If you or someone you know has recently quit drinking or using drugs, sober living may be the next best route for continued recovery in and clean and sober environment. Main sober living homes provide residents with a safe, clean and sober environment in which they can live with others who are also in recovery from addiction and who share similar sobriety goals.  These homes are group homes that specifically cater to those in recovery from various addiction related issues.

Main sober living residents are expect to abstain from the use of drugs or alcohol while they live in the sober house.  Unlike treatment or rehabilitation, when living in a sober house, residents are allowed to come and go as they please but typically must adhere to a curfew.  Random drug or alcohol screenings are commonly used to ensure that all residents of the home remain clean and sober while they live in the sober house.

What Types of Rules are There?

Every sober house in Maine has its own rules and regulations.  Some require those living in the home to hold a job, go to school or continue with regular attendance at support groups.  All sober living homes will have the primary requirement that in order to live in the home the resident must be sober and must remain sober.

Other rules that you can expect to encounter when you enter a sober living environment in Maine include the need to respect others who are also in recovery, the need to take part in the sharing of household chores and the requirement of paying rent and associated fees on time.

Residents of sober homes are required to agree to all of the rules of the home prior to moving into the residence and they are expected to understand that there are consequences when the rules are broken.  Some of the most common consequences that are used include fines, writing essays, having curfew reduced so that the resident has less free time or eviction from the sober house.
