The SLE (sober living environment) movement began on the West Coast in the United States and has spread around the country. Sober Living is really a name for a house of people who have live together with the common goal is live a sober life. Since they all share the same goal, it makes recovery easier and creates a fellowship. Sober Living houses provide much more than other transitional living environments. Many of them are structured around 12-step programs and sound recovery methodologies.
Many are also certified or governed by Sober Living Coalitions or Networks. Residents are often required to participate in 12-step meetings, take drug tests and show demonstrably that they are taking important steps to long lasting recovery.
A sober living house is an interim step on the path to sobriety where addicts can live in a supervised and sober environment with structure and rules, i.e. mandatory curfews, chores and therapeutic meetings.
In many cases, successfully maintaining sobriety requires you to alter everything about their previous lives when they were actively addicted to alcohol and other drugs. This could include changing jobs, eliminating friends and even abandoning loved ones who are deemed toxic to their sobriety. Having the extra pressure of living in a very affordable home with other sober people, makes it easier to start over.

I did not know where to go when I needed help for my drug and alcohol problems. I had medical insurance but it was too confusing to figure out if addiction treatment was covered. Feeling all alone, I decided to quit on my own, and I almost died. I don’t want anyone to go through what I did. That is why I created 800 Recovery Hub.
