Sober House Description:
The Men’s Home VA is a men’s sober living house in Alexandria, VA.
As stated in its charter, the purpose of The Men’s Home is “to provide
a home-like environment for alcoholics who are sincere in wanting to recover from alcoholism: to provide food, bed, information, fellowship and the sharing of spiritual values which are a part of that recovery; to expose the alcoholic to other recovering alcoholics so that, together, they can regain self-respect, confidence, and a useful place in the community; and to help attain sobriety through the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous.”
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.
For the newly recovering man, The Sober Living Home provides an alternative residence and family environment. It encourages new patterns of social relationships and supports the healing process of alcoholism recovery.
With a singular focus on providing a living environment to help men in early recovery transition to full, healthy, and functional lives, The Men’s Home is not a boarding house or a treatment center. It is not formally affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, although it is supported by many members and groups of the Washington-area AA community through financial and other contributions, resident sponsorship, and fellowship.
The Men’s Home has served recovering men for over 60 years with the sole
support of private contributions, which are tax deductible.
