Nationally Accredited & Recognized Sober Living Program in Tampa Bay

A team of dedicated recovery professionals committed to
giving everyone an opportunity to change their lives.

Real Recognizes
Real Recovery

At Real Recovery, we strive to uphold and maintain the highest standards among the sober living community. Our Tampa Bay sober living program has been nationally recognized and accredited by industry associations, regulatory bodies, and distinguished agencies in the addiction and recovery field.

We founded Real Recovery because we personally experienced what it’s like to live in a “sober house” (read: “flophouse”) where management only cared about rent being paid on time and most residents were anything but clean.

We believe every person who wants to get clean and stay sober should be given the opportunity to do so in a safe, structured, and accountable environment that they can be proud to call their temporary home.

As a parent of an adult son who was taking the next step in recovery, Real Recovery really showed up for the support, structure and fellowship needed to help our son move forward. I recommend you visit and meet some of the residents to know you are not alone in your path towards sobriety!

Definitely had some worries before coming in here because I'd always had a fixed idea in my mind of what a "sober house" is (shady, run down, etc) Luckily Real Recovery is nothing like that. The place is newly renovated- it's got a pool, nice couches and cable in the living room and smart tv's in every bedroom. The guys here are all cool and always willing to help a newcomer in anyway they can. It really made my transition back into the world as smooth as possible. I honestly owe my sobriety to their program.

I have been to other Sober Living houses and Real Recovery is the best. They drug test to keep people honest. They make sure clients are responsible and clean their house. The House Managers are awesome. If you are serious about recovery this is a great place to live. Several meetings on site.

My 21 yr. old son came there after rehab in Tampa He was from out of state and knew no one.

He has had nothing, but a most positive experience!

His words ”I’ve met many life long friends”.

Thank God he had the opportunity and I know it’s helped him and made all the difference in his journey.

He loves the area and it’s been life changing for him.

With the meetings and good atmosphere and awesome influences he’s done great in his recovery.

Absolutely the right choice for him.

I recommend this and as a Mother and am so very thankful. 💙
