A Simple Yet Effective Approach To Help Men Struggling With Addiction

Our Approach to Sober Living

Open. Honest. Willing. Our Approach to Sober Living

At Real Recovery we believe that everyone who has struggled with addiction can lead a successful, purpose-filled life in recovery if we, as alcoholics and addicts, are willing to be open, honest, and willing to follow a simple process on a daily basis.

All men can recover from the chronic disease of addiction when they are given a safe, structured, supportive environment that provides accountability and the tools and opportunities to effect real change in their lives.

We know from our sober living program’s alumni (previous graduates) and from the collective experience of millions throughout the 12-step rooms, that long-term recovery is possible when individuals in early sobriety have an opportunity to build a strong foundation, support network, and gain the tools/resources necessary to grow in all areas of their life — physical health, emotional/mental health, spiritually, personal and professional.

Who We Can Help Stay Sober

Our sober living program is designed to help men who may be new to recovery or recently completed an in-patient addiction treatment program, men who are coming back from more research (relapse), and individuals who have clean time but recognize they need a more accountable environment to prevent a potential relapse.

Recovery isn’t easy. It is easier, infinitely better, and more rewarding than the life many of us were living when drinking or using drugs.

Real Recovery Sober Living emphasizes the importance of personal accountability, everyone that steps through our doors are responsible for their recovery. We provide the resources and environment to give our residents a fighting chance, many of the men who have successfully completed our three-phase sober living program are still sober today, but we can’t force anyone not to pick up a drink, drug, or work a thorough 12-step program. We can help lay the tools necessary to achieve long-term sobriety, the rest is up to you.
