Sober Living

What should I consider when picking sober living?

  1. Location: Is the sober living close to the places you need, such as outpatient treatment, work, school, 12-step meetings, family etc.? 
  2. Rooms: Are the rooms shared? And who will you room with?
  3. Rules: What are the rules of the house? Find out what the rules are and consider whether you will have a hard time following them.
  4. Residents: Who lives there already? Will you be comfortable with them?

Things to consider when choosing sober living

The length of treatment will depend on several factors such as the severity of the addiction. Patients suffering from fentanyl addiction suffer greatly when access to fentanyl is swiftly cut off.

So, treatment can take up to a year. During this period, patients might go through therapeutic treatment, a detox program, and other maintenance programs.

Your Situation

Whether you’re a professional, single parent, or a college student, you’ll want to find a sober living that can meet your needs. For example, a single parent might want to choose a sober living that will allow them to have their child, and a college student might opt for a college-sponsored sober living.


Reputation of the sober living is huge. Have they been in business for long? What has the experience been for other people who have lived there? Ask to talk to current residents and past residents if possible. If the facility will not allow you to talk to existing tenants then be wary of signing up with them.


Location is another important thing to consider when choosing a sober living. If you don’t have reliable transportation you might want to consider living close to your job, your favorite 12-step meeting, and your outpatient treatment facility, if you’re attending one. You’ll also want to consider if the sober living is located in a safe neighborhood.


Considering the size of the sober living is important. If you’re a social person you might want to consider a larger sober living, and if you aren’t a social person you might want to consider a smaller, more private, sober living.
