What is Sober Living?
Sober living houses also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug and alcohol rehab programs. Sober living homes serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society. Many sober living homes also accept people who are in recovery from substance abuse but have not recently completed a rehabilitation program.
