Find Sober Living for a Loved One or Spouse

Thank You for Caring, Loving & Supporting the Addict or Alcoholic in Your Life

Parents, Spouses & Family Members Like You Are The Reason Some of Us are Alive Today

Go YOU! Seriously, you deserve a hug, high-five, and probably could use a vacation from the craziness.

I’m sure it’s been rough but we’re glad that you’ve landed on this page, it means that the person struggling with addiction in your life has someone as amazing as you, that just wants them to get better (among other things we’re sure ❤).

This page is intended for the YOU—the mother, the father, the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and of course the partner or spouse, who know just how much of a pain in the ass, we addicts and alcoholics can be.

We understand how difficult it has been—the turmoil, the hope, and the letdowns; the Cat 5 hurricane and the disaster that addiction brings to everything it touches. The absolute hell that people struggling with substance abuse issues put YOU, the loved ones through.

Whether it’s drugs or alcohol, the effects are essentially the same… a tornado of disfunction, pain, regrets, unhappiness, or worse. If this message seems odd and it hasn’t “got that bad” yet, you’re one of the lucky ones but you’re still in the right place!

There is a Solution in Sobriety

So here’s the good news—you can help the addict in your life by getting them the help they may or may not think they need but whether or not they decide to put in the work required to stay sober, you don’t need to endure or suffer any longer because they will have been introduced to a solution that’s been proven to work in millions if not tens of millions of lives (or more worldwide).

We have a few sections below with recommendations aimed at the two most common scenarios we encounter when speaking with family, significant others, partners and friends. Our recommendations are only suggestions, but they are based on our own, our parents, and the collective experience of the hundreds of other families who we have helped over the years.

Your situation may be a little different, you may have only recently discovered that someone you care about is struggling with addiction, or you’ve been battling it with them for years—meaning some of the stuff you’ll already know. In either case, the fastest way we can help is if you (727) 290-9156 and speak with one of our program administrators.

For The Parents & Relatives of Someone Struggling with Alcohol & Drug Abuse

Active addiction is a troublesome disease to deal with but being armed with the facts does make it easier to manage.

Is Your Loved One in Treatment?

If your loved one is in treatment, please complete the form below or call us to start the admissions process so we can secure their spot and help ensure they can safely transition from treatment while minimizing the opportunity to relapse.

It’s not uncommon for someone to relapse when they get out of treatment because when they get go home, they will be surrounded by triggers like old people, places, and things before moving into a sober living program.

We highly recommend making the transition from treatment to a safe, supportive, and structured sober living environment as seamless as possible to avoid any unnecessary opportunities for a relapse.

Our sober living properties off provide comfortable apartment-style accommodations and the recovery support your loved one will need to create a new sober lifestyle.

Has Your Loved One Recently Relapsed?

If your loved one has recently relapsed and is struggling to stay sober, please complete the form or call us.

As you may already know, addiction is chronic brain disease, relapse may seem like a failure but it is important to understand and recognize that remission (recovery) and recurrence (relapse) are part of the recovery process.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), 40–60% of people treated for substance use disorders relapse. These rates are similar other chronic medical illnesses like asthma and hypertension which exhibit rates of 50–70%.

What’s important right now is that we work together and provide the right environment with the right support they need to get back on their feet.

Hundreds of men have relapsed and were able to build a stronger foundation at Real Recovery.

Are Addiction, Recovery, & the 12-Steps a Relatively New Experience for You? This Section Is for You.

If you’re a family member who only recently realized someone you care about is struggling with alcohol or drugs, or this is a new experience for you, here’s some helpful information to make your life easier and so you can get the help your loved absolutely needs.

We’re here to help. Please take a few minutes to complete our admissions form. One of our program administrators will call you to discuss how we can help, our program, what treatment options may best meet your needs, and answer any questions you might have.

For The Spouse or Partner of a Person Struggling with Alcohol & Drug Abuse

Active addiction is a troublesome disease to deal with but being armed with the facts does make it easier to manage.

Is Your Spouse or Partner Struggling with Alcohol & Drug Abuse?

