Sober Living in Virginia
With a rise of residents seeking treatment in Virginia, sober housing has also been on the rise. Sober living residences are safe and clean environments that provide those in recovery from substance abuse disorder a home that enables them to begin living a better and sober life; one supported by peers and mentors. Some sober living residences in Virginia are peer-run homes. They promote self-help groups, frequent house meetings, and necessary drug screenings before residents are admitted and during an individual’s stay. This may be mandatory for sober living residents in some homes.
Virginia’s sober houses are meant to house residents who have undergone rehabilitation programs. They help them get back on their feet, be it returning to work or going back to school in a span of months while living with fellow sober living residents. Fellow residents understand and are ready to support and encourage each other, speaking about their recovery journey struggles and successes with no judgment.
A list of all sober houses in Virginia is available below.
