Recovery housing, also known as sober living or halfway houses, provides a supportive and structured living environment for individuals recovering from addiction. These residences offer a crucial transitional step between intensive treatment programs and independent living. Recovery housing promotes sobriety by enforcing house rules, implementing regular drug testing, and providing access to counseling and support groups. Residents benefit from a peer-oriented community, where they can share experiences and receive encouragement from others on a similar journey. The goal of recovery housing is to foster personal growth, develop essential life skills, and promote long-term recovery and successful reintegration into society.

What Is Sober Living?

The process of recovering from active addiction often requires sustained, long-term, and targeted approaches that are designed to reduce the likelihood of relapse and to help improve a person’s ability to manage their responsibilities. We know it takes time for new patterns to take root as healthy habits. A high-quality sober living environment can provide long-term structure, support, and continued care to help you build a strong foundation for lasting recovery.

High-quality sober living homes offer clean, safe, and affordable living options that are free from drugs and alcohol. Recovery housing like this is also designed to help a newly recovering individual navigate the challenges of early sobriety.

Transformation House Sober Living offers in-house case management services provided by a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. We focus on life skill development and care coordination with outside clinical providers. Structured activities focus on fostering a sense of health, home, purpose, and community.

Sober Living in the Twins City North Metro Area

Transformation House offers a sober living program that allows both freedom and structure to co-exist. 12-step meetings and other therapeutic activities are encouraged, as they teach newly sober individuals how to take care of themselves and monitor their recovery daily. 

Clients in our North Metro Area sober living homes can attend school, work, and attend outside meetings. Clients have reasonable curfews and have chores or other projects within the house to keep it running smoothly while instigating normal daily habits. In this way, our sober living provides clients with useful skills that facilitate their transition back to the real world. 

We work with clients to understand their specific needs and determine how we can make the greatest impact on improving their quality of life. We don’t look for “quick fixes” and we are committed to building a foundation for long-term health and sobriety.

Please reach out to our admissions department for more information if you, your loved ones, or anyone you know is struggling with mental health issues. As part of Transformation House’s full continuum of care, residents can easily attend an Intensive Outpatient track.

Sober Living as Long-Term Support

The majority of people who use sober living as a tool after residential treatment find that long-term sobriety is easier to maintain and that the social network and friends they meet in sober living end up being supportive, long-term friends. Sober-living homes are generally not co-ed to help clients focus on their recovery without distraction.  

Transformation House encourages our clients to use sober living as an additional form of support after a drug and alcohol rehab primary program is completed. Drug and alcohol abuse are behaviors that develop over time. Even after individuals form new habits, a supportive network of friends and positive role models help them to maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
