What is Sober Living?

Sober living homes are safe, clean, drug & alcohol-free residences where persons in recovery live until they are ready to transition into independent living. Essentially, sober living environments like Farmview Homes provide residents with personal accountability in consistently maintained, peaceable environments where they live with others who are also in early recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism. Sober living homes are an important part of the continuum of care for substance use disorder - generally being the last stop on the road to independent living. Our residents generally stay with us anywhere from three months to a year. During that time, our residents gain employment, form friendships, develop and implement lifeskills learned in treatment or elsewhere, and get involved in the local recovery community (whether twelve step based or otherwise).
