Sober Living for Men in Tampa

What is a Sober Living Home?

A sober living home is more than just a place to stay. It’s a supportive environment tailored for individuals recovering from substance abuse and addiction. The urgency and importance of such facilities become evident when considering statistics; for instance, 2.5 million people in the U.S. used methamphetamine in 2020 alone.

Located in the vibrant city of Tampa, Real Recovery offers a sober living and recovery home that stands as a beacon of hope for men navigating their path away from such staggering statistics and toward a life of sobriety. As Florida’s third-largest city, Tampa isn’t just a backdrop; it plays an integral role in the recovery process. With a population of nearly 380,000 residents, it is a hive of activity, offering thriving local businesses, an expanding tech scene, and a robust job market. Real Recovery’s Tampa property merges the benefits of sober living with the vibrancy of urban life, ensuring residents are never far from meetings, essential shops, and exciting career opportunities.

How Long Can You Stay at a Sober Living House in Tampa?

Real Recovery’s sober living house in Tampa acknowledges the profound impact of substance use disorders in our community—past data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health for the Tampa-St. Petersburg MSA revealed that an alarming 188,000 persons were classified as having a substance use disorder.

Against this backdrop, our approach avoids a one-size-fits-all mentality. We understand that behind each number is an individual with a unique story and journey. Recognizing that recovery is deeply personal, we allow residents to stay for varying durations, depending on their specific needs and progress. This flexibility ensures that each individual can move forward at a pace that aligns with their unique needs, treatment progress, and personal goals for sobriety.

Education Opportunities at Real Recovery Sober Living in Tampa

We encourage every resident that can, to continue their education, even if it’s only a couple of classes each semester. Pursuing a degree and obtaining relevant certifications is one of the best ways to improve your economic mobility (ability to increase your income), quality of life, become self-sufficient, learn new skills, and prepare yourself for today’s evolving job market needs.

Did you know that as a resident at Real Recovery you can receive an exemption that covers the cost of tuition and access fees to attend local community colleges and Florida universities, including the University of South Florida? It’s true!

It gets better – the University of South Florida’s main campus is only 20 minutes away from Real Recovery’s North Tampa sober living location.

The University of South Florida has something called the Homeless Tuition Waiver which is part of a statewide program (§ 31009.25, Fla. Stat.; 2020) to help individuals and families who want to create a better life but are experiencing less than ideal circumstances. Before you say, well I’m not homeless… well put your ego aside, remember we’re working on a program of willingness, honesty, and humility. Real Recovery is by definition “transitional housing” which means all residents meet the federal definition of “homeless.”
