If you or someone you love has recently quit drinking or using drugs and needs a place to stay where they can continue their recovery in a clean and sober environment, a sober living home may be the best option. In Alaska, sober living homes are rather difficult to come by but they do exist in some of the more rural areas as well as major cities such as Anchorage and Fairbanks. Sober living homes are an excellent transitional step for those who are already making their way through addiction recovery, have been sober for at least 30 days and need some additional support while entering back into society post addiction treatment.

What is a Sober House?
A sober house is a group home where addicts come together to live, share the amenities of the home and share the expenses associated with living in the home. Most of the sober houses in Alaska and other areas of the country are privately owned but there are also individually owned sober houses that are operated by charity organizations and businesses such as addiction treatment or recovery centers.
A sober house is not a rehab center, it does not provide counseling and therapy and it is not a place to begin addiction recovery—it’s a place where an individual can smoothly transition from addiction treatment back into a semi-normal routine in society. These homes allow residents to come and go as they please provided they follow the rules of the house which typically include remaining clean and sober, paying rent and holding a job.
For residents of Alaska, sober house accommodations are an ideal step toward sustained recovery post addiction treatment. Transitioning into a sober house allows the recovering addict more freedom than he or she would have in a treatment facility but not as much freedom as may be afforded living on their own or with friends or family. These homes provide recovering addicts with a safe, clean and sober environment to adjust to the normalcy of living sober, interacting in society and adjusting to their new life in recovery.
