Maine Sober Living Operators
Nearly all sober living providers offer a supportive and safe living environment in their recovery homes. Most sober living homes in Maine are located in Portland, but there are plenty of other sober houses throughout the state. Most sober homes serve only one gender, but some are coed. Most recovery residences require participation in sober house meetings, A.A. or N.A. meetings outside of the home, and nearly all sober living requires random drug and alcohol screening for all residents.
