote the opportunity for you to be able to continue your life of sobriety. To that end, many sober livings assign a range of chores and house duties to residents. These duties can include weekly tasks as well as daily ones.

It’s important to know that sober living houses are not treatment centers. The staff doesn’t provide any clinical or medical services, but many residents attend outpatient treatment or participate in recovery-based groups while they live there. As a resident of any of our sober homes taking personal responsibility for your actions is important, and there are sober house certain expectations that are required for continued residency. However, we are set up from the very beginning to allow for these successes to happen. First and foremost, we always want our residents to feel safe and comfortable within our walls. On the outside of the house, we provide beautiful outdoor surroundings, a backyard pond and a three-car garage.
