The Tanner House is a coed sober house in Providence, RI.

Sober living houses, also called sober homes and sober living environments, are facilities that provide safe housing and supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug rehabilitation programs. Sober houses serve as a transitional environment between such programs and mainstream society.

Additional Information:

Sober living homes are group residences for people who are recovering from addiction. In most instances, people who live in sober homes have to follow certain house rules and contribute to the home by doing chores. Most importantly, residents must stay sober throughout their stay in the home.

Tanner House is located on Tanner Street, off Prairie Avenue, in South Providence, within walking distance of downtown Providence and near several bus lines. Many men and women have passed through its doors and found a path from the homelessness they had experienced to a more permanent housing situation. For a modest rental payment for their housing and a willingness to change, they have found an opportunity to examine their lives and develop goals for themselves. Ten single adults, along with a live-in house manager, live at Tanner House. Each resident enjoys a private bedroom. Common areas, such as bathrooms, living rooms, two kitchens, two porches, a finished basement with exercise equipment, and a fenced-in yard are part of their living arrangements.

The house is also furnished with a washer and dryer, and residents are provided with local telephone, cable television, and internet access. No smoking is allowed inside Tanner House. Before moving into Tanner House, each resident is interviewed by the director of the house to determine his or her willingness to participate actively in achieving goals, such as a substance-free lifestyle, employment and improved coping skills. The use of alcohol or drugs is strictly prohibited and is grounds for discharge from the house.
