Maintaining your sobriety post addiction treatment is the next step in the recovery process but also a challenging step at that. Indiana sober living environments such as halfway houses and sober houses provide residents with an opportunity to live in a clean and sober environment where others are also in recovery and working towards the ultimate goal of achieving lifelong sobriety. These homes have their own rules and regulations but do provide a generous stepping stone in the right direction along the path to recovery.


Most people who are newly recovering from addiction need some additional support when they first exit treatment and begin to use the sober living skills that they learned while in a residential rehabilitation setting. A sober house provides those in recovery with a place where they can continue to receive support, guidance and peer interaction in a clean and sober environment that helps to ensure their continued success in recovery.

Sober Living is NOT Rehab

Although sober living is not rehab and does not provide treatment for addiction, there are many benefits to living in a sober house but these benefits are really only appreciated by those who have already completed an addiction treatment program—here’s why:

If you have not completed addiction treatment prior to moving into a sober house, there’s a good chance that you won’t last very long in the sober living environment. Indiana sober living environments require that residents remain clean and sober while they are living in the home. In order for the home manager to ensure that residents remain clean and sober, most sober houses will randomly test residents for drugs or alcohol and in the event that a resident’s test comes back positive he or she will be evicted.

Sober House Rules

Each sober house has rules and regulations that the residents are expected to follow. While living in the sober house, the resident will be required to remain clean and abstain from the use of drugs or alcohol. Most sober houses in Indiana do not allow items that contain alcohol to be brought into the home such as mouthwash or similar products which could be used for the purpose of obtaining alcohol.

In addition to being required to stay sober and clean, other sober house rules that residents may be expected to follow include paying rent on time, sharing in household chores, being respectful of others in the household and adhering to a curfew. These rules are just a sample of some of the rules that come with entering into a sober living environment.
