Sober Houses in California

For those living in California, sober living homes are a dime a dozen when compared with some other states in which the options are sometimes rather slim. The adequate availability of sober living homes in California doesn’t necessarily make it any easier to find a sober house that’s necessarily a right fit for your individual needs—sometimes this process can be lengthy, challenging and you may want to ask for some help.

Many different California sober living options exist including homes that are for women in recovery, men in recovery or for mixed gender allowing both men and women to live together. Some sober houses provide a place to stay for those recovering from a particular type of addiction such as alcohol addiction only or prescription drug addiction only while others have less restrictive guidelines that they follow when it comes to admitting a resident to live in the home.

Many recovering addicts struggle with the mere thought of sober living, California sober houses attempt to make this thought a little less challenging and easier to digest by providing a safe, supportive and clean environment that allows residents to share the costs of living with others, take part in regular support groups and continue to receive regular monitoring that ensures their continued sobriety even once they have completed an inpatient or residential treatment program.

Residents of a sober house are able to get support from other residents of the home who are also in recovery and having to deal with many of the same challenges along the way. Sober living is an excellent place for newly recovered addicts to make new friends and build bonds with others who are equally as committed as they are to sobriety and to achieving a lifestyle that facilitates lasting recovery.

California Sober Living Rules

One thing that makes sober living a safe transitional point for many recovering addict than simply moving on from treatment to live with friends or family members is the fact that sober houses have a set of rules and standards that all members of the household must adhere to and the resident manager or house manager is very adamant about making sure that every resident adheres to these rules on a daily basis.

Some of the rules you can expect to encounter when you enter sober living include:

  • A requirement to remain sober and clean and to submit to random drug or alcohol testing
  • No violence
  • Paying rent and other fees on time
  • Finding and maintaining adequate employment
  • Continuing to attend regular support groups, counseling or therapy sessions

These are just a sample of the rules that are commonly encountered in California halfway houses and sober living environments throughout the state.

The rules that you must adhere to will likely include some of these simple rules as well as a comprehensive list of additional rules including curfews and limitations on visitors to the home—this all depends on each residence as the rules are individual set forth in each California sober living environment to meet the needs of those in recovery and to ensure their continued sobriety and safety.