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a diagnostic term for alcoholism. Addiction to alcohol includes an obsession to drink despite the unfavorable impact of doing so; it creates the sensation of irrational cravings for alcohol that make the person physically dependent with increasing tolerance. It is a disease that affects 17 million adults (ages 18 as well as older) in the US, according to the National Institute on Alcoholic Abuse and also Alcoholism. More than half of those battling alcohol abuse are men (9.8 million), a staggering 8.4% of the total male population.

People suffering from alcoholism will try to hide their condition or believe that their drinking only negatively affects and hurts them. However, addiction is a chronic disease that physically alters a person’s brain, often accompanied by behavioral changes, puts people at risk of financial and legal troubles, as well as brings about memory loss or degrades cognitive abilities—all of which heavily impacts the people who love them like you, children, family members, and friends.

As the spouse of someone struggling with alcoholism, we certainly can imagine what you may have gone through up to this point, how hard you’ve tried to help, the love and support, compassion and even anger and frustration—addiction can quickly destroy the strongest willed, the most successful people who appear to have it all together faster than most realize if left untreated.

We’re here to help. Please take a few minutes to complete our admissions form below. One of our program administrators will call you to discuss how we can help, our program, what treatment options may best meet your needs, and answer any questions you might have.

It's incredibly humbling... surreal even, to think back to when we opened our first sober house in St. Petersburg, and to see all the men, families, and friends that have been touched by our community. We love you all! Thank you for your honest feedback.

This place has been an amazing experience for me. The owners and staff care about the residents and help them learn how to live a positive and productive life. After countless relapses I made the decision to come to Real Recovery Tampa and the accountability and friends I've made while living here has made all the difference. This place is newly renovated and the living conditions are fantastic. Getting involved in a 12 step program and attending meetings on a regular basis has helped me grow to be a better person. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay sober and make a positive change in their life.

This place has been an amazing experience. I currently stay here at real recovery and I must say it includes everything you could ask for in a sober living facility. From nightly meetings and plenty of fellow peers to speak with, as well as firm yet understanding leader ship. If you are looking for a safe space to call home and get your life on the right track then this is the place for you.. 10/10 would recommend to others in need.

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!

I have struggled for many years with a debilitating case of untreated alcoholism , until I made the life changing decision to come to Real Recovery St.Pete. With the support of staff, and residents alike, I am still sober sober 13 months later. I can not say enough good things about this place! Thank you Real Recovery!

I honestly wouldn't consider this residency a halfway house. It's much too clean, the appliances and units are brand new. The furnishings are upheld and cared for. The property itself is maintained multiple times a week. The staff and owners lookout for not just the resident's well-being but their best interests as well. And the property maintains a safe place for men of all afflictions to recover in a safe and sober environment. I would highly recommend this for anyone serious about their recovery.

Real Recovery is the best choice in all regards. Their facilities are amazing, the amount of work and money the owner puts into his properties is unmatched. The programs they have are also the best. House managers are also super involved, go to the same meetings and know what is going on with the clients.

This place has saved me from myself. I am so grateful to be here and staying clean with the help of John and the rest of the community. I, like most addicts, needed a stable environment and accountability and I am happily clean for the longest amount of time I ever have been.

I am currently a resident at Real Recovery in North Tampa. The apartments at the facility have all been remodeled and are like new. The property is really clean and I have access to all the amenities as well as a pool table, a workout gym, a library, a computer room, and an air hockey table. The staff is very helpful and supportive and the residents are all like one big Family. I’m glad I found this place and would not be where I am today had I not. Lastly, if you’re not looking for a better way of life this is probably not the place for you.

I recently moved into Real Recovery and I have been very impressed! I came from a sober living situation in St. Pete but moved back home to Bradenton. If you are looking for a clean, sober living environment - this is it! Mark is a very open and relatable person to talk to. The men here are open, eager to help, and make you feel welcome.

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. 💙

Real Recovery is the real deal. Everyone there has the same goals; stay sober, support those around you, attend meetings, follow the 12 steps, and lead a clean life. If your goals are not consistent with these principles do not consider Real Recovery as an option. The place is clean and was recently updated; giant TVs in every room and all the amenities of home. If you are serious in your sobriety this place is for you. JJ and Patrick are the best and will call you out if you try to fake it to make it. I highly recommend Real Recovery.
